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.
