My review of the Canon 8×25 IS:
Canon 8×25 Image Stabilized Binoculars are one of the cheapest image stabilizing binoculars by Canon. They come with basic features such as a magnification power of 8x, multicoated lenses for bright images and a design that is convenient to use.
One of the major drawbacks of the Canon 8 x 25 binoculars is that they’re neither waterproof nor dustproof. So you have to take extra care while nature photography; especially during the rains. Another drawback is that they’re not highly resistant to shocks, in other words, you need to handle them with care to ensure their long life.
Canon claims that it’s the lightest and the most affordable 8x binoculars with image stabilization. Without a doubt, the Canon 8×25 fits into these claims effortlessly. However, in order to accommodate all these features in such a small package, Canon had to compromise on the slow motion sensors. Though it’s helpful for image stabilizing, it almost has no correction for slow motion.
The magnification in these binoculars, as compared to others is very small, yet the image stabilization in the 8×25 is not as effective as it is in the 10×30. Likewise, three are many other minor drawbacks that have creeped into the 8×25 design while compressing it to such a small size.
But these binoculars are pretty ok if you need them for a casual viewing experience. Its image quality is pretty impressive as compared to its other features; it forms bright, sharp, clear and vibrant images in almost all kind of light situations.
The cheap price and the low magnification makes them ideal incase you’re not willing to spend too many bucks and if you’re not so into nature photography. All in all, they give a decently good view and make your field trip enjoyable, incase you’re with family and are carrying them just for a decent viewing experience. Their price (unbelievably) is approximately $250 only! So go and get yourself a pair of these, you surely wont regret it! You can buy them from any of the online stores at a reasonable price that includes shipping.
