Stabilized Optics


Experience cutting-edge technology in binocular image stabilization with the KITE 10x30 and 12x30 APC stabilized binoculars.

While other stabilized binoculars exist, none can match the advancements found in these models.

A crucial distinction lies in the correction angle. Most stabilized binoculars on the market offer a correction angle ranging from 0.5° to 1°, equivalent to a correction of 0.8 to 1.7 meters at a distance of 100 meters. Factors like hand tremors, windy conditions, or even breathlessness after hiking can easily cause instability exceeding these values. The KITE APC stabilized binoculars employ new technology that corrects image stability by 3°—equivalent to 5.3 meters at 100 meters or an impressive 53 meters at 1000 meters. In other words, it provides stability six times greater, ensuring clear images not only from shaky hands but even from a moving car or a boat in rough seas.

This compact and lightweight instrument is not just technologically advanced; it's also packed with intelligent features. Powered by two AA batteries, the most common battery size globally, it ensures 36 hours of continuous operation. To maximize battery life, the KITE APC binoculars come with sensors that automatically activate sleep mode when not in use. The APC function (angle power control) detects positioning; when the instrument is in a vertical position, it sleeps, and when it's in a more horizontal position for viewing, stabilization activates. No button switching, no accidental battery drain. A timer function ensures it completely powers off after 90 minutes, regardless of position. Additionally, a low battery indicator warns in advance when new batteries are required.

The APC stabilized binoculars have an ergonomic design with a 4 cm long focus wheel easily operable with three fingers. Despite its unique appearance, using the APC stabilized is as straightforward as any standard pair of binoculars. The real essence of this instrument lies in its stabilizing capability. Optically, it matches the performance level of the KITE PETREL. However, under any condition of instability—be it from your hands, heavy breathing, windy conditions, etc.—these binoculars surpass the best in the world, revealing details invisible to standard binoculars. Try it to believe it!
