Stabilized binoculars are equipped with image-stabilizing mechanism and are made by Canon, Fujinon, Nikon, Carl Zeiss, and Bushnell. Binoculars with higher power tend to produce shaky images and are therefore highly recommended to mount them to a tripod. But when you have to use them when moving, this can be challenging. Stabilized binoculars provide mechanism for decreasing shaky images due to its movements, very convenient for different distinctive applications. They come handy on the ships, boats, airplanes, helicopters, different other vehicles or just when moving by foot. They are also frequently used by amateur astronomers.
These binoculars have a three stabilizing mechanisms:
Binoculars with this mechanism are equipped with gyroscope. You have to use batteries due to high speed motor that drives the mechanism. They are therefore heavier and less compact, so they represent a challenge when carrying.
These binoculars senses change in latitude by a microprocessor and will adjust the angle of the prisms or shift the lens group. They are lighter than Gyro IS but still require additional power (batteries).
Prisms in these binoculars are mechanically suspended. They are lighter than Gyro IS and don’t require additional power.
