From the Manufacturer
This is the world's first dual-mode professional-grade binocular that stabilizes for both shake and roll on land and water. Nikon's new StabilEyes provides the power, razor-sharp resolution, and rock-steady hold necessary for long-range viewing on land or at sea. Phase-correction coated prisms and fully multicoated lenses provide unparalleled optical capability, while durable, waterproof and fogproof construction make StabilEyes the ultimate optic for virtually any viewing situation, no matter how demanding. Nikon's exclusive Pan & Tilt feature provides unmatched flexibility for the binocular user. Even in wind, after a long climb, from horseback or at sea, StabilEyes gives you steadiness you can depend on. Nikon offers 5-degree vibration compensation and correction angle, virtually 7x the range of our competitors.
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. and shockproof.
What do the numbers mean?
15x50? 8x25? The two numbers used to describe any pair of binoculars are their magnification — 8x, 12x, 15x and so on — and the diameter of their objective lenses — 25mm, 36mm, 50mm, and so on. The larger the first number is, the larger the object will appear to be in the objective lens. For instance, if you use a 10x lens and look at an object that is 100 yards away, it appears to be the same size as an object located just 10 yards away. The second number, the size of the objective lens, is important because the larger the objective lens, the more light it can admit for brighter, more detailed images, and the better suited they will be for lowlight situations.
