ASTROSCOPE NIGHT VISION ADAPTER SLR CAMERAS

Convert Your Digital SLR Camera Into a High-Performance Night Vision System. Electro-physics AstroScope is an advanced night vision module that incorporates a state-of-the-art Gen 3 PRO PINNACLE® image intensifier tube that transforms dark scenes (below 10-4 lux) into bright, high-resolution images. The AstroScope 9350EOS-3PRO is specifically designed for Canon EOS-type cameras and mounts between the camera body and Canon EOS lenses using the standard Canon bayonet. AstroScope incorporates a high quality optic designed specifically for today’s digital SLR cameras and delivers full frame images with little or no vignetting. (Also available for other models of DSLRs.)

In wide use with military and law enforcement organizations around the world, AstroScope’s battlefield-proven design delivers seamless integration with your camera body and requires no additional batteries or field adjustment, such as back focus. When you need to get the shot, AstroScope™ delivers. A design that delivers optimum performance in every configuration. Unlike pocketscope-based night vision setups, AstroScope™ is specifically designed for image capture applications. Only AstroScope™ enables you to use your high performance Canon lenses to shoot full frame images at distances beyond 1000 meters! AstroScope™ passes all communication signals between the camera body and lens, which ensures features, like image stabilization, work when you really need them. AstroScope’s modular design enables you to easily transfer the image intensifier to other camera platforms including Nikon SLRs, Canon XL-2 video cameras and fixed lens camcorders.

The EyeClops Night Vision V2 Goggles

If when reading this page…that is if you got this far…saw the prices for the devices we’ve covered gave you a coronary…don’t despair. Although the latest in military night-vision hardware is well out of the reach of the vast majority of paranormal investigative teams, the ability to sneak around in pitch darkness as a stealthy Ghost Buster with style is not out of the question. There’s always something that may yet appeal to you and at a price that everyone can afford.

The EyeClops Night Vision Infrared Stealth Goggles is a good example. Although we’ve not tested a pair out, who knows, they could prove to be an invaluable addition to your covert ops ghost hunting inventory. Though these infrared night vision goggles are aimed, and this is an assumption, at children, we see no reason as to why age should be any king of barrier when it comes to engaging in a little night prowling!

If nothing else, we see the headgear has potential for re-engineering to attach a mini camcorder with wireless microphone to the unit. Besides, you’ll be in the dark, and although you can see everyone else, no one can see you. Of course unless they too have a pair on.

The EyeClops Night Vision V2 is powered by real infra-red technology. With invisible infra-red illumination, so you are the hunter, and not the hunted. Modes include ‘military’ or ‘spy’ display modes (a long-range mode for recon missions or stealth mode for close proximity). The V2 has a form-fitting performance visor, action detailing, focal adjustment and new dual eye display. See up to 50′ in complete and total darkness. Use both eyes with the hand-held binocular design and see up to 50′ in complete and total darkness powered by real infra-red technology. Did we mention they also look kewl? Or, that they only cost about $60.00!

The BIG question is – Does It Really Help???

One thing to keep in mind when buying any equipment, don’t let buyers remorse make you wish you hadn’t done it. Think about the investment vs. the benefit here. So far to date, there has been no concrete evidence that these night vision systems (other than thermal) really help see what we can’t already see in normal light.

The only evidence every submitted to the Dimension Zone, has been the possibility night vision goggles being helpful in detecting UFOs, where none can be seen with the naked eye. Recording them, would be much more expensive (as seen above with the Night Enforcer) only to still have them torn apart by the skeptics. So sure, they’re great toys, and definitely high-tech, but you decide; Are they really worth the price you’ll pay for what you’ll really get?
