Canon 1373C002 overview

  • 1Description

Adapting the IS system from their line of EF lenses, the Canon 12x32 IS Image Stabilized Binocular employs a lens-shift system uses a combination of a vibration gyro-mechanism and microprocessors that detect and counter the appearance of hand-shake by moving the internal lens assembly to make the image appear steady. As a general rule, optics of this magnification and higher are extremely prone to the appearance of visible hand-shake, which interferes with clear and immersive views. Through the use of image stabilization, users can enjoy high-power observations without the distracting shake, or the need for tripods or other support systems normally required to achieve steady images.

Two IS modes allow the performance to be tailored to the situation: Normal IS is ideal for moving or multiple subjects, while Powered IS improves the stabilization when observing a single stationary subject. An intuitive two-button user interface makes choosing the mode simple and easy. The IS runs on two included AA batteries, and when not using the image stabilization, the optic will operate as a conventional pair of binoculars.

Optically, the binoculars are built with traditional Porro prisms, and an integrated field-flattener lens that corrects spherical aberration for distortion-free views, especially at the edges. Canon's proprietary Super Spectra Coating is used to limit color bias, lens flare and ghosting; while maximizing light transmission, color rendition, clarity, and contrast across the entire visible spectrum. With this new IS system, the close focus distance has been drastically reduced versus earlier models that use a different IS mechanism.

Image Stabilization
  • Lens-Shift image stabilization system uses a vibration gyro-mechanism, in conjunction with microprocessors, that detect and counter the appearance of hand-shake by moving the internal lens assembly horizontally and vertically, to make the image appear steady

Canon 1373C002 reviews

12x32 IS Image Stabilized Binocular is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just wonderful I cannot say how much I enjoy these. �The optics are sharper -- much sharper than the older models -- and with the improved stabilization I can see details a mile away and do so without jitter. �I use these to watch crew rowing races and for the first time I can see the entirety of the race whereas my inability to hold my old (and rather good) 10x binoculars steady made them useless beyond 500 meters. � In fact, I first bought the 10x version of these and found the stabilization so good that I returned them for the 12x. �High recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs re-design of eye cups. This is the 2nd IS Canon binoculars I've purchased. They deliver a good close-up of far away items, but need some changes. Firstly, the eye cups, if not rolled down, severely limit the field of vision to a very narrow range. In order to widen the field of vision, roll down the eye cups, and the view widens considerably. Secondly, I used the Power IS, and could not see any difference between it, and regular IS. I was looking for a WOW moment, and it never arrived. My first-gen Canon IS's are much easier to use with eye cups that don't hinder field of vision.Canon engineers need to re-design the eye cups. I would not have purchased this IS if I knew the eyecups hindered field of vision.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not great for bird and wildlife watching As others have warned, the eyecups on these Canon IS binoculars are terrible. I have to press the binoculars very hard to my eyes to get a full image; with regular pressure, the image size is reduced by 50% and is like looking down a cardboard tube. To get my eye close enough to the exit glass, I have to push very hard against my face, uncomfortably so. The exit pupil is only 2.7 mm, so you have to line your pupils up perfectly with the binocular exit pupil, otherwise you get black crescent cut-offs of the image. I found it very hard to align the binocular exit pupils with my eye pupils. With the small exit pupil, you are unable to move your eyes around to look at the periphery of the image. So you have to learn to look perfectly straight ahead and move your head to scan. The image stabilization is good with very little lag when moving the binoculars. The build quality appears to be good. I am quite steady holding my Nikon 10 x 50 binoculars without the above optical problems, so I am returning these Canon IS binocs and will continue with my regular binoculars. The advantage of the IS is not overcome by the horrible ergonomics of the eyecups and small exit pupil.
