Buying binoculars has everything to do with what you want to accomplish, as we mentioned in Part 1 of this series. Here are some more choices.
Canon, a trusted name in the optical technology industry, is known for their innovation with the image stabilizer technology used in their binoculars. For those people that have a hard time making their hands stay still, the image stabilizer is perfect for reducing vibrations to help when viewing still images. The technology uses a microcomputer that instantly calculates amounts of vibrations and the Vari-Angle Prism or tilt mechanism, a corrector of movements, then alters the light refraction.
