Bushnell 260140 Overview

  • 1Description

The 4.5x40 Equinox Z Digital Night Vision Monocular from Bushnell uses an infrared (IR)-sensitive CMOS sensor and a micro LCD screen for its night vision capabilities, instead of a conventional intensifier tube. A side rail enables accessories to be attached directly to the monocular. The screen displays color images during the day and black and white when the night vision is on for greater clarity and contrast. Enhancing the optical 4.5x magnification is a digital zoom to provide up to 13.5x total magnification.

Capture video and still images in 640x480 resolution and save them to a user-supplied micro-SD card in the built-in card slot. It supports cards up to 32GB. A switch on the bottom of the monocular lets you quickly switch from video to still images. A USB port lets you transfer the files to a computer without having to remove the card. An RCA video-out port allows the live video feed to be sent to an external monitor or recording device. The status of the monocular is displayed on the LCD screen in the field of view. The icons can be disabled for an unobstructed view. Icons show battery level, zoom factor, IR, and image brightness settings, if a memory card isn't detected, elapsed and remaining recording time, and the number of pictures you can take based on the available memory.

The housing is IPX4-rated for water resistance and has a contoured shape with knurling to provide a secure and comfortable grip for one-handed operation. The rubberized menu buttons are conveniently located at the top within easy reach of your fingertips. There is an accessory rail located on the left side that allows you to attach optional equipment like additional infrared illumination or lasers. This device can be easily used handheld or be mounted to a tripod via a built-in 1/4"-20 socket. Also included are a carry case and lens covers.

    Bushnell 260140 Reviews

    4.5x40 Equinox Z Digital Night Vision Monocular is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best night vision for the price. I tried several different night vision monoculars. This was so much better than the others I tried. I use it mainly for hunting and tried a gen. 1 and two other digital NV monoculars. The other ones were not where near the quality and the range was less than half of this one. I actually have an IR illuminator which I was planning on using with this but there is no need. I can easily see 100+ yards which is what I need for hog hunting. I have used this of about 6 hours in the field so far and I am 100% happy with it's performance and quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great entry gear for nighttime If you're expecting a higher resolution you're not going to get it in this price range, for what it does it has very clear image quality, very little noise, the grayscale types of IR work well to maintain detail. Simple controls but might be worth putting some glow in the dark stickers or paint for seeing useful buttons. The IR lamp is an 850nm (dim red visible to naked eye), it would be nice if it had a built-in 940nm (it is compatible) to not spook nature or people, however you can carry your own separate or if you bought one with the picatinny rail, attach it. I bought the rail to try it on my rifle, I'm still waiting on my rail mount to arrive but the weight isn't too much even with 4xAA batteries, so I'm sure it'll work just fine. Manual focus like any pair of normal monoculars or binoculars. Not particularly useful for indoors because of the minimum distance of the magnification, I had to get the 4.5 because there is no rail option for the 3x.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from would buy again Purchased this item for use while coyote hunting. So far I am extremely impressed with the quality of the image and the distance it covers while still maintaining a clear picture. Overall quality of the product is outstanding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this again I use this for night hunting and it is spot on

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best night vision on the market for the money. Would have bought this just to be able to see at night. Having a Hog problem and them critters prefer sleeping in the day and destroying the country at night. The ability to take photos and video is just icing on the cake. Once you get the feel of the control buttons, it very easy to use. Good optics. Battery life is sufficient if you don't leave it on all night. But, using AA batteries, I don't care if I have to change them out.
