From the company that invented gyro-stabilised binoculars - the new Techno-Stabi outperforms and out values the competition. Proven on the space shuttle, Fujinon brings image stabilisation down to earth.
  • Dual piezo-vibration sensors linked to direct drive motors help you lock onto the subjects with rock steady images - even if both you and the subject are in motion.
  • Phase coated roof prisms for sharper, more highly defined images with greater contrast
  • 100% waterproof, fog proof and dry-nitrogen purged
  • 100% multi-coatings for the truest colours, brightest images and freedom from glare
  • Automatic "sensing/response" stabilising system minimises power consumption, extends component operating life

The worlds first binocular with an internal image stabilising system was Fujinon's Stabiscope introduced in 1980. The Fujinon breakthrough was based on stabilising not the entire binocular but just the optics.
Still in production and widely used by the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, DEA, Border Patrol, FBI and others (and standard equipment aboard shuttle flights) the costly Stabiscope achieves a high degree of stabilisation in all planes, with ` 5° of stabilisation freedom.
At a fraction of the price, so does the new Techno-Stabi.
The 14 power Techno-Stabi virtually eliminates the jittery images caused by normal hand tremor as well as the far more profound effects of cyclical and irregular motion found when using binoculars on moving land vehicles, boats, ships, and on rotary as well as fixed-wing aircraft of high-speed gyro motors.

The compact, waterproof Techno-Stabi relies on two direct drive motors, each controlled by its own piezo vibration sensor - one for horizontal control and one for vertical control. The result is instant image stabilisation with minimum power consumption.

You can pan to find and follow targets even when you and they are in motion and still see a sharp steady image. For outstanding optical performance Techno-Stabi optics are fully coated for maximum light transmission and brightness; the roof prisms are phase coated to deliver superb clarity and resolution.

For use anywhere, the operating temperature range is -5°C to 50°C (23°F to 122°F). The Techno- Stabi comes complete with a hand strap that can be attached to either side, plus flotation neck strap, case, and a colour changing (green to a red) battery condition LED indicator. It operates on 4 AA batteries or a 12-32 VDC external power source (optional accessory).
