QUESTION: HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD PROBLEMS WITH THE RUBBER LIKE COATING BECOMING STICKY?
Yes, it has happened to mine after about 5 years. I have taken pristine care with these, especially because of the price, and I have loved them. Now I can hardly use them because of the sticky, slime effect of the "rubber" coating, or what ever it is.
Me too, after about 4-5 years. Just got a repair estimate from Canon of $353, which is more than I paid for them. In all my correspondence with Canon they "played dumb" about the problem and said it was due to hand lotion etc. I love the binoculars except for the sticky rubber covering. By the way I declined the repair!
Yes. I first noticed mine starting to melt after a year or two, and it has just become worse with time. Before anyone buys these binoculars or anything else with Canon's name on it, read the reviews throughout Amazon and the Internet about the binocular body melting and turning into a gooey mess. It has nothing to do with hairspray, suntan lotion or body oils (besides the fact that I don't use any such lotions or sprays, my Nikon camera hasn't melted, and I handle it a lot more than the binoculars). And for those of you who it hasn't happened to yet, it's just a matter of time. And time for Canon to step up and do the right thing. DON'T BUY CANON.
10 years old, rarely used, always stored in their bag, today I found that the rubber coating is very sticky.
After reading five or six reviews about the coating of these binoculars becoming sticky and gooey I'm very concerned. But it seems interesting that there are multiple letters and comments from as far back as 2002, 2006, 07, 09, etc. and none of these propel mention the gooey coating problem. And there's only a few people who seem to have had the problem. I don't know what to think? I wish I had more information.
No wonder the price drop. I have this same rubberized coating on my old top of the line ASUS "Republic of Gamers'' laptop which "turned" after about 5 years. The entire 'coating' went bad all at the same time, not just at places where it may have been touched, so no way did foreign elements have anything to do with it. Owners should start mailing their "5th year anniversary" complaints, now.
Had my 10x30 for about ten years with no problems ever. In fact today is the first I have heard about this sticky lens problem. I am surprised Canon just turned away by wanting too much to fix the problem. If the problems becomes common Canon likely will want to do something. I have a local Canon repair place about 40miles away. They fixed a broken part on my camera for a nominal charge. I still believe this model and these type binoculars are by far the best for general use.
I've had mine for more than 5 years. Not a hint of stickiness. They have been never left in a hot car,... in the sun. Don't know if that's a factor. I'm delighted with their performance. incidentally, my 10 yo Canon camera is also fine.
The coating on my IS 10x30 is dissolving and comes off on hands and clothing. Almost impossible to use. They never came into contact with sunscreen or any other chemicals. Perhaps Canon has a solution. Is there a solvent that will remove the coating?
I've had a pair of Canon IS 12x36 since 2004 and a pair of 18x50's since 2006. Both are located on a kitchen island and handled exactly the same. The rubber coating on the 12x36 is dissolving and very tacky. The 18x50 is perfect. Ethyl alcohol does not fix the problem. It actually makes it worse. This problem has nothing to do with handling or storage. It's obviously a problem with the rubber formulation used during the time of manufacture.

QUESTION: DO THESE HAVE AN ADJUSTABLE/MANUAL ZOOM FEATURE?
My husband said they do not.
No zoom feature. 10x Bly.
No. Definitely not. I'm not certain what the differing responses are based on; they are definitely 10X only. That said, they are great.
The focus is manual. One eye is focused and then the set is focused for distance. The IS is for image stabilizing which works very well.
fixed 10 power lens / very sharp and clear / but you have to get used to in line viewing/ my wife now has parkinson's, so the anti shaking help's alot.
I think so.
if I remember correctly, it's just focus....no zoom.
yes... they do.... adjustable.
Yes

QUESTION: THE COVERING/SKIN HAS BECOME VERY "STICKY". I MUST HAVE SPILLED SOMETHING ON IT. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
No, you probably didn't spill anything on it. Mine started becoming sticky in one small spot after about a year or two, and it has just spread with time. It has nothing to do with tanning lotions, hairspray or anything else. And it has nothing to do with body oils, for it it did my Nikon camera would have become a gooey mess long before these binoculars did. You can read throughout Amazon and throughout the Internet about this very problem that lots of people have had, and how Canon apparently won't stand behind their products. If you're still in the warranty period, get them services asap.
The only thing I can think of is for you to call Canon and ask someone in their customer service department. Sorry : (
The covering seems to be very durable so just clean with the apropriat cleaner. Don't spray or splash the binos. Put the cleaner on a cloth and go after the guck.
I agree with the previous answers. I would try alcohol or something like 409 in a small corner first. Let the test spot sit overnight and evaluate.
I would agree with Jennifer Lambert on using a mild detergent and soap. I would suggest removing the battery and using a damp cloth or swab (q-tip) only in the area in question. Do not get any wetness near the button, lenses, or where the back pivots.
That has never happened to me. My guess would be to dampen a cloth with mild soap and try it on small surface. If it works, then you can apply it all over. Just be sure that it is damp, not wet, as any moisture that gets inside the binoculars might damage the electronics, and/or blur the optics.
Yes, my rubber covering became sticky and looks melted after a few years. It became so bad that the black rubber was rubbing off on my shirts where the Canons rest against my chest. I think there are many causes. I use them in hot temps and humidity that I experience in Florida. When they sit in my car, they are subject to high temps, so I try to store them in the airconditioning. I also use sunscreen and bug spray, which probably contribute to the problem. I sweat a lot while holding them. I also did a stupid thing. When I cleaned my lenses with eyeglass cleaning pads containing alcohol, I would use the pads to wipe the rubber body of the Canons to clean off the sweat and grime. I think this was a big mistake. But I love these binoculars to death and won't give them up. So here is what I am doing: 1) I bought a liq uid rubber coating called "Plasti Dip" at Lowes. It is designed to dip tools like pliers into and it creates a soft coating for holding the tool. I take a tiny paint brush, and paint the Plasti Dip on the back of the Canons where is rubs against my chest. This has stopped the Canons from staining black rubber marks on my shirt. The Plasti Dip does not stain my shirts. 2) I will never apply any cleaner, other than a slightly damp cloth to the rubber coating, and will try to keep sunscreen and bug spray off the rubber and my hands. 3) I am buying a new pair of Canon 10x30 IS, and will keep the melted rubber pair as a spare to use when I go out in hot/humid weather. I have seen people here recommending cleaning the Canons with alcohol-don't do it.
Sunscreen has something in it that attacks rubber so that's the most likely culprit. ??? I have seen a few comments online about the 'grip rubber' failing on these Canon binos. Just a WAG here but I'd start with a good wipe-down with some rubbing alcohol.
Our cover is fine. A spill sounds very likely and just mild detergent and water might work.

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE DIMENSION OF THIS CAMERA? LENGTH AND WIDTH. THANK YOU.
I am not clear re the question as this item is showing and describing image stabilization binoculars with no camera. This pair of these binoculars I have are 5 inches by 6 inches (no camera).
The length is 6 inches, the width is 5 inches and the height is 2 3/4 inches.
6" long, ~5" wide and 2 1/2" high. These binoculars (not camera) are relatively light in weight, so are not hard to carry around. They are also remarkably bright and sharp, plus the image stabilization works very well. I have owned at least a 8 sets of binoculars and these are by far my favorite.
#Canon_10x30_Review

QUESTION: DO THESE STABILIZE BOTH LENSES? IN OTHER WORDS, ARE THESE JUST A "TWO LENSED MONOCULAR"
Both lenses are stabilized. You can look through either lens alone (as a monocular system) and the field seen is stabilized. In my opinion this is undoubtedly a great product. In the past I have tried to find information on how the system works but haven't been successful. I've had a pair for over five years and love them. No complaints, except I would not describe them as "Ultra-Compact".
I don't know that I understand the question. They are binoculars with electronic image stabilization that actually works quite well. You have the option of unstabilized, or push and hold the button for stabilization. Stabilization stabilizes and removes the jitter from the binocular "picture." This works quite well for distant birds or objects which tend to "jump around" due to hand movement. Also, you didn't ask, but these take standard batteries for the stabilization. Some units take special proprietary batteries that are expensive and difficult to find.
John The stabilizer appears to stabilize both lenses - you see a monocular view, but it is stabilized and it makes a pretty big difference. Hope that's helpful.
As far as I know, both lenses are stabilized. After having used the binoculars for several months the difference is quite clear. It's quite easy to see the difference between looking through the binoculars without stabilization, immediately followed by looking through them with stabilization. The difference is noticeable and significant!
Both lenses are stabilized. When the stabilization is on it is nearly as if the binoculars were mounted on a tripod. We have had a pair of the 18x50 IS canon binoculars for several years, but my wife wanted a smaller, lighter pair. They are great binoculars and many people are amazed when they try them.
If you follow the instructions on how to focus both lens, one at a time, the view is excellent. Once focused it sure seems that both lens and stabilized. The view thru these binoculars is fantastic.
I used them on a trip to Alaska last month. They appear to be a regular binocular lens setup but I have not taken them apart to see. The stabilization works great. Well worth the money
With a normal monocular or binocular, jiggling the device makes the image your eyes see move a lot. The exaggerated movement of the image is due to the jiggling being greatly magnified by the optical magnification, and it gets worse with greater distances to the object being viewed. Even small movements can be distracting. With image stabilization, jiggles and shakes are damped out, and what your eyes see is a stable 'non-jiggly' image. This greatly reduces eye/brain strain, and you can to pick out details that normal lenses do not allow you to enjoy. Highly recommend the image stabilized binoculars!
Both lenses are stabilized. I was blown away by the difference between unpowered and powered-up. Without power, these are nice binoculars with great optics...with the button depressed (stabilization on) they are simply amazing! My brother, an experienced sailor, was truly impressed when he used these binoculars.
#Canon_10x30_IS__Ultra-Compact

QUESTION: HOW MUCH BACKLASH DO YOU SEE? I JUST RECEIVED MY PAIR AND THERE IS AN UNEXPECTED AMOUNT... MORE THAN 5 DEGREES OF PLAY.
I can't say I've noticed a significant amount of backlash. I use my pair for sailing mostly and occasionally for bird watching, and I've been quite please with their performance.
I am not sure what you are referring to. I did not notice anything special in using them. Good luck. GPS
I'm not sure what you mean by backlash. Do you mean play in the focusing knob? If so, I've noticed none in any of the units that I have owned.
#Canon_10x30

QUESTION: HOW WELL THESE WORK FOR PEOPLE WHO WEAR GLASSES?
I wear glasses, thick ones, -14 diopters, and cannot focus binox without my glasses. I love my 10x30 IS. They have plenty of eye relief, and you can fold the rubber eye cups down. (I wonder if Mr. Petree folds his eye cups down?) I've been folding them down and back up for nine years, and the eye cups are still in good shape. The whole pair is in good shape, and I've carried these all over the world. You can buy better optics, but these optics with the IS feature works better for me than Swarovskis without IS.
I wear various progressive lenses and have had no problems using the binoculars. The eye cups are soft and deep enough for me.
I wear glasses all the time and do not take them off. They work fine, you may want to fold the rubber eye pieces back to increase field of view, but these are the best thing since sliced bread :)
Like many binoculars, these guys have fold-over eye cups that allow one to modify the distance to the eye and are designed to work with glasses. I occasionally use them in conjunction with sunglasses and it works great. I don't think they are much better (or worse) than most other brands of binoculars in this regard. As an aside, I'm a fanatical birder and I use them daily. Love 'em! However, as I mentioned in my review, many birders find them "strange" because they feel different than other binoculars. Hope that helps!
I wear glasses and have had no problem, make sure the rubber eyepiece is folded back
The Canon IS 10x30 have an eye relief that is considered adequate for use with glasses: http://www.cloudynights.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/3822179/Main/3814702
They seem fine
I and a friend have found that one should remove the glasses. The problem is that the glasses hold the eye piece too far away so your eye is past the exit pupil and therefore the field of view is very small. The image is extreamly sharp, the focus is easy and very smooth and fits your index finger and the next finger lies right over the IS button. The IS is astonishing.
My husband wears glasses and usually takes his glasses off for viewing through the binoculars. We both love the stabilization!
My husband wears glasses and takes them off for viewing through the binoculars. He totally loves the stabilization!

QUESTION: DOES THIS PRICE INCLUDE THE CASE AND NECK STRAP?
It did for mine.
The case is a nice soft case bag. I do not use it. Strap, yes. I really like the binos. It takes about two seconds for the image to stabelize. Very dramatic improvement.
Mine did, many years ago. I am not sure about the one we purchased earlier this year as a gift.
a month ago, mine included a soft zippered case & a neck strap
Yes. A basic case and neck strap are included.
Yes. You will be very pleased with these optics. The clarity is phenomenal.
#Canon_10x30_Review

QUESTION: WILL THESE WORK FOR CAR RACING?
Yes, I believe they will. We live on a large lake, often viewing boats, wild birds, etc. from a distance. Although not featherweight, these binoculars are light enough to use for live sporting events like football games where seats are considerable distance from the action. The stabilizer button is amazing!
I've only used these binoculars to watch college football games. They worked beautifully. My guess is you would enjoy them at the races, but I don't have any first hand experience to base that on.
Don't see any reason why not. They have been perfect for everything I have used them for. The image stabilization is awesome!
Yes, in both cases, whether you are in the car racing or observing a racing car from another location.
Sure! The are idea for birdwatch or hunting. These have the lowest magnification of the series, so they are ideal for targets from 25 feet to about 300 yards. They are light enough that you can hold them for a long time, but there is no tripod mount. These are idea for hunters who sit in a stand and have limited range and visibility, for boating, or enjoying wildlife. I used them for celestial viewing, as well, because the lens are so clear you can easily make out dozes of stars that you can't see with the naked eye. I watched the International Space Station and the Shuttle many times with them. The stabilizers really work, although they would be worth the price with out the stabilizer. The lens are magnificent and you only have to compare them to a cheap pair of binocular or a telescope to see the differences. Chea p lens have a lot of flares, glare, and rainbows streaks caused by light coming it a different speeds - the classic problem with a prism. Coating the lens and using the right combination of lens reduces that glare and color blurring, resulting in sharp, clear, crisp images. I wish they had a tiny camera built in, because I've rediscovered everything in my own environment. I recently looked up at what I though was a vulture, only to find it had white wings, a white cap, and gold talons of an American Eagle with a fish in it's claws! That's the kinds of differences you'll be rewarded with.

QUESTION: DO THEY COME WITH A CASE? PRODUCT DETAILS DO NOT INDICATE.
soft case
Hi Stacy, Yes, they do come with a case. It is a "soft" case that they slide into and then it can be closed with a zipper at the top. It's actually quite nice...and has a neck strap as well. We have been VERY satisfied with these binoculars...the image stabilization is amazing. Good luck!
Yes, mine included a soft case
It does come with a felt lined soft case. It does have a shoulder strap so it is easy to carry them around.
#Canon_10x30

QUESTION: DO THESE HAVE A TRIPOD CONNECTION?
no, but honestly that is the whole reason behind the gyro stabilization, you don't need a tripod.
Agree with the below. There is no tripod connection, but the whole point is that you don't need one--and you really don't need one. If you were to use a tripod, then don't get these binoculars--spend the money on larger aperture binocs. However--I much prefer these 10x30 IS to anything on a tripod--they are as grab 'n go as you can get!
If you looked through these binoculars outdoors you would not need to ask this question. When you push the button the image jumps to STEADY and stays that way even if you are standing up no leading on anything or when the object viewed moves quickly over and over they are easy to follow with blurring the field of view. Although the comparison is not perfect this image stabilization has become common of cameras for the average photographer does not need to use a tripod. This IS system is most of the reason these binoculars are so good and popular. You can go for a walk anywhere like the park or beach and carry these binoculars to see many things you could not without them. Skip the tripod, LOL
No, there is on tripod connection. There is no need since there is image stabilization.
Mine don't
No, they don't. No need though.
No
Nope.....but its great if you're afoot or caught by surprise (which is not unusual in nature)
No, I do not.
No, I do not.
#IS__Ultra-Compact

QUESTION: DO THESE BINOCULARS COME WITH A CASE AND NECK STRAP?
I'll try to remember.... There is a case. It is good quality and zips up tight. There is a neck strap on the case but not on the binoculars. There are loops on the binoculars for a neck strap. I don't remember if the strap can be removed from the case (and put on the binoculars). Biggest disappointment is that there are no lens caps.
Yes. Very nice in both cases. Dan T
Yes there is a small strap but good strap for binoculars. Case is nice softly padded
#Canon_10x30_Review

QUESTION: DO YOU HAVE TO CONTINUE TO HOLD DOWN THE STABILIZER BUTTON OR CAN YOU PUSH AND RELEASE AND HAVE IT CONTINUE TO WORK?
You have to hold it down.
You have to hold it done
You view as with normal binoculars and when you need the stabilization you hold down the button. It works great. You'll be looking at a distant sign that you can't read, or a bird you can't quite make out as the binos move. You push the button and the whole picture stops moving and you can pick out the smallest detail. It's "push to activate, release to deactivate".
You have to continue to hold, but it isn't inconvenient. You don't have to remember to turn off the IS.
Hold down the entire time you want to use it.
You have to hold the button down.
You have to continue to hold down the stabilizer button, otherwise you may forget to turn it off and drain the battery. Holding the button down is very easy to do. Side Note: I wish I'd purchased the 8x25 model instead of this one (10x30) because, for me, 10x magnification is too much, sometimes (and the 8x costs less).
I've had my binocs for nine months. The stabilizer quit working. I have barely used them, they have never been outside. If the batteries are dead, how would the binocs act? I get jumpiness when I hold the stabilizer button and it sounds like film spinning. If I hold it down it makes the focus go out of focus. Does anyone know how long the warranty is?
#Canon_10x30_IS__Ultra-Compact

QUESTION: I FOUND THIS ITEM ON AMAZON BY SEARCHING "BINOCULARS WITH CAMERA". THE DETAIL DESCRIPTION HAS NO MENTION OF ANY CAMERA. IS THERE A CAMERA FUNCTION?
There is no camera in these binoculars.
No camera.
No, there is no integrated camera function, but the IS and optics are great.
No, there is no camera. These are stabilized binoculars.
No. They are image stabilizing only. Great unit though.
#Canon_10x30

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE OPTICAL ZOOM NUMBERS
The 10 is the magnification number - that means that what you're looking at seems 10 times bigger. Or stated another way, like you're 10 times closer to whatever you're looking at. The 30 means that the light-collecting lens, the one in the front, is 30 millimeters (3 cm, or about 1.2 inches across) -roughly speaking, the larger this number, the more light the binoculars can gather, with the result that you can see more detail in low light situations, such as dawn, dusk, or night. The most important feature of these "stabilized" binoculars is that they remove the vibration when looking at a distant object, allowing you to see the details of whatever you're looking at much more clearly than with non-stabized binoculars.
It is a 10X30 binocular, there is no zoom function. Hope that answers your question.
This Binocular does not have a "zoom" lens feature. It is a fixed (obviously focusable) 10 Power binocular. It does have very good lens and the IS (image stabilization) is an excellent feature for stable vision at that power.
There is no zoom, optical or digital. They are 10x with image stabilization.
Ambiguous question, What optical zoom number? No zoom feature in canon 10 x30 IS. Definition of optical zoom? Ability to control magnification.
#IS__Ultra-Compact

QUESTION: DO THE BINOCULARS COME WITH A CASE?
Yes - a soft case
Mine came with a soft case with neck strap and lens covers. There is also a neck strap included with the binoculars themselves.
Yes, we wondered that too.
Yes, a soft case, non-padded.
This binocular comes with a soft vinyl type of bag which also has a strap in addition to the one on the binocular. There is no "HARD" case however!
#Canon_10x30_Review

QUESTION: COULDN'T I GET THE SAME EFFECT USING A 30 X OPTICAL ZOOM CANON CAMERA WITH OPTICAL STABILIZATION??
From my understanding the higher the power the less effective the stabilization will be. 20 power is about the max to it's effectiveness from the people I asked before I even bought mine. I've never tried it though and don't know if they even put one in a higher power.
Marty. I thought the same thing when I purchased a new Camera with 30X Optical Magnification + Stabilization. The system used in the Binoculars in nothing like what you get in the camera. To make use of it in the Camera you must have it on a Tripod. It is slow to "catch" the image. If you have the time to set the whole thing up you can get a nice photo. If you are looking to be able to simply point something towards a distant object and immediately be able to see it in a stabilized form you are going to need to purchase Binoculars specifically made for this purpose. Good luck. --- Harry
#Canon_10x30_IS__Ultra-Compact

QUESTION: DID IT COME WITH A CASE?
Yes. A soft zippered case. We really are happy with these binoculars. This stabilization makes all the difference in the world!

Yes it did, a soft vinyl type black case.
Yes. A soft case.
yes, a very nice case with strap
Yes, a soft woven one that is light and durable.
