Re: Battery options for running E700 camera only?

I use the same battery holders and keep at least one spare with a new battery in my bag. This way there is no risk of damaging the cam.

Re: Battery options for running E700 camera only?

I use a 9 v. block battery to power my e700. Aldi 9 v. blocks are cheapest and run for about three hours at one go. Instead of a screen or viewfinder I use Zeiss Cinemizer videoglasses. I also use a spotter with these glasses at the same time so I can instantly choose between spotter and rifle setup...

Re: 1/1.8" CMOS camera RunCam Night Eagle (Black & White Video Only, No Color)

So, Bruce, conclusion from your last post:
There is still no evidence that RunCam Night Eagle can beat KT&C e700 as far as light sensivity is concearned?

three mode to one mode T20

I had a Chinese made 3 mode T20 AS of which the driver was probably fried, so no more IR came off it. I decided to bypass the driver by connecting the minus of the led to the brass pill and voila, there was light again, though in one (high) mode only. Would it be possible to install a potmeter in th...

Re: 1/1.8" CMOS camera RunCam Night Eagle (Black & White Video Only, No Color)

When this thread was started we were all very keen on hearing how these Night Eagle and Foxeer Monster cams are performing in the real NV world, Are they a good alternative for the true e700?

Re: removing pill from T38 illuminator

You are right, thank you. T38 pill is reverse thread whereas T20 is normal thread.

removing pill from T38 illuminator

I want to remove the AS pill from a T38 (UF 1407) illuminator since it is broken but I cannot get it out. It seems to be fused to the main tube. Is this because of galling? (aluminium pill in an aluminium tube) I have never had this with the brass T20 pills before. What do you call the tool to remov...

Re: Mounting the E700

I agree with you completely, sedstar.
In this case, the heart of the system, the cam, needs a strong and reliable body that houses it and protects it against moving around. This is exactly what the Pulsar DSA has to offer.
