Most high-powered binoculars are impossible to keep still when focussing on a distant object. Fujinon's new Techno-Stabi marine binoculars keep images steady when the user is in motion, thanks to stabilising prisms which deliver real-time response and use less power than high-speed gyro systems like its predecessor the Stabiscope, the original gyrostabilized binocular used by NASA on Shuttle missions. Compact and weighing just 1.23 kg, they are waterproof, include a flotation strap and are powered by AA batteries or an optional AC/DC converter for 12v power. Priced at AUS$3400, they are available at York Optical. Phone Brisbane 32522061, Melbourne 96543938, Sydney 92111606 or visit yorkoptical.com.au.
