Night Owl Optics NOIGM3X overview

  • 1Description

Night Owl Optics takes pride in providing you with consistent, top quality products. They maintain their position as an industry leader in night vision technology by integrating state-of-the-art concepts and designs into all of their night vision monoculars, binoculars and flip-up goggles.

Night Owl's iGen 20/20 Day and Night Vision Monocular takes the world of night vision to new levels with a new technology, and a stunning form factor. Instead of relying upon ubiquitous intensifier tube technologies, Night Owl has incorporated an extremely sensitive video capture system into the iGen 20/20.

This versatile monocular can be used 24/7 without compromise. When ambient light-levels prohibit clear detailed viewing, simply adjust the variable frame rate to enhance the light-gathering abilities of the monocular. The integral IR illuminator features a smart-circuit that automatically adjusts to accommodate ambient lighting conditions.

The iGen 20/20 features a mid-range level of magnification, making it an excellent choice for outdoor viewing. Its simple yet dynamic form factor offers a secure grip for both right and left handed users, and the controls are easy to locate, intuitive and very accessible.

There are many different variables that affect the distance that one can see with a night vision device, among them the object's size, the level of details being sought from the object and the conditions of observation. 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. No matter what, bright light in any form is not good for the longevity and performance of image intensifier tubes.

    Night Owl Optics NOIGM3X reviews

    iGen 20/20 2.6x Day & Night Vision Monocular is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for quality night vision! This really is comparable to Gen 2 night vision. Once you get used to the controls and focusing the scope, it is quite easy to view things in the dark. I found the white and black color scheme to be the best when it comes to recognizing animals in the dark. Also, you don't have to worry about accidentally pointing the scope at a bright light and ruining the device like some regular night vision. Definitely a good deal if you need to see in low light conditions. One of my friends used it to look up at the sky and could see many more stars and satellites than were visible with the naked eye. You won't be disappointed with this scope.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Technology for Simulated Gen 3 For the price and the image quality this unit is pretty darn good. Defeintily better than anything Gen 2 and comprable to some Gen 3's. You will need the IR in most cases but the ability to adjust the frame rate is an additional bounus. I've not heard back on its operating range from the company so I'm not sure how cold and heat may affect its perfomance. The only thing I see needed is a way to hook a wrist or neck strap to this unit, but since it had a bipod mount this can be remedied with the addition of a camera d-ring for the bipod mount. Included case can be mounted on a belt or other gear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff Dont expect military grade for this price, but its actually well build, has several good features, ease of use, pretty good range and picture quality. I have now used it for a month under different conditions and so far it surpass my expectations. The video output is also a nice feature and function well. The enclosed manual is a lousy print. Better download the electronic version and keep it for reference in your computer, iphone, ipad or whatever pdf reader source you have. I however identified a few minor improvement options: 1. Would be good if iGen could enclose just a normal cheap plastic lens cap for the main lens as well as the IR. The metal pin-hole cap is too complicated to unscrew or add as a standard lens cap if its pitch dark (and where you don't need it), but wanna protect the lens(es) before you put it in your pocket. OK, I found one in my old lens-cap-collection. 2. Its not possible to add a neck strap and since the unit is somewhat heavy to dump in the nearest pocket, such would be convenient too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exellent Night Vision, better than Gen2, good as some Gen3 I use this NV on the Arizona Border doing Civilian Border Watches and it performs very well. I have used Gen 1,2, &3 and I really prefer the Digital. You don't have to worry about bright lights, and the black & white mode shows better detail to me. The auto IR mode works great. In 1/4 moonlight and above you can turn the IR off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! After researching & reading reveiws I must agree that this product does what it is advertised to do.If it were waterproof & had a place to connect a strap I would give it a A++. Seems rugged enough, time will tell. For now way to go Night Owl optics! Box says made in the USA. Can't be it beat for the money....

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value Did quite a bit of research on night vision technology and was quite surprised by the reviews for Night Owl technology. I am very familiar with video cam infra red quality and low light night technology as well as image quality. The iGen 20/20 is superior in all aspects and very easy to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Far better than my Yukon Gen 1 I bought This is so much clearer than my older yukon gen1. The adjustments are easy and the picture is very clear. The best feature is how you can adjust the picture brightness so your vison won't be screwed up after you put the nv down. I am extremely satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for the price! This monocular is quite powerful and has great definition for the price. The illumination was excellent and B&H had the best price available. We utilize the device 24/7.
