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.

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.

Hello: does the product have a maximum frame rate of over 9Hz?
Asked by: Roland
IMAGE BRIGHTNESS BUTTON (E) The Image Brightness (Sun Icon) button can be used to change the digital imaging frame rate and/or LCD backlight level, affecting the viewing brightness. • Pressing the Brightness (Sun icon) button repeatedly will cycle through the available frame rates, beginning with the default frame rate (fastest), until the last (slowest, brightest) frame rate is reached. After that, the next press of the button returns back to the original fastest rate. The default, fastest frame rate in Night Mode is 25fps. Pressing the Brightness button cycles through the other frame rate settings, with the third press returning to the default again: 25fps>15fps>8fps>25fps>etc. • In Day Mode, the default frame rate is 30fps. The frame rate cannot be changed in Day Mode, therefore the Brightness button will have no effect. The display is a color LCD, and images will appear in color in daytime use, or in strong artificial lighting conditions. • Press and hold the Brightness (Sun icon) button for 2 sec to toggle the LCD backlight level between HIGH (default setting) and LOW (50% level). The display will indicate “BACKLIGHT LOW (or HIGH)”. This allows you to quickly make a significant change in viewing brightness, and also provides a greater total range of adjustment, as you can still cycle through the frame rates (by quickly pressing the Brightness button) at both High and Low backlight settings. The LCD backlight level can be toggled between High and Low settings in Day Mode as well (but the frame rate cannot be changed, as it is fixed at 30fps). NOTE: selecting frame rates lower than the default 25fps in Night Mode will provide a brighter image, however the decreased frame rate may cause moving subjects to appear less smooth or stable when viewed.

question

What is the outer diameter of the main lens and the lamp lens? I'd like to put scope covers over them.
Asked by: Anonymous
The (large ) objective lens is 52 mm on the outer diameter and comes with a lens cover. The (small) subjective lense is 38 mm at the eye cup, as previously stated, the eye cup is very flexible, as you'd expect. The illuminator bezel is 35mm.

question

Can you use this camera to view through from your house windows to see what is outside?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes - under some circumstances.If you use the IR light that comes with it, it will reflect off the glass and you will see only glare. If you are in an area where there is a small amount of outdoor light (neighbors, moon, etc.) you do not need to use the IR light. Then it works fine but you have to make sure you have no lights on in your house to reflect in the window also.
