Advantages: Clear pictures, water proof, fog proof, mold proof, Light weight
Disadvantages: May take a while to get used to using

Ever since I was a child I have loved binoculars. There is something childlike about them. I love the way you can zoom into something far away and see it as though it is close up. It's like having a toy that you love playing with. However, my childhood bi ... Read review

Canon 12x36 IS II Image Stabilising Binoculars: Awesome
Review of Canon 12X36 IS II by JDavidJ

Canon Image Stabilising Binos: 12x30 Image Stabilising binoculars. For general hand-held use 10 x magnification is about right, because the natural movement of the observer is emphasised by the instrument, and things can get shaky, especially on a windy ... Read review
