Summary: Canon 8 x 25 IS Binoculars These binoculars are well made and are for people who require a fairly simple pair of binoculars that will remove blurring usually caused by hand shake. Best for those who enjoy bird watching, sport and theatre. Producing consistent high quality images whilst being simple to use. The binoculars come boxed with manual, case, neck strap and battery. The battery has one problem (battery type CR123), which is a type not stocked by many shops.
Conclusion: I purchased the 8x25 IS binocular knowing that it lacked the features and capability of its big brother the five (5) star rated 10x42 IS. Yes, the 10x42 IS is a superior binocular, no doubt, but I wanted an image stabilized binocular for travel that weighed around one (1) pound. The 8x25 IS fits the bill as the 10x42 IS is at least twice as heavy. Also the 8x25 IS is fairly compact, which is good since I never check bags and space is at a premium.
Pros: light weight - great for travel and extended use, quality optics - outstanding image quality
Summary: I found these glasses to be remarkable for the size and price. Having purchased the first stabilizing binoculars manufactured two years ago, I was not expecting that the smaller size and weight would translate into better quality. I am very pleased with the product. My former purchase was Bushnell and very heavy. The resolution is the same, the price is better and these weigh less. I use these for spotting deer at 200 yards and birds at 50 yards.
Summary: Compact and lightweigh IS binocular that delivers sharp clear images. Although not waterproof and of plactic construction, it stands well to harsh environments. Uses expensive and not easily available battery with mediocre life span.
Summary: This is a great product.I would reccomend it to others for there outdor activitiesIts great if your going to be suing it inside,but if your going to be outdoors alot i would suggest buying the waterprrof version of this item,its more money but well worth the money
Summary: these things are great for everything from hunting to sports. the image stabilization is unbelievable. Watch cheerleaders at you next pro football game, and without the handshake that is typical of such activities!!!
