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 stabilised binoculars are equipped with KITE’s APC system (angle power control). Without having to switch the button, it will put the stabilising 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.


The 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 contains 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 minutes the instrument will automatically switch off for energy saving.

Noteplease only use high quality genuine alkaline batteries with this binocular ie, Duracell, Energizer (do not use rechargeable batteries).

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 military grade capacity stabilisation system that allows stable viewing from driving vehicles, boats, aircraft and other unstable platforms.


The APC 12×42 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.
