DIY Digital NV Screened Add-On Library.

Postby Radagast » 21 Feb 2016, 05:58

This thread is a resource for those intending to build a screened add-on.
Q: What is an screened add-on?
A: A clunky name for a digital night vision device that fits a camera behind (add on) a day scope, and uses an LCD screen mounted above or to the side of the day scope.
Q) Can I buy one commercially?
A) Yes. But that's not the point of this thread.
Q) But I don't want to build one!
A) Sigh. Look up NiteSite, Night Eye 500, Sniper Cam, Manic Industries Night Prowler. Or contact Some Bloke on here. Now go away.
Q) Why would I build one?
A) The cameras and IR torches used in home brew units are usually better than in the commercial units. The builds are cheaper than commercial units. Interesting and cool thing to do for those into home electronics. Often the components are plug and play, no need to learn to solder.
Q) So what do I need to build one?
A)Read the threads below.
Q) Where do I buy the parts?
A) Read the threads below.
Q) I have a different question?
A) If its not answered in the threads below, start a new thread in the DIY NV sub forum.

For the new builder, Rolaids, Paulham, Marky610, Jax13 and Some Bloke offer tutorials, either as posts on here or via Youtube. See their threads below:
