The 8x42 KF Binocular from FujiFilm with Fujinon legendary optics utilizes phase-corrected BK7 roof prisms with anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics to create images that are clear and bright with minimal distortion and true color transmission. The 8x magnification is ideal for resolving detail in heavy brush where accurate identification is critical; and with a long eye relief, a wide exit pupil, and a wide apparent angle of view you are free to experience an immersive observational experience without the noticeable visible hand-shake common with higher magnification optics.
Built to withstand the rigors of constant outdoor use, the housing features an armored exterior that protects the binocular from drops and impacts as well as helps to provide a slip-resistant grip, especially when it is cold and wet out. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed for water and fogproof performance in all weather conditions. For long-duration observation sessions, the KF binoculars can be mounted on a tripod using an optional adapter.

Canon's series of image stabilized binoculars deliver 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 a close view of action with this well-contoured 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.
The revised edition of their 12x36 model has dramatically decreased the bulk and weight of the unit. The drawbacks are that it no longer accepts 43mm filters and the minimum focusing distance has been lengthened.
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.
The 15x50 IS was not designed to be habitually worn around the neck, but if you prefer to carry your optic in this manner then consider a thick neoprene strap instead of the supplied flat woven strap. If you'll be using the binocular in cold weather, it ishighly recommended to use lithium batteries instead of alkaline.
The 15x50 IS is threaded to accept 58mm filters, which is convenient for using polarizers around water, but it 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 (and thus improve contrast).
