    16x and steady views. Sig Zulu6 16x42

    Probably. I still don't think any of these videos are even close to what we see with our eyes when actually using a binocular. I also have my doubts about holding a 20x steady but I have read before by other people that they do it and seem to have no problem. The most I would use hand-held is...

    16x and steady views. Sig Zulu6 16x42

    The explanation is quite simple. When you properly hold a binocular, you have 3 points of contact - your hands and your face. When you have a smartphone attached to it, you simply cannot hold it as steady. The IS will still reduce the skaking but the view through the bino without IS is simply...

    This video is rather unrealistic. That's definitely NOT how a 10x42 works in use when you actually look through it instead of trying to hold a shaky smartphone-camera to the eyepiece :ROFLMAO: while holding the bino with one hand. But I personally would not consider using anything above 12x...

    @[email protected] You're really making me interested in that Zulu6. However, all the good deals seem to be gone. When I did my research back in the day before I bought the Canon 18x50 (which however wasn't bought for birding but for astronomy, so I wanted a larger aperture) the Zulu6 was...

    The Canon IS binos in 15x50, 18x50 and 10x42 have ED glass (Canon calls it "UHD"). The cheaper one's don't.

    Aren't these made by Kamakura in their Chinese factory? It's a slightly confusing situation with all these IS-binos. These 16x42 models are sold by many different brands with only slight design changes. But I think the first 16x42 from Kite was "made in Japan". Since Kamakura is a Japanese...
