Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd. (Fujifilm) was founded in 1934 with the mission of undertaking the production of photographic film in Japan. Since those embryonic days of corporate development, they have persevered and developed a myriad of technological innovations for the optics and imaging industries worldwide.
The Fujifilm S1240 D/N Stabiscope is both a day and night vision binocular. The eyepieces are easily interchanged so that your day time 12x40 binocular can quickly morph into a serious NVD with amazing image intensifying capabilities. The astounding abilities of this binocular do not stop here, there is also a state of the art gyroscopic image stabilization system built into this wondrous optical device. This image stabilization system delivers rock steady viewing under all conditions, in both the day and night time binocular configuration. When a successfully completed mission is your goal, the S1240 D/N Stabiscope helps you get the job done.
PLEASE NOTE: There are many variables which influence the distance one sees with night vision devices-amongst them the object's size, the level of detail being sought and the observation conditions. Night vision devices detect much further under a full moon and clear skies than they will under a new moon and cloudy skies. Many different formulas are used to determine the statistic of maximum viewing range and this varies by manufacturer, so ultimately the generation of the intensifier tube is much more relevant than any quoted statistic when determining the maximum viewing range.
All night vision devices sold by B&H have mechanisms in place to protect the intensifier tube from a sudden burst of bright light, but this does not mean that bright light doesn't damage the device. Bright light in any form is not good for the longevity and performance of image intensifier tubes.
