Image Stabilizing (IS) Binoculars
Last updated: 9/11/2019
These image-stabilizing binoculars from Fujinon are waterproof and feature 14x magnification.
Image Stabilizing (IS) binoculars provide a steady image, even on a bouncing boat. The rolling, pitching and bouncing motion on a boat makes it nearly impossible to keep an image in focus using high–powered binoculars, unless they are Image Stabilized (IS). IS binoculars automatically compensate for movement to deliver crisp, sharp images, even at magnifications as high as 18–power, which is more than double the magnification typically found in marine binoculars.
How Image Stabilization Binoculars Work
Fujinon's Techno–Stabi IS binoculars are built with dual piezo–motion sensors and gyro position sensors that are linked to direct drive motors for instant and continuous stabilization with low battery drain. They are widely used by the military and law enforcement. At a fraction of the price, the Techno–Stabi achieves a high degree of stabilization in all planes. Two direct drive motors–one horizontal, one vertical–each controlled by its own piezo vibration sensor, instantly stabilize the image. Phase–coated roof prisms provide superior clarity. Power consumption is minimal, and they are completely waterproof.
