Canon 8X20 IS
Bring the world closer with these compact, easy-to-use, lightweight binoculars perfect for travel, wildlife and spectator sports. With image stabilisation for a super-steady view, they are small enough to accompany you anywhere.

Bring the world closer on the move
With superb sharpness and great contrast from superior Canon optics, these image stabilised binoculars keep your vision steady while a lightweight design and comfortable handling means you can use them all day long for travel, wildlife and spectator sports

Portable, steady and compact
Compact and weighing only 420g, these binoculars are the lightest in the Canon image stabilised range with 8x magnification providing useful power for everyday use.

Clarity that you can see
High quality Canon porro prism optics give 8x magnification along with exceptional sharpness and low distortion thanks to the Super Spectra Coating and lead-free glass.

Super-steady Image Stabilizer
Canon's Image Stabilizer technology, the same as used in Canon camera lenses, reduces shake and improves clarity with reduced eye strain when observing over long periods.

Comfortable and convenient
Designed to be lightweight, but with comfortable handling with a large, tactile focusing wheel, adjustable eyepieces and dioptre adjustment to suit individual eyesight requirements.

Power at your fingertips
Powered by a single CR123A battery that provides up to 12 hours of image stabilisation, the binoculars are always ready to work when you need them.
