Fujifilm Techno-Stabi™ Series and StabiScope™ Series Demonstrate Image-Stabilization for Vibration-Free Viewing


Valhalla, N.Y., January 9, 2012 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Optical Devices Division will showcase its two series of advanced binoculars at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, from January 10-13 – the Techno-StabiTM Series and StabiScopeTM Series. Both are known for their excellent image-stabilization for vibration-free viewing, and feature FUJINON lenses.

The Techno-StabiTM Series, featuring the TS 1440 and TS 1232 models, are 100 percent waterproof, high-power binoculars. Most vibrations can be corrected for, whether large or small (at +/- 5° per specifications). Built to be waterproof and easy to handle, these binoculars are being used for a wide variety of purposes, most especially by federal and local law enforcement agencies, as well as for marine sports and safaris. Even at 14x magnification, the Techno-Stabi 14x40 provides a steady view of moving objects, even when sighted from a bouncing boat. Two direct drive motors controlled by piezo vibration sensors stabilize the optics which compensate for hand tremor, as well as for the motion of a boat, airplane, or helicopter. This allows light weight (45.5 oz.) and low power consumption from the 4 AA batteries (included). These amazing, award-winning waterproof binoculars with FUJINON lenses come with a floating strap that allows the binoculars to float when dropped in water, and a Pelican waterproof case for the TS 1440.

The StabiscopeTM Series, including the S1240 and S1640 models, are also image-stabilizing binoculars, but these are highly advanced internal gyro-stabilized binoculars. Pioneering the concept of a high powered binocular with an internal gyro stabilizing system, Fujifilm stabilized the optics inside the binocular, not the entire unit. Just as a gimbaled lamp or compass stays level in rocky seas, so do the internal workings of the Stabiscope. Used for measuring and monitoring tasks by professionals, most especially by federal sea and air law enforcement and space agencies, as well as in such fields as fishing industry and mountain rescue, the 100% waterproof Stabiscope with FUJINON lenses locks onto your target giving you a stable field of vision, whether on rough seas or rocky ground surface. Available in two magnifications (12x or 16x), the Stabiscope operates on either the supplied DC regulator, or 4 AA batteries. It comes with a neck strap, hand strap, heavy duty carrying and storage case, and operating manual.

“Fujifilm has been a pioneer in the binoculars industry, putting more than thirty years of research and innovation into the products we offer today,” said Bipin Patel, sales assistant, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Optical Devices Division. “Visitors to our booth will be able to compare our products with others, and will see first-hand that our quality and effectiveness are the same or even better than our competitors’, and much more affordable.”
