Image Stabilised Binoculars – All Weather Binoculars with Image Stabiliser (IS) Technology
Nothing beats a steady hand though this is not always the case. If you hold a pair of binoculars long enough, your hands will shake eventually. Many factors such as tiredness, muscle weakness and even happiness can impact your stance and cause binocular shake. This is especially the case with stronger binoculars. As a matter of fact, it makes your eyes tired, causes a distraction and makes it hard to focus on your main object.
In order to get around this problem, some high-end binoculars have Image Stabilising technology. This technology was first designed by Canon and Nikon for their range of high performance camcorders, but it has been successfully used for binoculars instead. Initially the first consignment of ISB came on the market more than 10 years ago and since then there have been much improvements made over the decade on all available models. Nikon, Canon and FujiFilm presently produce various image stabilised models, each offering something extra to the consumer.
When it comes to the binocular shake, most people would be prone to just use a tripod. This is really the case if you have a subject that moves around a lot. When the binoculars have IS technology, you do not have to use a tripod. If the binoculars have the ability to magnify at 10x,12x, 14x or 16x, then this technology is utilised with the help of Vari-Angle Prism. This has both an up and down and side to side motion detectors. It also has a microprocessor that can adjust the Vari Angle Prism on the sides, based upon how much shake the motion sensors detect. This will automatically adjust the refraction angle, which will also eliminate the extra motion. How does this affect you? You can focus on your subject, without the shakiness.
