Description

The Canon 15x50 IS All Weather binoculars with one-touch Image Stabilizer technology instantly compensates for binocular shake. Large-diameter 50mm front objective lenses accommodate a wide range of activities from sports to astronomical observation. A multi-coated, Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) lens element in each objective section delivers outstanding image contrast, sharpness, and color clarity. To accommodate eyeglass wearers, 15mm Long-Eye Relief provides greater viewing comfort, and the ergonomic design makes holding easy. An optical anti-fog eyepiece prevents condensation and fogging in foul weather.

      Comments about Canon 15x50mm IS Image Stabilized All Weather Binoculars:

      I've had a set of the Canon 15X50 stabilized binoculars for almost 10 years, and love them. I notice that several of these reviews complained about the Canon repair service, and also about the lack of lens caps. I had to send my pair in for repair several weeks ago - they were getting moisture inside the front glass. Canon replaced the whole front end of the binocs, cleaned them inside, and checked them out. The whole bill, including shipping and handling, was around $250, and I had them back within two weeks. Also, the complaint about no lens caps is not really valid. Those two big pieces of glass you see in front aren't really the lenses - they are just two pieces of plate glass, evidently to protect the actual lenses, and can be easily and safely cleaned with any soft cloth.

      And, use lithium batteries - I understand these will last much longer than regular AA's.

        Live on waterfront. Enjoy watching activities on the water. Have Canon 12x36 IS as well and find the 15x50s just as easy to use. I am 77 and small yet I do not find these too heavy as some have claimed.

              I use these binoculars in a variety of ways: sky gazing, nature watching and in a unique application, because I am involved in emergency medical services, for ready warning placards on all types of vehicles...from a real safe distance. This is where the stabilization feature has been extremely useful.

              Comments about Canon 15x50mm IS Image Stabilized All Weather Binoculars:

              These Binoculars are great for stargazing, except they can get heavy. I don't think you will find a pair of 15x that aren't heavy. It would be great if Canon gave you a set of quality lenscaps. At least you can screw on a couple uv filters to protect the front end. Overall I'm happy with them enough so that I just bought a pair of Canon 8x25 IS

                  I spent a lot of money on these, and really thought they would perform better. There was a surprising amount of flare off bright stars like Sirius. It was a surprise. Works great in all other applications: birding, looking at the moon, sports. Just bring extra batteries, but mine burns through them quickly. For the money, I'd buy something not IS, but with better optics, Zeiss maybe?

                  We find this product makes finding objects much easier than conventional binoculars. This valuable a product should have lense caps to protect the expensive lenses. None are available, so home made is necessary. The batteries run down much quicker than I would like and rechargeables do not last at all since they do not take a high enough voltage to run the stabilizer very long.

                  I bought the 15x50 IS binoculars mainly for astronomical observations, and they have performed flawlessly. The image stabilization has been incredible with lunar observations and deep sky objects. I am thoroughly impressed. They are a handful, literally, but the slight bulkiness is well worth the views. The optics are crystal clear and very sharp. The focusing knob is very fine and works great for that perfect sweet spot focus. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in using them for astronomy.

                    Comments about Canon 15x50mm IS Image Stabilized All Weather Binoculars:

                    The 15x50 IS are great and better than most. They are heavy so get a strong wide strap. The one supplied will hurt your neck and will bounce around. A hard case would be wise for transporting them. The soft case supplied is just for show. If they need repair, throw them out. Canon will charge enough for you to simply buy new ones (+/-$1200.00). I sent them to the NJ repair and service department. They dropped a distance of 3 feet when opening the car door. They dropped on the eyepiece and it snapped off like fresh peas.

                    I would strongly recommend the binoculars because they work well. they are very ergonomic and compare very well with the competitors binoculars. For eyeglass wearers the eyepiece is better than the CANON 10x42 LISWP that I am considering as a replacement.

                    The higher power is very attractive. I would like to see the Higher power be LIS WP. I will probably buy another pair. They really are great binoculars.

                    Customer Q & A

                    Q1: Do the binos still work in a manual, non image stabilized mode when the batteries are dead or is there no use?

                    A: Absolutely, to engage the image stabilization there is a button that you will press on the top of the binocular. if you have not pressed it or if the batteries are dead the binocular will still work just not the Image stabilization.

                    Q2: Where are these binoculars manufactured?

                    A: Canon 15X50 IS Image Stabilized Binoculars are manufactured in Japan.
