Kite Optics 16x42 APC Stabilized Binoculars
The Kite Optics 16x42 APC Stabilized Binoculars now offer amazing image stabilization using their high-technology APC (Angle Power Control) technology. These high-quality optical binoculars with 16x42 performance specs will provide you with glorious well-resolved observations at 16x power, and stable images under the most challenging conditions. The Kite Optics 16x42 APC stabilized binoculars bring you the latest technology in binocular image stabilization, with high angular range correction control for movement. There are other stabilized binoculars on the market, but none of them compare to this. This Kite Optics 16x42 APC Stabilized Binocular offers true military-grade stabilization performance for viewing from moving vehicles, boats, aircraft, etc.
The all-important performance difference is the correction angle. Most of today’s stabilized binoculars offer a correction angle from 0.5° to 1°. That corresponds to a correction of 0.8 to 1.7 meters at a distance of 100 meters. Trembling of the hand, observing on a windy day, or being out of breath after hiking will easily cause image instability that is larger than these values. The KITE APC stabilized binoculars feature a new technology that allows the instrument to correct the image stability by 2°, that's more than conventional stabilization technology. This allows perfectly stable images not only from your trembling hand, but even from a moving driving car or a boat.
This very compact sized and light instrument is also packed with intelligent features. The electronics are powered by two AA-batteries, and will operate the system for 120 hours, including the power from spare AA batteries which are internal to the device. But to make sure not a second is lost, the Kite Optics APC binoculars are equipped with sensors that will automatically put the electronics to sleep mode when you are not viewing. When the instrument is in vertical position, hanging from your neck or standing on a surface, it goes to sleep. From the second it comes to a more horizontal position, when viewing, the stabilization system auto-kicks in. No switching of buttons, no accidental battery drain. A timer function makes sure it switches off completely after 90 minutes. And a low battery indicator will tell you well in advance when new batteries are needed.
The Kite Optics 16x42 APC Stabilized Binocular is ergonomically shaped, and features a 4 cm long focus wheel that can be easily operated with 3 fingers. Although the APC stabilized looks different, it is just as easy to use as any pair of standard binoculars. The essence of this instrument is of course with its stabilizing capability. This model (the KOST1642) offers an amazing 16x magnification spec as well as stabilizing the image. Optically it is on the same performance level as the KITE PETREL, however under any circumstance of instability, whether from your own hands, heavy breathing, windy conditions, a moving car, etc… these binoculars will give you the image and details you want to see and expect from Kite Optics.
Easy to carry, to hold, easy to use, and with beautiful image quality, and with APC Stabilization technology which is 6 times better than most conventional stabilized binos can offer, the Kite Optics 16x42 APC Stabilized Binoculars will amaze and delight you every time you view through them and see what you want with utter clarity. NOTE: This binocular uses a pair of AA batteries plus also a pair of AA as spare power, internally. Batteries are NOT included with this product.
