  • 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.

Best Value for the Price!

  • 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
  • Cons: plastic exterior - can be scratched

You get what you pay for.

Jack, Canon

  • Conclusion: I own both the 8 X 25 IS and the 10 X 30 IS at present and have owned the 12 X 36 IS in the past. This is really a case of you get what you pay for. The 8 X 25 IS is a high quality binocular for the asking price. However, I have found the 10 X 30 IS to be a better product in performance and quality and worth the extra money. So, if you are considering buying an IS binocular go with the 10 X 30 IS. Also, I found the 12 X 36 IS to be a bit heavy for most uses.

8x25 is different from the 10x30 IS

George, Abes of Maine
26 February 2009
  • Summary: I have owned the Canon 10x30 IS binoculars for a few years now, and love them. Because I wanted a smaller and lighter IS binocular, I bought the 8x25 IS Canon. I found that the IS mechanism is different in the 8x25. In the 10x30 (and higher powers) it is a "Vari-angle prism." This locks the image in solidly,and helps one see clearly. In the 8x25, it has a "Tilt System", and when I engage the IS, the image "drifts" for a split second before settling down and working well.
  • Pros: Compact, IS works good, Lightweight, Quality Lenses

Canon 8x25 IS - Good Enough

REC, Canon
15 February 2009
  • Conclusion: These binoculars are awesome; lightweight, compact, and crystal clear. A little over-priced but perfect for travel and general use. The only issue is with IS feature. It helps with very windy days or shaky platforms, etc. but it distorts the crystal clear image slightly. It does help control the binoculars but you do loose superior viewing.

Binoculars

Geoman, Canon
14 February 2009
  • Conclusion: I have the larger 15 x50 also I wanted something lighter for my jeep. So I purchased these and they work great. lighter easier to carry and much less expensive. Iwish Canon would take their photo technology and add it to an serires of image stabilized Binoculars like maybe the 15 x50 or 18 x80,

Excellent value and performance

  • Summary: Any one who has used binoculars will be familiar with the shaky view when looking through them It's often quite hard on ones eyes and makes it difficult to see anything in great detail. The stabilisation and great magnification make for wonderfully smooth viewing at both day and night. Absolutely excellent. They're not small but they are quite light and not too bulky.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
