This digital night vision device has a recording function, allowing you to record your observations as a photo or video to a Micro SD card. It is easily operated with just one hand. This instrument is not prone to malfunction due to illumination overexposure since it is equipped with the newest digital technology and not the traditional analog version. Although intended for use during dusk or dawn, the integrated IR illumination allows the observer to see in total darkness. The large objective lens collects enough light for viewing in dark environments; the 5x magnification allows far objects to be seen with greater detail. The maximum observation distance is approximately 200 m.
