Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The 15x50IS AW is unique among high-magnification binoculars because they incorporate Canon remarkable Optical Image Stabilizer technology. Proven highly effective in Canon video camcorders and professional lenses, this revolutionary system employs a novel Vari- Angle Prism that instantly and continuously makes adjustments to maintain a steady image. With Canon Optical Image Stabilizer, you can enjoy the resolving power of these binoculars without a tripod. You can even use them from within moving vehicles. Their shake-free performance not only enhances your ability to view fine detail but also reduces eye strain and fatigue.

The IS series feature eyepiece lenses with a unique Doublet Field Flattener, which dramatically reduces curvature of field. As a result, there is none of the image distortion and blurring at the periphery typical of high-magnification binoculars. This advanced design also results in long eye relief, which enables eyeglass wearers to view the entire field without vignetting.

Canon superior optical engineering also provides unusually wide apparent field-of view. This is particularly important in high magnification binoculars as it makes it easier to locate your desired subject.

Product Description

The Canon 15x50 IS Binocular delivers truly outstanding optical performance and a well-stabilized, high-magnification view. Whether upon the water's edge or high in the upper deck of a stadium, the 15x50 IS will put you right in the middle of the action. The 15x50 IS binocular's great for big game hunters, spectators of the more distant sports such as surfing, or anyone with a hunkering for incredible pulling power which can actually be observed without a tripod. It is a water resistant design with a tripod socket, to allow for easy mounting to tripods or monopods for extended periods of observation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Image Stabilising Binoculars 14 Feb 2006
As the proud recent owner of a pair of 15x50 Canon IS binoculars I can wholeheartedly endorse the two reviews above. What neither of them commented on was the wonderful, fringeless abberation free flat field of view. Contrast is high although with the higher magnification compared with a 10 x 50 binocular, the image brightness is reduced although this is almost unnoticeable because of the excellent light transmission of the optics.
The eyepieces are easy to use while wearing spectacles and the soft fold down rubber eyecups keep your spectacles from contacting the eyepiece lens. If used without spectacles the right hand eyepiece dioptre adjustment is stiff but - hey you only need to set it once! Turn on the image stabilisation and the unviewable becomes instantly viewable and detail that would be missed is there in crystal clarity. I use my binoculars for both terestrial and astronomical purposes and I must say that they are the finest binoculars I have ever owned bar none.
I was, like the previous reviewer, concerned about the soft case although the binoculars seem so robust that they would be unlikely to suffer damage. What I was more concerned about was the lack of objective lens caps (they are provided for the eyepieces) however a quick examination found that there was a standard 58mm thread on each lens and 2 x UV (multicoated) filters and 2 x internal clip lens caps later I am fully protected. These are fine for terrestial work and actually protect the lenses from dew when using them for astronomy.
My overall comment is that these binoculars are worth every penny of the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality doesn’t come cheap 11 Oct 2003
I recently purchased some Canon IS binoculars after a lot of thought about the price. I’m a regular binoculars user – doorstep astronomy, wildlife, birds feeding in the garden, hill walking where I live in Scotland and holidays abroad. I guess that I pick up my binoculars most days to look at something. If I were not a regular user I probably wouldn’t have considered this purchase. My first move was to visit a camera and photography shop that actually had some binoculars in stock and try them out. The results were superb with the high magnification models (15x50 and 18x50) and less effective, though still excellent, with the lower magnifications (8x25, 10x30 and 12x36). My advice is, if you’re going to take the plunge, go for the top of the range. Get the 15x50 or 18x50 model. It’s worth the extra expense. When considering this purchase, don’t forget the quality of Canon products, especially the optics. They’ve been making quality cameras for years, and lenses are their speciality.
When you weigh up the cost of these binoculars bear the following in mind. If you bought a new suit or outfit for a wedding, how much would it cost? How many times would you use it? What is the cost for every time you use it? How about the binoculars? How long should they last and what would be the cost every time you used them? By my reckoning they’re for life (I have a pair of binoculars that are 34 years old) and worth every penny for a regular user like me. There are some other points worth noting.
The binoculars come in a soft case and I’m nervous about anything that pricey taking a knock, so I purchased a camera style hard case, like a small briefcase, with sponge inside for just over 40.

5.0 out of 5 stars 15 x 50 IS Canon binoculars 18 Dec 2003
Like the other chap i spent alot of time pondering whether or not to purchase these bins, i do alot of walking and love watching aircraft fly over where i live, so, i took the plunge and bought them, all i can say is that they are fantastic, clarity is brilliant and optics sensational. My friends and work collegues all laughed when i told them i had bought them, what a waste of money they said! But, after they had had a go the feedback was excellent, it shut them up! I would not want any other binoculars, these are the nuts and worth every penny!!!
