Product Description

Product Description

The new Stealthview¿ Digital Night Vision products use a powerful infrared spotlight to produce images with resolution rivaling that of Generation 2 and 3 optics. The view is sharp from edge to edge, and they're effective in complete darkness and at long distances. They're also invisible to game animals and observers.

Amazon.com

Bushnell has engineered the Digital Stealthview 5x42 with Supercharged Infrared Monocular to produce images with resolution that rivals costly Generation 2 and 3 optics. Using a powerful infrared spotlight that produces sharp images even in pitch darkness, the Stealthview monocular is ideal for a wide variety of applications including security and surveillance, camping, night fishing, navigation, and wildlife observation.

This powerful infrared technology works by providing a light source for the Stealthview system to amplify and collect through an objective lens. This light is then processed through an image sensor and transferred to an in-view black-and-white micro-display, which features CMOS technology for superior LCD resolution. The resulting digital image can then be transmitted to video camcorders, laptops, and television screens via a video output port.

Designed for use in a variety of terrains, the lightweight Stealthview monocular features a weather resistant, ergonomically shaped body and an adjustable eyepiece for added comfort during prolonged use. The Stealthview monocular operates on six AA batteries and provides up to two hours of continuous run time with the infrared spotlight on and up to four hours without the infrared spotlight.

Bushnell Digital Stealth View 5x42 w/ Super Charged Infrared Monocular

I purchased this scope in Canada; oddly enough when I went to order it from a US website they would not ship it here.

The image is very bright and can be a bit blinding in a dark location. When you remove your eye from the eyepiece it will take you a minute or so to regain your natural night vision in that eye; good job it's only a monocular, at least you'll have one working eye! One push button makes it brighter and another button dims it just as quickly; dimming it reduces the contrast. I got the impression that this is just a feature of infra-red viewing rather than a problem with the scope. After using the scope for a while I have learned to prefer a lower light level.

The only other two buttons are the on/off switch and the super IR switch, both of these are push buttons rather than slide switches. I would prefer a slide switch for the on/off function as it is too easy to turn the unit on simply by picking it up in its flexible case. A small and discrete green led indicates that the unit is on, it is not visible except to the user, and will flash to a indicate low battery. I haven't used it enough to say how long the 6 AA batteries last, but they claim 2 - 8 hours depending on how much you use the super IR.

I am used to using binoculars and found this unit surprisingly ergonomic for a monocular. You will have no problem operating it in darkness once you are familiar with the layout, the buttons are all on top where your fingers expect them to be. Make sure you adjust the dioptre focus properly or you will have a harder time adjusting the main focus tube.

I cannot recommend this product. The black and white low resolution display is the biggest disadvantage of the unit. Firstly, it will take your eye several minutes to get used to the dark after getting white light from the display to your eye. When out in the dark, the last thing you want is to get blinded by white light and I cannot understand why Bushnell came up with the b&w display. Secondly the display has low resolution, so details in the surroundings will not be seen. Thirdly, the display is small. When using the extra infrared illuminator, only things illuminated could be seen, not the surroundings. The on/off switch is placed in such a way that when the unit is in its carrying bag, one can accidently turn it on, resulting in 6 empty AA-batteris and unoperable monocular. It has happened to me several times that the unit is turned on, when opening its carrying bag. I happen to own Prowler 4.0 X 50mm, also from Bushnell, and that is a much better product (not a perfect one of course), giving you much better resolution and better image.

I was at first always kind of worried about getting a night optics thinking that it was just some expensive mockery that wasn't worth the money. Well I decided to buy this and just go for it, and was out right amazed and impressed. In complete darkness were I couldn't see my hand infront of my face or any light in the area, I turned this sucker on and without even useing the iluminator add on could see perfectly. The ability to change how bright the light intensity was really helped to so that the picture on the digital screen in the eye piece wasn't bled white. I haven't had the chance to try viewing something at a distance more than a hondred yards but so far I am really impressed and glad that I bought it. Also when you turn the spotlight IR on a circular white huh of all that is illuminated appears on the screen.

If you expect things to look like daylight, you'll be disappointed. It is far better than an old Russian unit I have which was an early generation light amplification unit, (green glow type). What you have here is a lot like a B&W security camera with an IR illuminator built into a hand held portable unit.

As some of the other reviews indicate, in the beginning it will seem somewhat cumbersome and clunky getting used to the controls and finding the most pleasing contrast settings. Takes a while, but once you get used to it, it gets a lot easier to make it work like you want it too.

One problem is that if you are just moving around in very low light and want to take a better look at things, it takes time for your eyes to adjust from darkness to the brightness in the viewfinder and then going back. The best way to use it is looking through it for an extended time scanning the area of interest, keeping your eye on the eyepiece. Different types of scenes will take some adjustment to optimize the appearance. Some things reflect light better than others so the best scenario is watching a particular area for an extended period. Once your eyes adjust and you get the contrast dialed in, it works pretty well. The IR illuminators are surprisingly pretty powerful. At short distances the high powered one will "wash out" what you're looking at, but it does seem to reach out pretty good. The claimed 600 feet is a bit of a stretch except under the most ideal of conditions. If you have some ambient light, I think it is better without it. But in really dark country night where you can't see your hand in front of your face, it does a great job of lighting things up.

My feelings on it are mixed.
