1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Hi guys.
    I've just taken delivery of an NS 50 and I'm considering a digital video recorder for my set up. I would appreciate some guidance on what to use for a video capture device. Would rather not pay the earth. :)
    Cheers in advance. :up:

    I use the JXD 990,this is what I use with my digital nightscope, turns night into day, plus the fact that you don't end up being blinded in one eye a couple of minutes into using it, I use my set up for fishing at night, I can sit 2 foot away from a fish and watch its every movement including sucking in my bait and it has no clue im there, or go down and sit on the cliffs and watch some very strange people doing some very strange things on the beach :)

    Unfortunately in this area you tend to get what you pay for. I have a jxd990 and can't get to grips with the control buttons, maybe if I used it every day it would be different but it's far more fiddly than I would like. Quite a few people use and like the Angel Eye (I can't give links as it's not certain if the sellers are actually offering genuine items etc), the Lawmate is reckoned to be a good top end dvr and RF Concepts used to do (and may still sell) another unit which a lot of people regard highly. Yukon also sell a recorder which is supposed to perform well.
    You don't need to worry about HD recording since your input is going to be of roughly 640x480 (VGA) quality and make sure that you get one which has composite video input not one which only works through usb or hdmi.

    dont forget you7 tube adds spue to the recording lol..needs to be a non compressed/converted sourse on the net..as a btw.

    those box efferts arnt bad from hobby king, they seem similar to those angel and the umpty seven other very very very similar diferent named angels. (100 quid plus for better quolity, 300 plus type better.

    omce your beyond image quolity, i.e accempted you cant have it the same as 300 quid plus its time to add the gadgets up lol..this one has 5-18 or su,,ut volt imput, tis small, the leads are the biggest part of it, if your cam is 12v it needs 12v or more to record directly through it, and live veiw at the same time, but..if you less volts to it than the cam/screen you get a black screen, it still records everything that the cam see's, so for that way its use a T on the vidio output, works fine then.
    a few features in the menu but best is set it to record om switch on, it does just that, and works off a small card up to 32 gig...(the power supply and record on switch is is what did it for me, that and the size).

    Can anyone tell me if this will work as a viewing screen (I know it's a small screen) and a recorder on the photon? Advice please.

    You could use it as a viewing screen although it's a bit on the small side for that. If you're thinking could you use it to aim the Photon it won't be any good because the video out from the Photon doesn't show cross hairs.

    Thanks Terry, I am aware that it wont show the cross hairs I am just wanting something firstly that I can use as a viewing screen rather than have to shoulder the rifle all the time and a bonus if it recorded but not essential. My knowledge of screens that I can do this with is zero so was just asking more for the quality of the resolution etc etc or if anyone had other ideas to achieve my set up?

    I used an Angel eye off ebay for recording off my digisight. It works well enough once you sort out the menu/set up etc.

    It's too small to use as a view/aiming screen though mate.
