digital goggles library

Postby Radagast » 01 Mar 2016, 13:12

One subject occasionally discussed, but rarely carried through as a DIY build, is the use of video goggles for night vision, either for walking around or as a means of aiming a rifle.

The most well known is probably Rolaids 2.0 build, seen in these videos:

Thank you Radagast for this addition to your libraries.
As I said in another thread I have become totally dedicated to the use of Zeiss Cinemizer OLED videoglasses in combination with an e700 add on.
I am extending this build now with an e700 spotter, using a T20 torch head to connect a Yukon 3x42 to the camera as suggested by Poppy Mae.
This spotter build is nearly complete now.

Both e700 cameras from add on and spotter will be plugged in on the Cinemizer simultaniously so that I can choose between spotter signal and add on signal at will. To achieve this the spotter has a push button to operate it and no switch, so that there is no video signal from it when I use the add on video signal to take a shot.
I hope I will be able to post pictures of this complete build later on.

Reindeer I'll be very interested to see how your work with the glasses comes together as I have a set of very basic ones but unsure what to do with them.
I tried the link but get the message "The folder ‘/Cinemizer add on’ doesn’t exist."

I've seen your version of Poppy's Yukon, do you have links for any of your other projects with glasses?

Hello Jethro
I just tried the link again and on my tablet it does work. It may take a while for the folder to open and show the contents. Please try again and if it does not work I will post pictures again.

It must be me then 'coz I still can't open it.
In the address it has "https://www.dropbox.com/home......."
I think you can access it because its your box but for the rest of us shouldn't "home" be a user name?

The Sunnranger in the first picture no longer exists. I mentioned in another thread that imho the difference between regular T20 and Sunnranger is quite evident with S Oslon but much less with AS Oslon, so for now I decided to offer the cut off T20 head and the Yukon lens to my spotter project.
By the way, if anyone would have one or more T20 heads lying around and no use for them, I would like to buy them!

:lol: I asked the same question my self in another thread and alas no offers

So you're semi permanently tethered to the gun and the spotter?

How much more superior do you consider the Cinemizer glasses to be when compared to Vufix?

Yes, that is the idea. A lot of my night hunting is from high seats. So I can use the spotter to look around. When I see boar I just leave the spotter hanging from a lanyard around my neck, take up my rifle, switch on power to the add on and take a shot. This will also work when sneaking up onto boar when they are feeding on crops and harvested fields, my favourite way of hunting them. That is why I do not want a switch on my spotter. I have no idea what happens when the videoglasses receive signals from both spotter and add on simultaniously and frankly I do not want to try. Maybe one of the more electronically gifted forum members can elaborate here.
As for a comparison between Cinemizer and Vuzix, that depends on the model. VGA resolution, is good, WVGA is better, LED screens are good, OLED screens are better. What model do you have?
