Explore the night using the ergonomic, compact, and water-resistant Prime DC 5x50 Color Digital Night Vision Monocular from Armasight. This digital night vision device not only allows you to make detailed observations during day or night with its 1.3MP CCD sensor and a color LCD display, but it also features recording capability to a built-in microSDHC memory slot with capacity of up to 16GB or an external recording device or monitor. With its powerful 500mW built-in LED illuminator, it should be able to significantly extend the visibility range and enable you to see and capture night's activities in total darkness. The illuminator also has a focusing lens for changing the beam from a flood to a spot. Compared to NVDs with intensifying tubes, the digital CCD sensor is not bound by a limited lifetime or a vulnerability to bright light. The multi-coated optical system features a 5x objective lens and offers a trade-off between notable magnification, a 12º field of view, and a wider than average 50mm aperture for gathering infrared light. You can also get a good close up with the 3.3' minimum focus. For your convenience, the electronic circuits also provide operational and IR LED status indicators, Automatic Brightness Control, and Bright Source Protection.
The ergonomic and water-resistant body allows you to hold it with one hand while adjusting its controls at the same time. It has rubberized armoring and an attached hand strap in order to provide a non-slip grip. The eyepiece has a diopter adjustment for fine-tuning image sharpness and an eyecup to allow you to get a comfortable fit between the eyepiece and the orbit of your eye. This helps to stabilize viewing and to prevent leakage of light from the LCD display. For long-term observation, improved image stability, or multitasking, this monocular can also be mounted on a 1/4"-20 tripod via a built-in socket. Also included with the device are a lens cloth, carry case, video-out cable, three CR-123 batteries, and a hand strap.
