BINO APC STABILIZED 42

Stabilized

REVOLUTION IS HERE

STABILIZATION AS NEVER SEEN BEFORE

The innovative APC 42 redefines your experience in nature observation. Just as light and just as bright as conventional 42mm roof prism binoculars, but stable. And not the kind of stability you may have experienced before…  but an entirely new level of stability. Observe in the strongest winds, Observe as long as you like. See details as if you are watching a film. Start watching while you are still out of breath from that long walk, and enjoy highest magnifications without the slightest image vibration. But most important of all… Let yourself be amazed by the things you see, that are invisible with even the best standard binoculars.

The stabilized binoculars are equipped with KITE’s APC system (angle power control). Without having to switch the button, it will put the stabilizing electronics to sleep mode when the instrument is in rest position (hanging from the neck) , and automatically activate the unit when you start observing again. This results in a huge increase of battery life and comfort of use.

120 Hour battery life with APC power saving

The APC 42 binocular has 2 battery boxes. Each battery box holds 2 standard AA bateries. One battery box contains 2 functional AA batteries that will run for 60 hours. The other box containes 2 spare AA batteries. After the first 60 hours, simply switch be batteries and continue for another 60 hours.  Intelligent features such as the KITE APC system (angle power control) will put the stabilizing electronics in sleep mode when the instrument is in rest position (hanging from the neck) , and automatically activate the unit when you start observing again. This results in a huge increase of battery life and usage comfort. And regardless of its position (rest or active), after 90 mintues the instrument will automatically switch off for energy saving.

2° correction angle

The stabilisation capacity of the APC 42 goes beyond the suppression of image vibrations caused by wind or hand trembling. Its stabilisation capacity is 2x to 3x larger than that of other consumer stabilisers binoculars. APC stabilized binoculars have a millitary grade capacity stabilisation system that allows stable viewing from driving vehicles, boats, aircrafts and other unstable platforms.  

Waterproof and gas filled.

The APC 42 is fully waterproof. The optical system and electronics are sealed to result in an IPX 7 waterproof rating. It can handle any kind of rain shower and can even be submerged to 1 meter depth for a maximum of 30 minutes.  The system is nitrogen gas filled, to prevent internal fogging.

"De toekomst nu"

Guy Opdorp

Dit is de droom van elke vogelaar... natuurliefhebber! Nog nooit kon ik vogels op deze manier observeren zonder telescoop... de x16 vergroting zonder enige trilling vanuit de hand hou je niet voor mogelijk, maar toch is het realiteit geworden. Als standaard kijker een x12 vergroting in het veld opent een nieuwe wereld in het observeren. Ik zie meer detail, het is rustig voor de ogen, het weegt amper, hangt goed gebalanceerd rond de nek en werkt vlekkeloos. Na even aanpassen aan de grip, het stabiliseren van het beeld besef je wat je in handen hebt... de toekomst van het verre-kijken! De beeldkwaliteit evenaart moeiteloos de al zo goede KITE IBIS op gebied van scherpte, diffractie en chromatische aberatie... waarbij de stabilisatie de beste kijkers inderdaad moeiteloos achter zich laat! Wat een topproduct! Ik ben vol verwachting voor de toekomst... x20..... x25 uit de hand???

"Blij verrast door deze stabilized"

Patrick Versonnen

Hoge verwachting ingelost door de APC 12x42. Het beeld blijft effectief stabiel en buitengewoon scherp. Determinatie accuraat tot op behoorlijke afstand. Voor mij persoonlijk ergonomisch win-situatie, gedaan met lange wandelingen met telescoop op de schouder..deze kijker is een ideale consensus tussen lang stappen en scherp waarnemen, zowel ver, maar ook in Struweel en bosbiotopen..
