Canon 18×50 IS Binoculars



The high-magnification weather-resistant binoculars with built-in Image Stabilizer. Designed for professionals and uncompromising enthusiasts, these high-magnification binoculars incorporate innovative technologies that set a new standard of performance.


  • WIDE-ANGLE VIEW – Binoculars with an apparent field- of-view greater than 65°offering a broader scope of view.
  • RUBBER COATING – Cushions the binoculars against shocks and makes them easier to grip.
  • DOUBLE FIELD FLATTENER – A double lens group that compensates for curvature of field, ensuring excellent image flatness and clarity.
  • OPTICAL IMAGE STABILIZER – A computer-controlled Vari-Angle Prism (VAP) system that compensates for movement to provide a clearer view.
  • LONG EYE-RELIEF – Allows users who wear glasses to see the entire image.
  • WATERPROOF – Will survive submersion up to one metre underwater for five minutes. Not suitable for prolonged underwater use.
  • WEATHERPROOF – Can be used in rain or snow and rinsed in running water to remove mud and dirt.
  • PORRO PRISM –  A combination of right-angle prisms that ensures the image is the right way up for viewing. The use of prisms also shortens the distance between the objective and eyepiece lenses, reducing the size and weight of the binoculars.
  • SUPER SPECTRA MULTICOATING – Extremely thin layers of chemicals applied to the surfaces of selected lenses and prisms to reduce unwanted reflections. This improves image sharpness, contrast and colour balance.
