The much-anticipated 10×42 L IS WP is the first waterproof binocular to incorporate Canon’s exclusive Image Stabilizer technology for steady, shake-free viewing. The high quality L series optics, featuring 2 Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) lens elements (on each side), deliver excellent correction for chromatic aberration.
With a large lens diameter and a 4.2mm exit pupil diameter, this binocular provides an exceptionally bright view, even in low-light conditions. The 10×42 L IS WP binocular offers both the desired brightness and excellent waterproof capabilities, making it ideal for a host of activities including marine use, stargazing and wildlife observation – just to name a few.
The Canon 10×42 L IS WP uses AA batteries to operate its stabilisation system, and can use either traditional alkaline, NiMh, or lithium versions. It is highly recommended to use lithium whenever conditions are terribly cold, as it greatly increases the battery life at those times. In conditions below 20°F(-7°C), normal alkaline batteries will provide only a tiny fraction of the operating time that you could expect from lithium power.
Another great feature is that the 10×42 L 52mm filter threads on the objective lenses can be used for polarizers and telephoto lens hoods to increase contrast in bright light.
