The 5.5x50 Recon 550 Digital NV Monocular from Pulsar is a digital night vision device that records still images and video of the transmitted image. This monocular will capture JPEG photo or record AVI video at up to 640x480 resolution, and all images are recorded to an SD card (not included). The 5.5x optics are well-suited for mid-range tasks requiring moderate magnification while still preserving some situational awareness.
A Weaver rail attached to the Recon 550R housing is meant to accommodate accessories like a long-range IR illuminator or laser aiming device. The NTSC/PAL input-output port enables the transmitted image to be viewed and/or recorded on a remote monitor. Additionally, the monocular's color display can be used to view a video input source. The five-lens eyepiece, manual brightness adjustment wheel, and image recording function make the Recon 550R a useful night vision monocular for low-light surveillance and other nature observation.
