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.

    Hight & elevation adjustable mounts
    5" wireless dvr
    Reversing transmitter for cars

    That looks quality mate. How much was the build? And what distances do you get a clear picture too at night?

    Cost....
    lens can be most expensive piece of this biuld. However it can operate with a m42 lens with a c mount adaptor which are very reasonable on auction sites.
    this particular lens is quite rare. Cosmicar tv lens by pentax. It can be around £150. So I would say as a wireless night vision sight as pictured, around £400.
    as far as proformence, it's a huge leap from add on. Clarity is amazin on hd screen. Under moon light, no need for IR or very litle IR. On dark nights, with low setting on t20, easily over 100 yards. On high setting, you can see well over 400 yards, a bit over kill for Airgun, suitable for rimfire and possible center fire. Still a good fun using it with a Airgun.
    two 18650 battery will give almost 4 hours to run the camera and transmitter continually, a lot more if used with a spotter. wireless screen has it's own power which last around 5 hours.

    Dave, they are windage and elevation adjustable, on each mount tree is extra 3 screws. One on each side and one in front. Hence the reversed mount, so the front grub screw is in back in that arrangement.
    the two side screw push the mount either right or left, the front screw once loosened, allows you to lift the mount as desired and tightened in place. Nice bit of kit. A bit fidelly to get hang of, but easy once mastered.

    as you know, the zero will shift if the lens is changed. Some lenses puts the cross hair in the corner of the screen. If equipped with this mount, you wouldn't have to worry.

    iPhone needs a ip camera, that is a different ground, can't setup with ip system as you have a lag by the time it goes to cyber space, not suitable for shooting. May be good for observation but not suitable for rifle scope.

    Toni, If I may ask, would the ever popular E700 camera work with this setup and if so, where did you get the wireless transmitter?

    I know squat about photography, but I know Google and Ebay ... can you describe or suggest what I should look for. I know it should be f1.4 and C mount but other than that ????

    Cheers

    The E700 is a board cam and is too big to use so you use the EJ230 bullet cam instead which of similar quality and again obtainable from sure24 for about £95.

    Lens and camera are the most important part of the build, they need to sway . Best camera is ej230, its same as e700 but in bullet shape. How ever this build was with a exview bullet cam from China arond £40. Works just as good but on a budget.
    the lenses I use generally vary in focal lenght. Cosmicar 75mm 1.4 is a exceptional lens, samyang 85mm 1.4 are among my favourites at a cost of £100-200. Can go cheaper if thinking of a lower or higher focal lenght.
    chinon 55mm 1.4 lens in m42 mount can be adapted easily and the optics are good around £50 or chinon 125mm 2.8 is ok with lots of IR.
    As far as selling them, I can sell this one to build another, but that's not what I like to do. I've my hands full with other commitments.
    transmitter is nothing special. It's a car reversing transmitter and recover from eBay around £13.00. Will look it up for you.
    this setup easily outclass ns200, photon and their equivelants.

    Don't forget, you would also need a tube to house the camera, it can be obtain from "somebloke", a member on this forum.
