The 18x50 IS were not designed to be habitually worn around the neck, but if you prefer to carry your binoculars in this manner, then consider a thick neoprene strap instead of the supplied flat woven strap. If you'll be using the binoculars in cold weather, it is highly recommended to use lithium batteries (optional) instead of alkaline.
The 18x50 IS are threaded to accept 58mm filters, which is convenient for using polarizers around water, but this also means that during extremely bright or humid conditions, you can use a pair of 58mm lens hoods to help shield the objective lenses from dew and stray light, thus improving contrast.
Superb quality, high power binoculars with 18x magnification and Canon precision optics featuring an Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) lens element to reduce chromatic aberration and the Super Spectra lens coating that delivers vivid, high contrast view with accurate colours.
Enjoy excellent viewing in harsh weather conditions thanks to weather resistance to JIS 4 specification. The rugged build quality features a rubber finish to withstand the harshest conditions, making these binoculars ideal for heavy-duty use.
Enjoy remarkably steady images thanks to Canon's Image Stabilizer (IS) technology, which counteracts a wide range of different types of shake and movement when viewing hand-held, or from moving vehicles or boats. These bright binoculars feature a large diameter 50mm front optic for a bright field-of-view.
Spot your subject easily and experience a beautiful 60.3° apparent wide field of view with clear, flat, low distortion from edge to edge thanks to the porro II prism optics and doublet field flattener element.
Designed for comfortable operation over long periods of use, even when wearing sunglasses or prescription glasses, thanks to adjustable eyepieces with 15.0mm long eye relief that minimises ‘tunnel effect’.
