It does what it says it does

  • Excerpt: My tremor had caused me to give up on binoculars. My wife loves birding. It was very frustrating. Now I can see all those cool details that allow identification. Most importantly I can now appreciate the beauty of birds and other wildlife. I wish I had made this purchase years ago.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: Not Waterproof

Satisfied birdwatcher

  • Excerpt: We are beginner birdwatchers and chose the Canon IS 10x30 for my wife, based on internet research on the specs. Her priority is image stabilization because of a hand tremor, and it works well. Seems easy to use, well designed. A little challenging for a person with small hands, and using one hand, but even so, is usable.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses

Image Stabilising Binoiculars

Suds, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I needed a good pair of binoculars for sailing and given that environment image stability was a key feature. The Canon 10x30 IS model is compact, easy use to use and perfect for yachting and boating. My only issue with them is that they don't come with protective covers for the external lens, whilst they have a great bag, a cover to protect all glass surfaces would have been great.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction

Buy a non-slip strap!

Fishman, Adorama
9 January 2013
  • Excerpt: The straps are made of a slippery synthetic coupled with thin plastic connectors. This type of strap will fail during periods of energetic activity such as long hikes while birding. Light weight is important to people with shaking or weak hands. However, if these binoculars fall due to a strap failure and strike a hard surface then they are likely to be badly damaged.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: Lack Of Shock Buffers, Strap Inadequate

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. That's the tradeoff given the fairly low price!

Very good product; great price

Swoop, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: The binoculares are a terrific value. The Canons have very good optical quality with minor, but noticable, chromatic abberation. However, the IS makes up for this shortcoming and makes identifying objects and tracking them very easy. I returned a pair of better optical quality binocs ($100 less) for these and am glad I did. They are not heavy. The carrying case is lousy and cheap but I'm OK with that.
