$300 vs $3,000 Evening Imaginative and prescient
two years ago I did a video about night vision and it was very popular I did a few videos about night vision but one of them I was talking about the PBS 14 about how I liked it for you know the average citizen and how crucial I thought I thought night vision was and so the biggest question was you know.
People ask like I got email and still do this day I get emailed it says you know how can I get budget night vision so after that video um I sought out it was like maybe a year and a half ago I sought out some bunch of night vision now I tried some in the past with really crappy but I sought out to look for some and I purchased some.
Like I said a year and a half ago and so I got it in didn't even open the box I actually just sat it down in the shop and on a table and planned on doing the video within a few weeks and then lo and behold I guess someone moved it and it got moved again I got moved again moved again and then the next thing I.
Know it's in the back corner so the other day I was actually cleaning up some stuff in in the shop and I found the night vision that I bought like a year and a half ago two years ago okay the commander nv100 now this is 300 night vision and we're gonna compare it to a PVS 14 which is three thousand dollar night Edition.
So we're gonna go against monocular against monocular because the commander nv100 is a monocular and then the PBS 14 is obviously a monocular you know I also own and have on for a few years uh duels as well and you know you can hear my thoughts on duels there I mean they're great they're great but you're looking at eight to ten thousand dollar.
Investment on Dual night vision he's a product for most people know unless you have the uh you know extra income I would never recommend doing it and most of the time if I was in some kind of situation I would probably want to run a monocular if I was an individual by myself in some kind of grid down scenario or a civil war or a.
Invasion because with a monocular I still have one eye open to see if I'm in in I get inside a white light I'm exposing myself I can also see what everyone else sees without night vision at the same time so I think there's a big a huge benefit to the monocular as an individual you know like I said binos are great.
Um I own them you know so you have people that don't own them and say you know they're they're better uh PBS 14 is better because they can't afford them they're trying to justify the purchase I have both and you hear me telling you I would be very happy just to run PBS 14 and that's what I'll probably would run as an individual over duels duels is.
Great if you got a team of people because you got other people with situational awareness around you at the same time right that's why in the military Special Operations are running duals because they have other guys running but but they did run PBS 14s before so just because the technology.
All right guys let's talk about the 300 338 versus the 3100 night vision so this is made by one leaf um and it's digital night vision whereas this is analog and this is real time what you see is what you get there's a little bit of a delay on here very very minimal very minimal from a lot that I've tried.
You know obviously it's cheap which is a a pro right this one can record right so you can record you can take photos with it you cannot do that with a PBS 14. um so that's phenomenal you can make your scope essentially a night vision scope with this you can also do that with this.
You can mount this Little Weapon as well um this isn't magnified like a night vision scope like a lot of people buy night vision scopes for coyote hunting and stuff like that this is not magnified so you put it on magnification which is great because you may not want magnification you may want you know.
Seeing you know if you're like trying to essentially scope an area you're pulling security or something like that and using this as a handheld device is monocular so you can essentially use this with or without magnification if you attach it to an optic or not right or scope I should say.
So it can be used as a handheld quickly and then quickly click on the rifle with this collar here so this collar actually stays on the rifle you can twist and clip it onto a rifle very quickly so you can turn this uh from uh you know essentially a handheld where you're pulling security if you see something you can put on an optic.
That's a great characteristic of having one of these some of the cons about this is that you can't walk with it that's the benefit of having night vision in my opinion is I can move I can move quickly I see things real time analog and I can move this is digital you got a little bit of delay and you can't walk with it because.
It doesn't attach to a helmet right so you don't have a helmet attachment right so you can't attach it you can attach the PBS 14 you can attach like binos here to a helmet and obviously that's a huge benefit being able to move being stationary and static somewhere is not cool unless you're pulling security or you're designated Marksman or.
Something like that so again the con the other con is that this this is digital whereas this is analog so you've got that minimal but still you have a lag and this is not as crisp as true night vision here now this is Gen 3 PBS 14 white phosphor auto gate so you know you're not going to get blinded whenever.
You walk into a room lit up and all that sort of stuff it's not going to damage the night vision this is the new stuff this is the new type stuff my duels are the same way and I would always recommend white phosphor go white phosphor you have less eye fatigue and those sort of things now this is like a black and white you can also get color.
Watch see color with this 300 unit here has the IR Eliminator here which you have to use one for this and I'm going to show a video of both without using IR Illuminator and width makes a huge difference so having that IR Illuminator is amazing on the device they're about the same weight it's negligible in my opinion so this one has a 4 to 24 value.
Magnification one to three digital Zoom 12 by 80 1280 by 960 display resolution the IR power of this is 6000 NW it has again like I said before video and photo capabilities IR detection range of 300 meters it comes with its own micro SD card here as you can see there there's a Micro SD.
Card for video and photo the battery life on this is six hours has a built-in microphone you can record audio as well it comes with three different clamp collars here so for different various uh Scopes you have it has a rechargeable 18 650 battery so you have the recharging cable and all that stuff that you can attach you can.
Attach this directly to a computer as well and download the video or you can take it out whatever you want to do and again the night vision is black and white it also has color recording as well there's a focus ring here at the bottom so you can focus this just like you do with the PBS 14 okay so the uses for this I would say is that.
You know obviously you can private investigative work because you're you're able to record um pulling security night hunting um you know coyotes feral Hogs things like that and just talking about some of the benefits of the PBS 14 all right so I mounted it to the helmet the PBS 14.
Here so you can see that helmet mount yep so the benefits of this is as white phosphor gen 3 like I said 40 degree field of view vision field of view and and that's better than the um 300 gig there analog real time 40 hour battery life.
With a double A battery which is great so 40 freaking hours versus six you can run this thing handheld this PBS 14 handheld helmet mounted like you see here so I can move shoot move and communicate this also can be weapon mounted just like this so you can run this people do run this.
And you can shoot and move and communicate with this on a helmet with your AR-15 with an IR laser mounted that's how I do it now I've got videos showing how to do that I'll post up here post links all these videos you can see you can see the original PBS 14 video as well so shoot move communicate I can run all.
The web I can run a handheld I can do security I can tuck it away in a jacket you know if I'm pulling security or wanting to observe something maybe it's a greenhouse scenario I'm trying to collect an Intel Gathering intelligence all those sort of things right I don't have to walk around looking through a scope as I would with this uh gig here.
The one leaf also have a thermal clip on for this actually it's so you can see the attachment there I run it on my duel so a thermal clip on so not only do I have the ability to see night vision but for a few you know I think another three or four thousand dollars my clip-on is I can see duals with thermal.
Imaging so night vision and thermal imaging which is the best you no one can hide from you at that point you only you own the night in that situation one big thing about this is you have to adjust this manually like a DSLR camera it'll get out of focus right so you have to adjust it you know and obviously the.
Cost three thousand dollars that's a lot of money you know you ask Mama to ask her for three thousand dollars for night vision she's gonna say what in the hell do you need night vision for and then when you try to explain it to her she's going to think you're crazy you know so yeah so that versus 300 so other thing is this is uh made by my friends over.
There us night vision nope I'm not paid by them don't don't get any any benefit I just like the guys a Christian he's a veteran great man you purchase from them I definitely highly recommend these guys U.S night vision there um this is made in the USA this is Maiden China China China but again I buy all my and you can ask and call and ask.
Them about my night vision these are not gifted I buy these I would never take anything from that expensive from anyone for my us night vision so I definitely recommend if you want real night vision get that now if you can't afford it who is this for someone who can't afford there's no way possible I can afford these real night vision you know.
And this is r b in rnvg by the way I like these because they're metal body but if you can't afford it there's no way possible but you need to be able to see in the dark this is it 300 bucks you got something you tuck away in your bug out bag your vehicle carry around with you look through you can mount it onto lpvo on.
Your AR-15 so you have a lot of capability here you can film night vision if you don't go do filming you're you're filming videos for YouTube or Instagram something like that because I will say the night vision video we filmed I had to buy a special camera Sony that cost me five thousand.
Dollars just to film that video for shooting with night vision literally one video cost me five thousand dollars just to get the camera I could have bought this gig about a known and existed and filmed it shooting with night vision so guys the thing is is that if there's no way possible for you to afford this will total out of your price range which is.
Fine there's nothing wrong with that you know and uh but you want the ability to be a c at night this is it this is it 300 you can't beat it and again I bought this this is I'm not getting paid for it I'm gonna put the link up for uh you to purchase one of these if you want to do that in hell.
Maybe you've got a PBS 14 maybe you want something you want to throw away you want something else to have in your bag you want something to be able to carry around you want something that you can film with you can record with you can take photos with at night you want something that you can attach to your magnification right so that's the thing.
It's it's it's a force multiplier obviously people say some people say that you don't need night vision those people are people that can't afford night vision because anyone who spent any time in the military there's a reason why in the military we use night vision right because fighting happens at night too right it.
Doesn't it doesn't just happen during daytime and most of the time it happens at night so I'm going to show two pieces of video here guys one of the one leaf right and and you're gonna see the video is a little a little sketchy because it is hanging the the when you're looking through the binocular it looks way.
Better than that but I guess the recording is just kind of it just looks kind of sketchy it's it I promise you the when you're looking through the night vision it looks much clearer and better than this or probably this it's not it's not clear it looks the same it's just it just moves better um because the video hangs up for some.
Reason so it looks good for three hundred dollars this video looks amazing right now the PBS 14 I had to use my cell phone and you can get mounts and things like that for for PBS 14 to run cell phones with it that's something you want to do if you want to use your PBS 14 film you can also get connections to cameras like.
Dslrs as well I just don't do that because I don't have reason to I I was an idiot and bought the five thousand dollar freaking Sony to use for one video One video um anyway but the PBS 14 obviously you can see it's very crisp real time looks great no eye fatigue or very minimal comparatively to the green phosphor and.
To the one leaf you're gonna get eye fatigue with that thing so it looks phenomenal but you'll notice on the the first clip I'm going to play here is that this is without IR Eliminator so you you I was in a room right now if I was out in getting Moonlight it would be much brighter but then when you see I crank on the IR Illuminator which is.
Attached to a rifle it blows up it's like I'm almost in daytime but everything's just black and white you know anyhow again guys this is something I I I think you need you need night vision you need to be able to see in the dark you know it's 20 23.
Um and obviously there's a lot of other ways to do that you can home security cameras and things like that but something where you can be on the move and you can be able to see as you go I think it's just it's just truly a force multiplier in the modern day right and knowing how to shoot in the dark with night vision is very.
Important not just buying night vision but actually get getting trained on how to use this in the dark in employing your firearm is serious right even transitioning to a pistol with this right IR lasers make that much simpler but you also need to buy the IR laser you need to sight it in just like.
You would a scope and those sort of things so anyhow guys let me know sorry it took so long to try to find some night vision I had it but it got tucked away somewhere else but guys let me know your comments your thoughts below remember to stay frosty stay strapped stay dangerous take care.
