Product Code: APC1030
Most of todays stabilized binoculars offer a correction angle from 0.5° to 1°. In other words, 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 3°, or 5.3 meters at a distance of 100 meters, or 53 meters at 1000 meters. In other words, 6 times more than most rival brands. This will allow perfectly stable images not only from a trembling hand, but even from a driving car or a boat in strong sea.
Compact sized and light - but packed with intelligent features.
The electronics are powered by two AA-batteries, the most common battery size worldwide, and will make sure the instrument runs for 36 hours. But to make sure not a second of those 36 hours is lost, the KITE APC stabilized binoculars are equipped with sensors that will automatically put the electronics to sleep mode when you are not viewing. The APC function (angle power control) detects positioning. When the instrument comes 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 stabilisation kicks in. No switching of buttons, no accidental battery drain. A timer function makes sure it switches off completely after 90 minutes, no matter the position. And a low battery indicator will tell you well in time when new batteries are needed.
Enhance your view through stabilisation.
The KITE APC stabilized 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. 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, etc… these binoculars will outrun the best binoculars in the world, and will give you the image and details invisible to any standard binocular.
