Here is the last and final PROTO - TYPE of the new Nite – Hunter Digi Add on that I have been looking at and testing today.
The final engineered unit will look like this unit but will be another 150 to 200 grams lighter (it’s as light as a camcorder now) so will be super light when finished.
The focus and zoom slots will also be the same size once finished on the FOR SALE unit and the glue and fixing marks will not be seen.
The unit runs off a mobile phone battery and gives around 3 hours of usage from a single charge. A second battery costs around £5 off EBay.
I will be showing the finished review of the unit in around 3 weeks time once I and Davy have fully put it through its paces on rats, rabbits and day time corvids.
I’m expecting between 150 and 250 yards easy with this unit in complete darkness with a illuminator.
I’ve been using this unit today recording a corvid hunt in the day time and all I can say is WOW ITS BRILL.
The IR illuminator that I will be testing it with is the new Nite – Hunter IR400 SB (Super Bright) with dimmer switch.
The Digi Add on will be on sale in 8 weeks time and orders can be phoned through to Anthoni now. It’s on a first come first serve basis.
A unit less the IR illuminator is £310 posted.
Any IR source can be used with the add on.
The new IR400 SB is £135 and runs off a 6v or 12 v supply. (6v comes as standard) The 12 volt battery is £14 off EBay but well worth it as it almost doubles the unit’s brightness.
This illuminator can be used with any gen 1 night vision device.
Watch this space as I’m sure many will want these items once they see the review and what they are capable of.
