    Carson NV-250 reviews

    2-4x Aura Plus Night Vision Monocular/Camera is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Night Monocular Miniature in Size Yet So Powerful ! I was eagerly waiting for the Carson Optical AuraPlus NV-250 Digital Night Monocular to come and after two weeks of patient waiting, it finally came, working and in good condition. Thanks to the prompt and good delivery service of B&H PhotoVideo. It was surprisingly small and handy, very lightweight, petite and cute without the bulkiness of either the 8 or 10-inch models, the look and feel could have easily misled it as a toy which children would love to lay their hands on it. The built is smooth and delicate. When turned on, it shows contrastingly clear images in black and white. Whether be it day or night, the picture is there for you, without having to adjust any further settings. Even without turning the Infra-Red on, the picture automatically shows up. All we have to do is to either make the picture brighter, higher resolution or zoom in. The picture is sharp and clear. Picture taken in total darkness late at night looks as if it is only around 5pm in the afternoon. Distance is of no barrier for clarity here. For those who like to carry lightweight and small devices, this might be for you. The cons is that this might be quite a piece of delicate and soft body casing, not suitable for rugged use and the batteries need to be replenished real fast. Need to get ready a handful of batteries at hand if going out for a long night trip. No doubt, above all, it is a marvellous piece of digital technology with one's worth purchasing and embracing it.
