Canon 10x42L Image Stabilising Water-Proof Binoculars

Protecting Canon's finest quality L-series lenses with a robust, waterproof housing, the 10x42L IS WP binoculars provide unrivalled clarity, and stabilised field scoping performance

  • L-lens quality - the very finest in precision optics 
  • Optical Image Stabiliser
  • Rugged waterproof construction
  • 10x magnification
  • Extremely large 4.2mm exit pupil
  • Anti-fog technology 

Professional Power

The 10x42L IS WP binoculars are the first from Canon to be engraved with the hallowed red L-series ring: a mark until now reserved for Canon's finest professional photographic lenses; the pinnacle of Canon's heritage in precision optics design and manufacture. 

Raising optical performance standards

These binoculars feature 2 Ultra-low Dispersion glass (UD) lens elements on each side. Developed by Canon, these elements are effective in eliminating chromatic aberration - the rainbow-like distortion that affects lesser quality binoculars. The result is super bright, high contrast, 10x magnification viewing clarity.

Stay Steady 

To suppress vibrations caused by viewing hand-held, on moving vehicles or boats, the 10x42L IS WP binoculars include Canon's Vari-Angle Prism (VAP) Image Stabiliser (IS). Tiny gyros detect the slightest movements, while a microprocessor controls a special prism to correct the refraction angle of incoming light.


Designed to survive the toughest outdoor conditions, the 10x42L IS WP binoculars are fully waterproof. The design incorporates a distinctive easy-grip for wet conditions, and a robust rubber coating to withstand all your adventures.


To prevent fogging on internal lens elements caused by the ingress of moisture, all exterior surfaces are treated with a special metallic coating. This works in concert with special O-rings and use of waterproof adhesives on all external contact points to prevent water molecules permeating the outside casing.

Precision Optics

All the lens element surfaces are treated with Canon's Super Spectra coatings. These ensure vivid high contrast images with accurate colour balance by eliminating unwanted internal reflections that ghosting' (secondary images) and flare (low contrast, washed out images). The exceptionally large 4.2mm exit pupil allows a bright field of view in low light conditions.


Every aspect of the 10x42L IS WP binoculars is designed around viewing comfort. A wide 65° angle of view gets plenty of horizon into view, while a 16mm Long Eye Relief minimises vignetting that can affect prescription glasses wearers. A correction lock prevents unintentional dioptric correction errors, and the extending eye-cups can be rotated for customised fitting.

"Excellent quality binoculars! I looked at the Supermoon the other day and the detail was just awesome. Then I used the image stabiliser and Wow! I just wouldn't have any other binoculars."

"I am absolutely delighted with my Canon IS binoculars purchased from Castle Cameras. I bought them primarily for Astronomy, but as soon as we got them we were able to enjoy glorious views of the Isle of Wight from our home nearly 60 miles away in Portslade! (That day was SO clear I was inspired to get my telescope out and view Saturn in the evening, which was glorious). Castle's price was excellent and tipped the balance for me to buy these excellent (but expensive) bins. Absolutely no regrets. Their service was also exemplary; - fast, efficient and helpful. I loved the way that they check with the Courier for you to tell you the exact delivery slot. Great peace of mind conferred from lovely people to talk to. Certainly 5 stars from me (and I'm not talking astronomy now)!"

"Age and failing eyesight / wearing glasses was leading to problematic viewing with my old Nikon zoom bins so I decided to treat myself to hopefully something with clearer vison that would allow me use without removing my eye glasses. Took a leap of faith with these very expensive Canon top of the range binoculars. Wow - have to say worth every single penny - perfect clear and bright vision; it was like getting my younger eyesight back! Easy to setup and use - image stablising not really required when viewing from a stable platform, but fantastic on when using from a moving platform (boat or back of a landrover etc.). Choose Castle Cameras in preference to Amazon to keep small businesses alive, glad I did - top drawer fast service and competitive pricing. Glad I made the jump to Canon, the binoculars go with me on every trip. "

"These are quite astonishing bins. Just looking through them, without the IS turned on, the view is bright, sharp, and stays like that right to the edge of the field. Certainly they're as good optically as good as my Swarovski EL bins that they replaced. Turn the IS on, and the view is amazing, with extraordinary levels of detail. On the downside, they're very heavy (around a kilo), and the ergonomics are pretty daft - I've been using them quite a bit, but I still struggle to find the button to turn the IS on (tip to Canon, when you redesign them, make the focus knob function as the IS switch). However, the view is so good that the shortcomings are worth putting up with. Service and price from Castle Cameras were both excellent."
