I like this item, but I don't love it. This as a special use, low resolution digital camera that is super sensitive to infrared light. I mostly agree with the other reviews. What I don't agree with is mostly technical, and would not help you decide to buy, so I will not waste your time with it.With some optical background, I understand the challenge that compact monocular/binoculars have with small field of view. I initially couldn't decide between 4.5x and 6x model. I chose 4.5x, but now wish they made a 2x model that can take photos. Because of the higher magnification and smaller field of view, the practical usability of this item is at least 100 feet or more. The focusing does allow you to see as close as 30 inches, but why did they bother? BTW, the front lens is focusing for the target, and the back ocular lens/eye piece is focusing to compensate for your prescription.PROS: 1)Everything in the description for this item and by other reviewers. 2)Fast shutter speed for photos, so slight movements will not blur still photos (with no optical zoom in daylight or at night with IR on). If you have shaky hands or use the optical zoom, you should use a monopod or tripod.CONS: 1)On/Off switch too close to other buttons. It required 2 seconds to turn off, but that is how long it takes to realize you pushed the wrong button. 2)Eye piece only adjustable for people with perfect or nearsighted vision. Farsighted people will have to wear glasses/contacts. This is an ""oversight"" by the designers. 3)Does not fit well into included vinyl zip case when the oculars are adjusted for most people (distance focused and no Rx compensation). I have to turn the ocular/back lens completely into the scope (3 complete rotations) each time to fit it back into the case. 4)If you use a tripod mounting plate, the TV/Video out cable and the photo/video switch may not be accessible due to it's location near the tripod mount. 5)Unlike a real camera, there is no feature to review photos/video saved on the micro-sd card. You will need another device to see the 640 x 480 jpg files, usually around 200-300 kb in size. 6)Battery cover is spring loaded, somewhat awkward to screw on.MISC: 1)IR illuminator glows dull red when on, so your target may see your red IR glow. 2)The IR illuminator will reflect back, causing glare from windows and leaves/brush near you. You have to turn the IR off, or use this in open space. Think of the IR as a very bright flashlight, but only visible when looking through the scope. 3)The eye piece display seems very bright when your eyes are adapted to the dark, but it's required to see the small internal video display clearly. Our eyes use ""rods"" for night vision, which can not see detail as clearly as the color sensitive ""cones"" that require more light. 4)Front lens has a 42.5mm threading. I was hoping my 43mm wide angle video lens would allow a wider field of view, but obviously it did not fit. 5)Because this is not a pure optical device, the internal video screen resolution in daylight at 4.5x, is only about the same as my 20/20 vision. Digital zoom does not increase resolution, but does make small things up to 3x bigger, so it is helpful but harder to hold the picture steady. 6)While recording video, the IR/color mode and Sensitivity buttons do not work.WISH LIST FOR NEXT VERSION: 1)A slightly larger case that fits, even when both focusing lenses are at the maximum extension. 2)Power button relocated, or software change to give ""Power Off"" warning and require a second press to shut off. 3)Built-in photo/video player, like other digital cameras. 4)Optical/Digital Zoom from 1x to 10 x , or mountable accessory lenses for wide-angle and telescopic lenses like SLR cameras. 5)adjustable Oculars designed for both near and far sighted people.I found it interesting that most of the other reviews are ""Vine Customer Review of Free Product"", not actual purchases. I still agree with most of what they posted. If you find this review helpful, please click ""Yes"" below. Maybe I'll get a free product to review someday! :-)

Huge undocumented feature!

Works as advertised. Excellent at anything less than 50 meters. After that, the picture quality gets grainy, but that it to be expected. The IR light gets dispersed with distance.Huge undocumented feature! I was eating through batteries and then discovered that it can be powered via the mini-USB port. I attached a Limefuel Blast L60 x for $30 and it lasts for hours and hours at the highest settings. Any USB charger should work. Connect the charger to AC and you can run this all night without having to worry about batteries.I've no idea why they don't integrate or advertise this.

Excellent low cost Night Vision device!

�This thing works great for open field night viewing, I use it for locating hogs at my feeders at night. In thick cover or a forested area the onboard light will reflect a lot of light and white out your images. The built in light is more than bright enough, on high, to identify targets at 100 yards at night with no moon. It has 3 NV light levels, high, low and off, and a daytime mode. Even a full moon is not bright enough to view anything at a distance with the light off but in a urban area with street lights it might be. The image quality is pretty good for a $220 night vision monocle. See attached photos and video. I am very impressed and will purchase another. It only weighs 1 1/2 pounds with 4 AA batteries. I use rechargeable batteries and I get a few hours easily.I use a�Fomito Focus F-1 Quick Rapid Shoulder Sling Belt Neck Strap And 2pcs Screw Mount for Camera DSLR SLR DV Black�Shoulder Sling to carry it hands free when I want to walk around when I'm out hunting.I have found that the 4.5x scopes seem to provide the right combination of zoom and field of view at night. the 3x has a much smaller objective (inlet) lens. Too small for good light gathering. The 6x has a 25% larger lens but the lowest zoom is too high for scanning fields for potential targets, much smaller field of view.The onboard light IS visible at night. It casts a red glow if you put your hand in front of it. I wouldn't recommend looking directly at it as it is a high intensity light and can damage your eyes even if it doesn't appear that bright. The hogs and deer that I have observed have never been disturbed by the red glow but a human target may see the light even at a distance.There is a way to use an external pack but the on/off function doesn't work. If you were to plug in a 5v supply via the USB cord the unit comes on and is functional but you can't turn it off unless you pull the cord. Possibly pretty useful for long term viewing or stationary surveillance if mounted to a tripod.To retrieve your images and video plug the unit into your computer and it is seen as a card reader and you can pull the video or photos off easily. You can also remove the card and use your own card reader if you wish.The NV (night vision) video that is attached was take about 100 yards with no moon. There is a secondary light flashing across the screen from another camera but you can see toward the end that when the light is not directly on the hog it is still very identifiable.The NV photo of the deer was taken at about 20 yards. The daytime photos were taken at about 120 yards. The second daytime photo is using the built in digital zoom i believe it was zoomed in to the max (3x). At that zoom level the focus is very touchy.I have an older digital NV scope that I paid 5 times as much for and the image quality is better on the Equinox but it is not as sensitive to light. The digital NV scope is a dedicated NV device, but the Equinox takes photos, video and is half the weight. I am very impressed and will be buying another in the future.

It's Been Fun

This is my first Night Vision, gizmo, the 6x is just that, you can't go to less than 6x so if you expect to view in the woods like what we have here in Michigan don't think this will work at all, now if you want to look out across the hay field at night out to about 275 yards for coyotes this thing rocks, with a moon you don't need the IR light turned on. It's a bit coarse in its resolution so the digital 1-3x (which is 6x + 1-3 power) does help at times on those pesky little things moving around at night.Would I recommend it to a friend, Yes

Effective, with limitations

I've been intrigued by night vision devices for some time now but have resisted purchasing anything until now due to the almost universally poor reviews of traditional Gen 1 devices (as well as the early digital devices). But with the release of the new Equinox Z, I decided to take a chance.Bushnell offers 3 monoculars in its Equinox Z lineup, 3x, 4.5x, and 6x magnification. I chose 3x because I wanted less magnification and a larger field of view for greater peripheral awareness. The 3x device partially delivers on that-the problem is that focusing is slow and laborious, so don't think you can use this while moving around. It's much better suited to stationary use. It should also be noted that the 3x device lacks the video recording feature of its bigger brothers, but 640 x 480 video wasn't that appealing to me anyway and it's $40 cheaper than the 4.5x scope.Other items of note, which are applicable across the entire Equiniox Z lineup:1. This device was much larger than expected. It's not exactly pocketable. The included wrist strap isn't that usefulmaybe a full-on neck strap would have been better. On the other hand, the lens cap is conveniently attached via a lanyard.2. Ergonomics are somewhat awkward. The buttons are too close to the IR illuminator on the right side for a comfortable one handed right hand grip. It feels much more comfortable to operate the buttons with my left hand, but there is a fairly useless rail on the left side that gets in the way.3. When on, the IR illuminator is quite visible to others in low light / darkness. The upside is that it is quite powerful.4. It is actually useable with no IR illumination in some low light conditions (which can't be said of traditional Gen 1 night vision). You have to toggle the sensitivity which reduces the frame rate to 8 fps, but it is useable. Since the frame rate is slow, it's best suited for slow or stationary objects, but that is an excellent capability for a $200 device!5. Light sources tend to flare in the viewfinder, necessitating toggling the sensitivity button, which still results in a contrasty image that sacrifices details in the shadows.6. The viewfinder image is very bright, especially in low light. Using this device will practically blind you in that eye until you can readjust to the dark. I wish there was some way to adjust the brightness setting.7. It takes 4 AA batteries, which is great. I try to stick with electronics that use AA or AAA instead of CR123, so I can use my rechargeable batteries.Also, it must be said that digital night vision devices lack the allure of traditional devices. You don't get the high pitched whine or green tinted image (at least with the Equinox Z). Instead of feeling like Sam Fisher, you feel like you are looking through a sensitive camcorder, which isn't far from the truth! Still, this is a pretty good package for the entry-level price.

Great NV For The Money.

This is a really good product for the money.Here are the things I did not really like though.1)- Don't expect to be able to look out your window on a dark night and see much. On a night without a bright moon you will need the illuminator and it will not work through the window (you will only see the reflection of the bright 'light'). If you step outside and turn on the illuminator - WHOA! It is impressive what you can see.2)- It takes a lot of focusing. If you go from looking at something 40 feet away to something 100 feet away you will need to crank on the lens quite a lot to get the focus right. It is not a fast focus like some of my binoculars either. You have to turn the lens several turns for even short distance changes. It is very awkward to do with one hand so if you are carrying something in the other hand you will probably need to set it down.3)- The view. You are really only looking into a small digital screen inside of the body of the camera. It is not like a viewfinder on a digital camera though where it fills the entire view. It is more like a viewfinder at the end of a toilet paper roll. It is really pretty far away and it gives the effect of looking at a screen at the end of a hallway or something. It does not fill your whole view.Thinks I like:1)- The illuminator is awesome. Works very well even at long distances.2)- Very solid feel. Nice rubberized texture. It feels very durable. I'm not scared to just toss it in the jeep and drive around.3)- The price.4)- Long battery life5)- Ability to record video And images right from the camera.6)- Close up viewing capability. I was worried that you would not be able to see close up things but you can. I focused on things as close as 4-5 feet without problems (lots of focusing though).

Better than i expected

I bought this product for just the use of looking around our 30 acre property and spot lighting up in Michigan. I haven't been to Michigan yet but from looking around my property this is great.This product is so great because it is digitally enhanced, can see 250 yards but i think it sees farther like 350 i would say, the day feature is great to but make sure you leave the cap on for the day feature because the lens is very sensitive to light it can see through the little tiny hole in the cap but anyways at night you take the cap off and look around. the only reason i give this a 4 star is it is a first generation now hear me out i was not looking for a 2nd generation but i didn't have the money for the 2nd generation, so i bought this 1st generation and it is absolutely hands down the best first generation model according to my research and my first hand account with this productVERY PLEASED

I purchased these for hog hunting and was VERY pleased. I saw clearly animals (Deer, Hog, mice, rabbits, raccoons) in the dark that I would have never seen otherwise. I can clearly make out animals at 15 feet all the way to 300 yards. Controls are easy enough to use and pretty durable design. I will tell you that this thing EATS batteries very very fast. I mean you can use a fresh set of AA's for maybe 3 hours before they need to be swapped out. That is even with sparingly using them during that 3 hours. It still works out pretty well though, I mean you can typically hear hogs as they are smelly and loud then pop on the NV to confirm what you see. Or if you are in a tree stand at night and you hear something these NV will easily identify what is on the ground. Then you can turn on a hog light or feeder light and BOOM! I do recommend carrying extra batteries with you, they are easy enough to swap out in the dark. but DO get a neck strap for this or just make one outta para cord so that you can not have to fumble around with these nox while you are drawing your weapon. I am very glad I got them.gonna figure out how to have and external batter (which there is a plug to use) with a long chord so that I don't have to change the batteries so much on long hunts.

Affordable Entry Level NVD

I've used night vision since the early days when they were referred to as ""star scopes"" and I currently own monoculars in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generations. I was curious about the digital technology and how it would compare to the image intensifiers I was familiar with. I opted for the lower magnification since previous experience had shown me that higher magnification has a limited application in night vision. First, the image presented in this scope is black and white, rather than green like the intensifiers produce. Like 1st Gen, this is helpless w/o the IR illuminator. Unlike 1st Gen, it produces a better image w/o distortion. I was a little disappointed in the narrow field of view. In comparison to 2nd and 3rd Gen, this unit is far from competitive but that's to be expected at this price point. A couple of points not related to the scope's performance: The case is far too tight, making it very difficult to get the scope in and out. Come on, Bushnell! Put another 25 cents worth of fabric into it to make it usable and add a dollar to the cost. Same thing with the hand strap - it's far too small to be of much use.In summary, this is a very decent intro monocular for a casual user.

Man, Has Bushnell changed their quality. This thing is great! A must have for a hunter. Can watch you feeders before the sun comes up and at dusk it's great! The first night I took it out at 1:30am. Spotted a Coyote and Bam! My hunting buddies are getting the one.

Good scope for investigating surroundings in day, low,or no -light situations
by Valued Customer on December 13, 2014
 
 
 
 
 
Verified Purchase

This Monocular does what it is supposed to and definitely adjusts to aid visibility in a variety of light to low-light situations. For the price paid it is a superior product. Perhaps because I use my left hand and have short fingers, the grip is not as intuitive as I would have thought. It performs above expectations for the price and is superior the the first-ever scope I used in the military in the 1970's (and planted the seed for wanting one of these). However, it is a fixed magnification with zoom-in and out capabilities, but not able to zoom to 1:1 view and encompasses a limited area. I have taken it out at night to look for wild hogs, and find that although helpful, a scope with a wider range capability would serve much better. However, my friends or I will be taking it with along to find game in low-light situations, as it will come in handy for before or after the hunt to scan woodsy surroundings for animals spotted in mornings or taken in afternoons close to sunrise or sunset. It is also nice when traveling alone to check surroundings at rest areas or to investigate possible predators after dark. I had expected it to work a bit more similarly to standard Bushnell binoculars, but realize that it will take a bit of getting used to. I appreciate the ability to take photos or video if needed as well.

Not too shabby

I normally don't do reviews, but felt I had to on this.Anyone who has looked through, or owns, any intensifier type NOD that is Gen3 or higher, knows that the predecessors pretty much suck in comparison. Some Gen2+ units are decent, but will still cost you. I own an old Gen2+ riflescope that is marginally acceptable, but is a 4+ pound monster up against these new digital units. I have purchased, and subsequently returned several other ""low cost"" pieces NV gear trying to get something smaller. I have to say, I believe I'll be keeping this one. It's not the be all/end all, but it's the best thing I've seen in this price range ever. I'm excited to see what the technology will be in another year or two.I've been watching these digital devices for a while and decided to try the 3x because I wanted the capability of closer in use, and at least it has the video output for other screens, or video glasses. Once you get it focused and set the IR along with the brightness, the image is relatively clear looking through the unit's eyepiece. As another reviewer said, you can see somewhat in bright moonlight with the IR off, but it's not optimum. This is where Intensifier tubes win, for the moment.I decided to try some MyVu video glasses and it actually surprised me. Once I get some adapters for a more manageable tether, I can mount the monocular for a sort of hands-free option when/if I need it. (Note: Those glasses feel pretty delicate, but I wanted to try out the theory before springing for something more robust).The only cons I have are:1. The manual focus must be adjusted for objects at different distances for optimal clarity. I expected this from reading other reviews and the price dictates there has to be a shortfall somewhere.2. Depending on your intended use, the IR is large, bright, can and will be seen if the subject is looking straight at the unit and can see the visible red spectrum. If you have a true infrared illuminator/pointer, you'll want to use it instead I'm sure. I'll be testing mine tonight. I also have another IR filter I may try to see if I can calm the built in illuminator down a little.
