Nikon 16x32 Stabileyes
Vibration reduction [VR] Binocular
Nikon's StabilEyes binocular provides the kind of
stabilization needed for such high magnification. In benign conditions with 7 or
8x binoculars, it is relatively easy to get a large, steady image up close and
personal. But as magnification increases, this becomes a more difficult task.
Eventually the smaller field of view and more pronounced shake of a large optic
can render big binoculars a very frustrating affair.
But no longer. The 16x32 StabilEyes provides 3° of stabilization in every
direction, making them actually useful in such situations as tracking a moving
subject while on a moving platform yourself. They're great for observing from
airplanes, helicopters, boats, etc. And as a completely waterproofed unit, they
can be used effectively anywhere.
56-72mm Interpupillary adjustment range
Rubber armoured, waterproof & fogproof housing
±3° of all-direction motion compensation
Multicoatings on each air-to-glass surface for incredible brightness, resolution
and color rendition
Automatic shut-off after one minute preserves battery life
No need to constantly push a button for stabilization effect
Six hours of battery life with just two 1.5-volt "AA" alkaline batteries
VR Pause feature allows temporary turnoff of stabilization, handy when observing

Nikon user Guide
Three major elements play a vital role in binocular performance — magnification, field of view and brightness. Magnification is often regarded as the most important, but field of view and brightness are also crucial.
Highly effective for the following applications;
For nature study
For watching sports events
From a helicopter
For observing wild animals from a moving vehicle
For fishing or other marine activities
The face of the internal erecting prism shifts direction, thereby redirecting the light beam and stabilizing the image. When there is no vibration and the binoculars are parallel to the line connecting the viewer's eye to the subject being viewed (a), the prism transmits the light straight through. When there is vibration and the binoculars are not properly aligned (b), as long as the prism is not moved the light beam will be transmitted to the viewer's eye. This example illustrates rotation on the horizontal axis. The StabilEyes prisms feature a
gimballed frame controlled by two piezoelectric sensors and two direct drive motors to ensure constant stability.
