Binoculars
“I got hooked on birding years ago when I observed my first
kingfishers in France. Since then, I’ve received a degree in
Biology and Environmental Education and gone to work for a
bird research institute. My travels take me around the world in
search of the most exquisite wildlife.
I’ve documented penguins in New Zealand, flamingos in
Kenya and eagles in Iran. That kind of fieldwork always has
its challenges. Different environments, different demands.
One thing that’s always the same are the Canon binoculars
by my side.
I choose to work with the 10x42L IS WP. What’s truly
remarkable about these binoculars is how the image stays
still even when I don’t. The optical Image Stabiliser uses a
microprocessor to outwit my own shaky hands, which is a
real boon in the early morning cold.
And when Mother Nature tries to send me home, I can still
keep at it. A little rain never bothers me or my binoculars. The
WP stands for waterproof. So I can stand up to mist, rain, surf
spray – whatever it takes to get the job done.

has taken him around the world and when he travels, he travels with Canon.

Going the distance
With Canon, I have a professional advantage. They make some
of the best camera lenses in the world – and the same optics
and engineering go into their binoculars. I know by choosing
Canon I’ll always be ahead.
It takes a lot of time and effort to get to a place like Oman or
Ecuador. When I get there and get in position, I need to know
that I can count on my equipment. Canon goes the distance
and has never let me down.”

some of the lens elements.
WATERPROOF
Canon binoculars with the WP code have protection to the JIS Level 7
standard. This means they are fully protected against the effects of
temporary immersion in water, making them ideal for marine use
and serious outdoor adventure. (JIS Level 7 requires that products
