An image stabilizing binocular, designed specifically to give hunters, outdoor enthusiasts and law enforcement personnel an ultra steady view, no matter what the conditions. Nikon's StabilEyes is a 12X32 roof prism binocular that eliminates the effect of common sources of vibration.
The heart of Nikon's StabilEyes is a battery powered system of gimbaled servos that are actuated when the unit is powered up. Unlike many other stabilized products, StabilEyes is optimized as a binocular. It is a roof prism design that incorporates precisely cut and polished lenses and prisms.
All optical glass elements are treated with multiple layers of anti-reflective compounds for true color rendition, superior detail resolution, and maximum light transmission. Additionally, prisms are phase correction coated for the utmost in sharpness and clarity. A special "VR Pause" mode keeps the image stabilized for long periods of time and is very useful for long term viewing.
The Nikon StabilEyes is a central focus design with an adjustable diopter. It has an exit pupil of 2.7mm, a 60 degree apparent angle of view, and a field of view of 261' at 1,000 yards. Eye relief is 15mm, very long in consideration of its 12 power magnification, and it is fully waterproof, fogproof and shockproof.
StabilEyes measures 7.0" x 5.6" x 3.1" and weighs 38.8 ounces without batteries. It is ergonomically designed with a han d strap and integral finger grooves to reduce user fatigue and aid in operation. StabilEyes is powered by four AA batteries and has a battery power display that blinks when battery power is getting low.

Used to watch winter waterfowl at a great distance. VR really works to help keep a steady image. Used at college basketball game and was very impressed. Lens covers for rear do not fit well. No lens protection on front of lens.
Even without stabilization activated the weight gives less wobble. Optics are superb. Great for distances. All controls can be activated wearing gloves. Best for people with hands larger than mine. They're a little clunky, strap hangers could be better balanced.
