Excellent value but with some reservation

  • Conclusion: Overall I'd rate these binos as a VERY good value from a price/performance perspective. Given the low price, the very strong flare/ghosting and annoying 'button hold' hassle take some shine off this product. i.e. the "modest" optical quality of these binos is the weakest part of the whole package.

  • Conclusion: I have a new pair of Canon 10x30IS binoculars. I am amazed by the clarity of the optics, no fussy edges and bright field out to the edges. These are very compact, nearly as portable as a dept. store 7 x 35. The binoculars work very well in normal viewing. When you activate the IS the image stops!
  • Pros: compact and lightweight, easy to activate i.s.
  • Cons: may prove fragile, a little expensive

Canon 10x30IS binoculars

John I, opticsplanet.com

  • Summary: I purchased the Canon 10x30IS binoculars last summer as a second pair of binoculars for astronomy and wildlife. The 10x30IS binoculars are excellent. I consider then a good value because of the Image stabilization. Although my work is optics related, I'm still an inexperienced observer.
  • Pros: Light weight. Image Stabilization. Compact.
  • Cons: IPD settings not marked. Short eye relief for glasses wearers.

  • Excerpt: Canon are famed for the quality of their optical equipment and rightly so. I bought these smart binoculars for my Mum over 15 years ago for her 70th birthday. An avid birdwatcher, 10 X 30 are ideal for this purpose and the image stabiliser function which basically eliminates the "shakes" greatly...
  • Pros: Crisp, clear image and wonderful image stabiliser .
  • Cons: Expensive and could be waterproofed .

  • Summary: After looking at reviews over and over I bought a pair of these binocularrs,and to be honest I am disappointed. They are not highly powered to warrant image stability,anyone looking at these would be better off getting some good 10x50. They are good but not worth the money. Extremely disappointed!

  • Summary: Good product at a competitive price. Fairly compact and not too heavy. They should be excellent for bird watching. The eyepiece adjustment for spectacle wearers could perhaps be made easier to operate.

Typical Canon

  • Summary: The bins themselves are hard to criticise really, they do exactly what they claim to. However, IS can only do so much. Unless you have something like St Vitus' Dance or Huntingdon's it will smooth out your small hand tremors that are part of our natural workings.

Canon 10 x 30 Image Stabilising Binoculars

Timmothehut, Amazon
13 December 2010
  • Summary: Having read other reviews about this product I decided to invest my hard earned and purchase at the going rate for my (relatively) new hobby of birdwatching. I chose them particularly for the IS feature because of the reviews and because i like gadgety things.
