Comments about Nikon 16x32 StabilEyes VR Image Stabilized Binocular:

I look at the scenery and the town through the window of my high rise flat. I also take it when travelling for much the same purpose.
The magnification is as quoted and the tradeoff between magnification, light and weight is satisfactory. The stabilizer works OK.
There is a risk that if the batteries go flat and I or a friend turn on the image stabilizer, something will break and having it fixed will be problematical from here. Its a pity that the Nikon engineers did not foresee this risk and build in a precautionary mechanism to avoid it (like shutting the image stabilization down before the battery goes flat). Better lens covers would be good too.

Comments about Nikon 16x32 StabilEyes VR Image Stabilized Binocular:

These glasses are excellent. The image is exceptionally clear. The stabilization system is the best I have experienced. I live on the Pacific Ocean in California with a 180 degree ocean view from an elevation of 200 feet. These glasses provide me with a clear, easy to focus image of the whales, the otters, the dolphins and seals as they pass. Sea birds can be seen diving for fish or resting on the kelp beds or riding the waves. Ships are clearly visible and markings show up clearly. My only criticism is that they are a bit heavy to hold for long periods. I find them superior to my Canon 12 x 36 IS for clarity and I prefer the switch powered-on stabilization to the Canon button control.

Just returned from a cruise to Alaska. One guy had similar binoculars and I loved them. I trusted B&H to sell me the best at my price limitation and to recommend same.
