Let’s get straight to it: you can now buy pair of Equinox night-vision enabled binoculars for under $500. The presser [via ammoland.com] on two new models says “Equinox Z binoculars feature 1-3x digital zoom, adjustable IR settings and daytime color viewing with a viewing distance of up to 500 feet in the 2x40mm model and 750 feet in the 4x40mm version. Both units are powered with AA batteries for added convenience and cost savings. In addition . . .
the binoculars include image and video capture modes that allow users to record video and still images to be later downloaded to a computer. These devices also allow the user to select from multiple LCD brightness settings to select the best display intensity for current ambient light conditions.”
We’re reaching out for a pair, but night hog hunting just got a little easier. As for home defense, well, it’s better to have night vision on your HD long gun, but these look like a lot better than nothing.
