The Carson OPMOD DNV 1.0 Limited Edition Mini Aura Digital Night Vision Pocket Monocular is available exclusively at Optics Planet. The OPMOD team of specialists joined forces with Carson to create a super compact night vision device. The Carson OPMOD Mini NVD with Pouch runs on 3 AAA batteries, so you don't need to worry about rushing out to an obscure store to get batteries that may or may not be in stock. This mini NVD allows you to sift through 4 IR intensity settings to find the perfect one for the current situation. You can pick from 100%, 60%, 30%, or have it turned off. Seeing in the dark is no longer a problem. Turning on and turning off this monocular is as complex as holding down the power button for three seconds. With 2 focusing knobs, you can easily get your target in focus. When you're finished using the Carson OPMOD DNV NVD Pocket Monocular, simply turn it off and keep it in the pouch for safe keeping. The pouch comes complete with an OPMOD logo to show off your taste, as well as a belt loop, which allows you to keep it with you at all times without being in the way. Since it only weighs a mere 58 grams (without batteries), you don't need to worry about it weighing you down. The super light, compact Carson OPMOD Night Vision Monocular dons the OPMOD logo and is always ready for your after-dark missions. The Carson OPMOD Digital Night Vision Pocket Monocular is also featured in the Santa Stakeout Kit.

You know full well the only reason NV costs what it does is the government doesn’t want you to own it. Nothing inside it costs much.

Junk.

NV is a pay to play industry.

If it is cheap, it is junk.

Junk. NV is a pay to play industry. If it is cheap, it is junk.

Translation: you don't own anything better but talking shit helps you sleep at night.

In all fairness, this is not tactical grade NV, and anyone getting this should already be fully aware of that fact because of the missing couple of digits in the price [$XX, vs $YYYY...] Moreover, "in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king:" this little digital NV gadget is small enough to fit in your pocket, so you'll have it to hand when needed, instead of stumbling around in the dark. For the price, it is hard to beat this. The built-in IR light [that it _absolutely_ requires, like ALL digital NV] has 3 settings; dim, marginally less so, and too bright close up but too dim more than ~ 30ft away. The instructions that come with it don't begin to give you the necessary information to get a usable image out of it [as is common w/ all the cheap NV I'm familiar with]: turn on, focus the ocular on the internal display so the individual pixels are crisp; then focus the objective on the correct distance to see what you're trying to observe. If you want to see w/o being seen, you need to lurk on Amazon or ebay for an IR940 filter [camera lens attachment, typically ~52mm or so diameter: massively too large for the tiny light on the front of this device, but hey, it's what's available. If you spend more than $15 you spent too much...] - covering up the IR light on the front [which emits a visible red glow] w/ an IR filter that actually limits the visible light [all the "IR7XX" & "IR8XX" filters you'll find allow lots of visible light thru] will keep you from being immediately spotted in the dark by anyone possessing Eyeball, Mk1 organic detection equipment... The biggest drawback to this is that there is NO output control, and the built-in display is TOO F!!#@$NG BRIGHT! It *will* give you a headache if you use it for any length of time, and it *will* utterly destroy any ability to see in low light out of that eye for any reasonable recovery period. It needs a ND filter or something on the inside of the ocular, but I haven't gotten around to experimenting w/ mine to determine what level of reduction it needs. I contacted Carson and made the suggestion they put in some sort of adjustment for that, but it was pretty clear case of "Yeah, sure, whatever, thanks for the suggestion, we'll get to it next Feb 30th..." based upon their reply. Anyway, if you're looking for something to keep in your pocket for going out walking at dusk and not tripping in the dark on the way home, this is a pretty reasonable buy. But you can buy real Gen1 NV for a similar price if you find it on sale, and it will actually work to some extent in marginal light w/o artificial illumination [& w/o burning out your own dark-adapted vision] which no digital NV can do. But the Gen1 analog NV will be significantly larger form factor, have lower definition, and eat batteries faster; just the nature of the beast.

That’s the case with almost anything gun related but we continue to have Chinese knock offs with people saying how good they are
