Night vision hunting is the rage right now and a lot of fun. But would you trade a great Leupold or Nikon scope for a night vision scope?
Get the best of both worlds with Digital Crosshairs night vision clip-onhttp://www.digitalcrosshairs.net
Night vision scopes are great for hog and coyote hunting in the dark of night. Something you can not do with a standard day vision scope. But great scope manufacturers that produce high quality optics are in a class of there own, way better than any night vision device.
If you want the best in day vision scope optics and you also want to hunt at night you choice is clearly a night vision clip-on that will convert your quality optics into a night vision scope on evenings you want to hunt in the dark.
Digital Crosshairs 1000 is a night vision clip-on that attaches to the eye piece of your scope, taking advantage of your scope’s optics while capturing the scope’s field of view in total darkness using digital IR night vision.
This low cost clip-on for just $600 attaches to any scope in less than a minute and without re-zeroing, let’s you enjoy night hunting with the same scope you depend on and love for day shooting.
There are a lot of affordable night vision products on the market today that are pretty good. Unlike traditional expensive intensifier tube or thermal night vision products that are expensive to manufacture, digital night vision is a commodity based product. The primary components of digital night vision are not proprietary at all. Digital night vision is based on standard components:
IR camera board
IR camera board lens
Night vision scope manufacturers do not make these components, they purchase them and integrate them into branded products.
Digital night vision scopes can easily see 100 to 150+ yards in the dark. Even the low end is enough for most hog or coyote hunters.
Digital Crosshairs 1000 is a $600 night vision clip-on product that uses 1000 TVL (television lines) resolution board cameras, quality lenses, and a large 4.3″ LCD targeting system instead of the mini display used by traditional industry leaders. Unlike other clip-on systems, Digital Crosshairs clips onto the eye piece of the scope and takes advantage of the optics. The better the scope, the better the results.
Traditional clip-ons mount to the front of the scope and just use the scope’s optics as a magnifier for the micro display on the end of the clip-on. A quality scope in that case really adds no value like it does with Digital Crosshairs 1000.
A lot more hunters will be enjoying the thrill of night vision hunting when they learn about the new affordable digital night vision products on the market today.
These products are a lot less expensive than the traditional intensifier tube technologies and thermal scopes that have been on the market for years.
Our prediction is that digital night vision will be killing thermal and Gen 3 products popularity. Not many hunters can afford $2,000 to $10,000 for a night vision scope to shoot hogs and coyote 70 to 100 yards away. Makes no sense to spend that kind of money. But $600 or less for a night vision scope that lets you sit in a stand and shoot pray 50 to 150 yards away is a real winner.
One down side of getting a night vision scope is that most people hunt with a family member or hunting buddy. Hunting in the dark of night, if you are a family member or friend not looking through the scope, you can’t see anything. Daytime hunting with friends, everyone in the group can see what the hunter is shooting at. Night hunting is different.
Digital Crosshairs 1000 is a night vision rifle scope clip-on that lets friends and family members see in the dark too. It actually has a rail mounted LCD targeting monitor which enables everyone to look over the shooters shoulder in the dark and watch the action. Now that is fun for everyone.
This picture was taken with Digital Crosshairs 1000 night vision scope clip-on device while hog hunting. You can’t get much clearer than that at any price so don’t let the affordable $600 price fool you.
This product gets 150 to 250 yards visibility at night depending on the quality of your scope.
Actually, do you know any night hunters that are shooting over 100 yards?
Digital night vision is technically based on the IR CMOS board camera used in the build. If you are researching it ask your vendor what board camera they are using.
They may say a branded name but all CMOS cameras are made in China. Digital Crosshairs 1000 uses 1099 IR CMOS camera boards that are 1000 television lines in resolution. They also use an IR illuminator based on the Oslon Black 850nm IR emitter, the most powerfull in the industry. Technical facts like these you should ask of any vendor.
China does not make great innovative products but they do make quality component, like CMOS board cameras, batteries, and displays used by all U.S.A. manufacturers. Your Ford has an LCD made in China.
When looking at digital night vision think of it as the commodity it is becoming today. IR illuminator, CMOS board camera, mini LCD display resolution or in the case of Digital Crosshairs 1000 a 4.3″ rail mounted LCD display are the future of night vision technology for hunting.
A $4000 dollar night vision product and the $600 dollar Digital Crosshairs product should be judged based on components not brand names.
