They're the ideal solution when you want to have powerful and versatile binoculars on hand to bring most anything you view closer.
High Magnification Ratio: 14x
Thanks to an excellent optical system, Canon's 14x32 IS binoculars can deliver impressive performance and a stunning, close-up view through a high magnification ratio of 14x. This makes it easy to see details and action that would likely be missed with the naked eye. From the intricate feathers of a bird on a branch, to the expression on the face of a graduating student or the ball flying out of the ballpark, what you want to see can be brought closer with the 14x32 IS binoculars.
Lens Shift Image Stabilization
The 14x32 IS binoculars feature a powerful Lens Shift Image Stabilization system that's remarkably effective in canceling out possible shaking made by movement and vibration. Borrowing technology from Canon's EF lenses, Lens Shift Image Stabilization maintains a steady view by incorporating a continually adjusting vibration gyro mechanism, moving the IS lens both vertically and horizontally. This helps the 14x32 IS binoculars deliver clear and sharp images with minimal color fringing for a view that's consistently pleasing to look at.
Powered IS Mode with Microcomputer Control Technology
Originating from Canon's high-quality video and digital camera technology, the 14x32 IS binoculars' Powered IS technology significantly improves upon conventional binocular IS technology. Activated with the press of a button, Powered IS makes it easy to maintain a high-magnification view, especially in situations where body movement or strong shake might occur. Toggle between Powered IS and Normal IS to pick the ideal mode for the scene, whether your subject is still or in motion.
Improved Design and Comfortable Grip
Not only does the incorporation of Lens Shift Image Stabilization improve optical performance, but it also has the added benefit of making the 14x32 IS binoculars easy and comfortable to hold. Through the miniaturization of the IS unit the binoculars provide an ergonomic and sturdy grip, allowing quick, intuitive access to the IS switch, focusing ring diopter and more, with ease.
Field Flattener Lens
For edge-to-edge sharpness, the 14x32 IS binoculars use a field flattening lens element. Countering the blurred effect typically rendered by the curvature of conventional lens elements, field flattener lenses help deliver a sharp, low-distortion image across the entire field of view.
