    Kite Optics APC Stabilized 16×42 Binocular

    Class leading image stabilisation binoculars

    • 16 x 42 Size
    • 120 hours battery life
    • Automatic power on and off
    • 2 degree, military grade correction perfect for use from moving vehicles, boats or other unstable platforms

    Image stabilization binoculars for stable, detailed views.

    The innovative Kite Optics APC 42 16 x 42 binoculars brought to you by BINTEL redefines nature viewing.

    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 the 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.

    2° Correction Angle

    The stabilization capacity of the Kite Optics 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.

    Kite Optics APC 42 stabilized binoculars have a millitary grade capacity stabilisation system that allows stable viewing from driving vehicles, boats, aircrafts and other unstable platforms.






    Automatic Power on and Off

    You won’t need to remember to turn the image stabilization on or switch it back off.

    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 in battery life and comfort of use.

    120 Hour Battery Life with ACP Power Saving

    The Kite Optics APC 42 binocular has 2 battery boxes. Each battery box holds 2 standard AA batteries. One battery box contains 2 functional AA batteries that will run for 60 hours. The other box holds 2 spare AA batteries. After the first 60 hours, simply switch the 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.

    Waterproof and gas filled – great for boating

    The Kite Optics 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. The combination makes the Kite Optics APC 42 ideal for general boating use, whale watching, or pelagic bird watching trips.
