CANON Binoculars & IDAS Filters

CANON 10x42L is my most favorite binocular. Optics is very good and image stabilizer performs very well too. I can’t go back to non IS binoculars. Only drawback is heavy. But I understand the weight tells that CANON made this seriously without compromising.

And thanks CANON designers. They added filter threads in front.


Basically it allows to set any 52mm filters. Nighttime, it’s good match with IDAS proprietary LPS filters. LPS-D1 is most practical in my experiences. LPS-V4 looks a bit too dark. LPS makes background of FOV darker.


And daytime, set IDAS 52mm solar filters.

Also as mentioned several times here, I highly recommend magnet filter holders for quick release solution. Manfrotto seems to have purchased the startup company who originally released this nice item.
