Canon A002 overview

  • 1Description

Canon's series of image stabilized binoculars delivers outstanding optical performance and stabilization capabilities at a very affordable price.  Whether upon the water's edge or high in the catacombs of a stadium, you'll get close and steady views of action with this 8x25 Canon offering.  A textured rubber coating provides a sure grip as well as a bit of protection from the elements, while the center-mounted focus and stabilizer controls are easily accessible for both hands.  These are streamlined in design, and about the same weight and size as a midsized 8x32 optic.

Image Stabilizer counteracts hand tremors for ±1° movement in all directions

Canon A002 reviews

8x25 IS Image Stabilized Binocular is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value for the Price! I purchased the 8x25 IS binocular knowing that it lacked the features and capability of its big brother the five (5) star rated 10x42 IS. Yes, the 10x42 IS is a superior binocular, no doubt, but I wanted an image stabilized binocular for travel that weighed around one (1) pound. The 8x25 IS fits the bill as the 10x42 IS is at least twice as heavy. Also the 8x25 IS is fairly compact, which is good since I never check bags and space is at a premium. A big plus, the 8x25 IS is very afford-ably priced. I made several international trips/cruises with the diminutive 8x25 IS this past year and couldn't be happier - the 8x25 IS performed flawlessly. Though I always use the neck strap, it would be nice to have a rubberized sleeve or glove that could be slipped over the binocular for a more confident grip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for. I own both the 8 X 25 IS and the 10 X 30 IS at present and have owned the 12 X 36 IS in the past. This is really a case of you get what you pay for. The 8 X 25 IS is a high quality binocular for the asking price. However, I have found the 10 X 30 IS to be a better product in performance and quality and worth the extra money. So, if you are considering buying an IS binocular go with the 10 X 30 IS. Also, I found the 12 X 36 IS to be a bit heavy for most uses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Binoculars These are great binoculars for use at concerts and general use. They also work well for bird watching in a backyard setting. Make sure you buy extra batteries, as they DO NOT LAST long. Online reports say 20 hours, but that's impossible. I'm using new surefire CR123 batteries. Real life use is more like 1, maybe 2 hours max. If you use these regularly, you should probably buy the CR123s from B&H, as they can cost a small fortune at a camera store. CR123s are $12 EACH at my local camera and drug store. Surefire cr123 batteries are $21 for 12 at B&H.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Buy one.I've had mine for two years now and it solved all my problems with viewing from a small plane, underway in a boat or car, panning a landscape, and looking from ground at aircraft (or even stars). All the long range vibrations are gone so that now you can see distant objects with the same clarity are close range. An example: you don't need them for birds at 20 ft, but at 50+ ft I can tell the bird while unstablized cannot. Prince William Sound fishing in Alaska, Whales in Hawaii, birding in NM Refuse,...all great. Optics alone are as good as it gets. Raise the 8, 10, 12X...power to what you think you need and then minimize the power to reduce the wt. as much as acceptable for where you use them. The batteries do last long enough, but take along a spare because you'll dislike the difference. I liked them so much that I even brought a pair for my brother-in-law - that has essential tremors - and his problems just went away. Expertise: Many years out there. Items I Recommend: extra battery

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Binoculars I have the larger 15 x50 also I wanted something lighter for my jeep. So I purchased these and they work great. lighter easier to carry and much less expensive. Iwish Canon would take their photo technology and add it to an serires of image stabilized Binoculars like maybe the 15 x50 or 18 x80,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value and performance Any one who has used binoculars will be familiar with the shaky view when looking through them It's often quite hard on ones eyes and makes it difficult to see anything in great detail. The stabilisation and great magnification make for wonderfully smooth viewing at both day and night. Absolutely excellent. They're not small but they are quite light and not too bulky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best purchase for old shakey hands l am a deer hunter . holding binocular was unsteady until i purchased the image stabilizing 8x25 it has helped a lot.
Date published: 2009-11-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Canon 8x25 IS - Good Enough These binoculars are awesome; lightweight, compact, and crystal clear. A little over-priced but perfect for travel and general use. The only issue is with IS feature. It helps with very windy days or shaky platforms, etc. but it distorts the crystal clear image slightly. It does help control the binoculars but you do loose superior viewing.
