Re: Which WDV800 the 12mm or 16mm ?

I have the S version, bought second hand. If I did it again I'd probably go for the L for the less scope magnification which would bring in more ir for the size of objective. Less parallax focus fussy would help too, as I usually set my NV for optimum point blank and walk in to focus. For rabbit tha...

Re: Warden Adder Scopecam

I'll answer this one. No, with rear add ons digi magnification is just magnifying a picture already taken, so your crosshair is the same at any digi mag on screen. However, on front add ons its far more problematic as the cross hair is looking at the screen. I think Clive would agree that he didn't ...

Re: Warden Adder Scopecam

What were the parallax setting? How parallax focus needy was it? Lastly, how well did it manage the ir? If you can comment on both unit ir and additional AS please . The initial impression looks excellent. I know its early days but I'm sure everyone is keen to see just more reports of how it copes w...

Re: Warden Adder Scopecam

Well looks like Clive has brought another great product to the market at a respectful price. Tweaked it so getting the Chinese to make a product worth having. For the Air Rifle boys this might be perfect. For the rimfire boys pretty much there. If it can work with 50m parallax high end scopes then w...

Re: Clives drone replacement.

Jackal isn't mincing his words. I shoot x8 or x10 with my WDV because its less focus fussy. I can set it up so I walk into focus at 40-50m, which is about as close as rabbits will allow a fox to pass. Off sticks I get my head shots. For long range foxes I like more mag. When I had a first edition DP...

Re: Clives drone replacement.

I now shoot far more rabbits head shot, as dealers like them that way and if using the .17HMR it makes a mess. The additional magnification is preferable. Foxes at range then again magnification helps. In the old tubed fixed x6 days then I always wished there was more magnification. The DP x10 was a...

Re: Wardy 800

When it comes to Hawk Sidewinders and MTC Mambas a lot have been sold so they regularly come up on the Second Hand market. When it comes to lens coating in relation to ir management then the cleanest sharpest images through Digi NV are given by the least sophisticated coatings. Which is why often th...

Re: Wardy 800

I've had n luck with the Zeiss Conquests as the parallax just doesn't go low enough.
I talked to the factory and it can't be changed.

A side parallax from 15m up is the start point to get the most out of the system.

Re: Black Sun Ruby Test

Foxes are all pretty educated by now, why they probably survived this long. So it doesn't take much to get them to scarper. Had a Ruby on a fox, wrong rifle, the other night for a good while; it didn't notice or react at all. IR is active, so I think some animals get a "feeling" rather than actually...

Re: Thermal or night vision

Now no DP, then a WDV800l with Clive's Sunranger Ruby with a compatible scope such as a Sidewinder probably gives the best and most variable option now done digi wise. High magnification and on open fields hard not to like. Budget for complete setup £1,300 or so. As said Pulsar's N series just isn't...
