Canon 10x42L IS WP Binoculars

Canon 10x42L IS WP Binoculars

The excellent brightness offered by the large 42mm lens diameters allows for great detail and clear, sharp images. The built-in Image Stabilizer eliminates hand held shake and reduces eye strain, while the soft rubber surfaces ensure a firm and secure handling in the most adverse conditions.

The Canon 10x42 L IS WP uses conventional AA batteries to operate its stabilization system, and can use either traditional alkaline, NiMh, or lithium versions.  It is highly recommended to use lithium whenever conditions are terribly cold, as it greatly increases the battery life at those times.  In conditions below 20°F(-7°C), normal alkaline batteries will provide only a tiny fraction of the operating time that you could expect from lithium power.

Also, the Canon 10x42 L offers 52mm filter threading on the objective lenses, which can be used for polarizers and (best of all) telephoto lens hoods to increase contrast in bright light.
