Fujinon 600017066 overview

  • 1Description

The Fujinon 14x40 TS1440 Techno-Stabi Image-Stabilized Binocular provides the kind of stabilization needed for its high 14x magnification and is a joy to use handheld. In easy conditions with 7 or 8x binoculars, it is relatively simple to get large, steady images up close and personal. But as magnification increases, this becomes a more difficult task. Eventually the smaller field of view and more pronounced shake of a large optic can render big binoculars a very frustrating affair.

But the Techno-Stabi's whopping 5° of stabilization in every direction makes it actually useful in such situations as tracking a moving subject while on a moving platform yourself. It is also great for observing from airplanes, helicopters, or boats, and as a completely waterproofed unit it can be used effectively anywhere.

Beyond its stabilizing capacity, the 14x40 Techno-Stabi TS has Fujinon's EBC multi-coatings on every optical surface and also has phase-coated BAK4 roof prisms for great brightness and contrast. The Techno-Stabi accepts DC and AC power sources in addition to the 4 AA batteries normally used.

Simple on/off button for stabilization, rather than a button you need to constantly push
Rubber-armored housing

Fujinon 600017066 reviews

14x40 TS1440 Techno-Stabi Image-Stabilized Binocular is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Binoculars Great image stabilization! I first bought the Canon 10x42L but was disappointed with the stabilization. All I can say about the Fujinon is wow! However, I give it 3 stars for the following reasons: 1) No lens cap or protection for the front of the lens. And, if you try to buy the Fuji filters they are not available. By the way, the Objective thread size is non standard so you cannot use a camera filter - way to go Fuji! 2) I find it a lot harder to adjust the distance between the eyes, than I did with the Canon. I don't know how to quantify it, but I think the Canons were sharper - it just that Canon's stabilization pales in comparison to Fuji's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING PRODUCT AND SELLER We use these in our aircraft for aerial surveillance. These stabilized binocs are I believe the best for the price that can be found. 'much better than image stablized devices, these are the closest to real honest to goodness gyro stablized optics that one can find in this price range, without spending litterally thousands. Very solid in feel and construction and it comes with a perfectly fitted Pelican case, ready to go. Even a cut-out for the batteries. And, the folks at B&H are outstanding. So good to find customer service alive and well. We'll be getting ready to purchase a FLIR optics from B&H very soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought two pair Bought two pair based on strength of reviews from boaters. Gave them as gifts to friends who already had older, more expensive units. They loved the performance and more compact size, although they are pretty heavy. The serious storage case included is a great idea to insure their longevity, also. I borrowed a pair from one of the friends and went out in my own boat on a 20kt Lake Michigan day- powerful magnification and clear optics. The waves were big enough that the image wasn't totally frozen but the amplitude of the oscillations was so reduced, so smooth, that you could easily read road signs, registration numbers on other boats, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liked these so much I bought another pair as a gift If you are boating or sailing, these are a must have. Takes all the effort out of trying to identify and ensure alignment with channel markers, cans, nuns, etc. even from miles away and in rough waters. Identify boat numbers and read them clearly from even 2 miles. Perfect too for watching wildlife. The gyro stabilization is wonderful, batteries last a long time and the binoculars are completely waterproof. You can spend thousands more and not get the power or performance of these binoculars. The case that comes with these is also waterproof and virtually indestructible.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Stabilzers I originally bought the Canon 10X42L but I was not too happy with the stabilizing system. I read reviews about this and I figure I give it a try. There is a day and nigh difference between Cano's and Fujinon's stabilizing system. The Fujinon is much better. Optic wise, I like the Canon 10x42L better. I find it harder to adjust the spacing between the eyes on these than I did on Canon's. ALSO, be aware that these binos do not come with any protection for the lens! AND, it is not a standard size, so a lens cap or filter is out of the question. Fuji makes special filter, but nobody has them in stock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I'm not one to write reviews but, these binoculars are great. Other reviews have, for the most part, said it all except this. Don't bother trying to get filters from fujinon. They are expensive and hard to find. 48mm photo filters and lens caps fit these wonderful glasses. Normally I'm Nikon all the way. However, the TS1440 beat nikon by about $. There is no way you could be displeased with this unit. I would be surprised to learn if Nikon was better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Great Binoculars - Addendum An additional comment, below, about related accessories discussed in my Really Great Binoculars review of the Fujinon 14x40 Techno-Stabi Binoculars. While the binoculars do not have a tripod mounting provision, a separate accessory, such as the Nikon Binoc-U-Mount, can be used. The Nikon mount has two straps (which can be adjusted so that the stabilization controls and focus knob can still be operated) to hold the binoculars securely in-place. A standard 1/4-inch tripod screw is built into the bottom of the binocular mount.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I didn't know you binoculars could be this good I used to use a pair of Steiner Military Marine 8x30's. They were optically very clear and bright. Even at 8x, theywould make my eyes hurt after extended viewing and 8x isn'treally all that powerful.I first saw these binoculars on Ken Rockwell's site and hehighly recommended them. I was looking for a pair ofstabilized binoculars and I was originally interested in theCanon 8x25. I never heard of these Fujinon but I waswilling to give them a try (and to spend the big bucks).After just 1 minute of use, Iwas blown away. The 5 degrees of image stabilization in ALLDIRECTIONS blows Canon away. Canon only gives you 0.7degrees of stabilization up and down...that's only good ifyou stand still and it compensates for your shaky hands. These Fujinon's have 5 degrees...you can walk with theseglued to your face and you wouldn't lose your subject. Inever knew things could be so crisp and clear at 14x withouta tripod. These binoculars are sharp with and withoutstabilization on....that's unbelievable. Ken Rockwell saysthat the Canon's get soft with stabilization on...he's right. Build quality isexcellent and even though they are a little on the largeside, they fit great in my hands. The focus knob is in agreat location and I can easily access it with no problems.I was originally used to Steiner's set it and forget itSports Autofocus but I like the focus knob on theseFujinon's better as it allows me to zero in on a near or farsubject. The exit pupils are small because this is a 14x40binocular but if you use these in daylight , then that's notan issue. Battery life is fine. I don't view them for hours at atime so the batteries last a decent amount of time. Thebinoculars come in a yellow Pelican 1400 case. It's a nicecase and quite unexpected being that the case alone isaround $60. I wouldn't take the case with me because it istoo big. I would rather put the binoculars in a smallercamera bag. I don't really know how else to describe them. Just trythem out and you'll understand. I think the uninformedconsumer goes for the Canon because they see that it hasImage Stabilization and they think that's cool but theydon't understand what that really means or the physicsbehind it. If you understand what 0.7degrees and 5 degrees of stabilization equates too or howCanon's stabilization and Fujinon's stabilization works, Idon't think you can do better than these binoculars at thisprice.These are an amazing pair of binoculars. I just wish theymarketed them more so more people could experience them. Expertise: Serious Hobbyist Problems Encountered: No cover for the front objectives. I would have expectedsome push on caps at least. If you take good care of yourstuff, don't worry about it, if you beat on yourbinoculars...be careful. I tried to buy the $85 UV filtersand use them as a permanent lens protector but the UVfilters are orange and they make your whole image lookorange which is very weird. I would go for the polarizersbut they are very expensive. Other than that minor quip, the binoculars are built like atank and they don't suffer from any optical issueswhatsoever. I only gave design 4 stars because these are alittle on the heavy side. Previous Equivalent Item Owned: Steiner Military Marine 8x30
