Warden Adder Scopecam

Post by cliveward » 04 May 2018, 11:55

Hi All,

We've been a bit busy working away on this very exciting project for several months now, but it's all been tested and stock is finally arriving very soon. :thumbup:

Here's some blurb from our website for you:

"The Warden Adder Scopcam is a new evolution of digital add on devices for day optics.

At the heart of the unit is a full 1080P HD day / night sensor. This HD image is then relayed to the high resolution wide field of view 800x600 eyepiece display.

The unit can be used off of the rifle for spotting, day or night, with a useful optical magnification of 2-7x and built in IR means it’s completely self contained, even at night.

Fitting to the rifle to use as an add on is accomplished by a very quick bayonet QR attachment. Very similar to changing a lens on a camera.

The unit is very short and close couples to the rifle scope so you can view and record your shooting, day or night in full HD at the touch of a button. The recorded videos and still photographs are saved to a micro SD card (not supplied).

Recorded videos can be instantly reviewed directly through the device, for ‘shot review’.

The unit is powered by a single 18650 flat top rechargeable battery (supplied) and can be charged externally or inside the unit itself via USB. The unit can also be powered via USB. Battery life is around 8 hours.

The unit also has built in WiFi transmission so the view can be monitored on a smart phone or tablet. The app can also be used to control the recording functions of the unit.

Night time range fitted behind a day scope at a system magnification of 10x is 200 yards+ with the built in IR, 300 yards+ with a Black Sun Ruby BR20 and 400 yards+ with Black Sunnranger Ruby. If you utilise the digital magnification then these ranges can be achieved at even 20x system magnification with no loss of detail on the 800x600 display!

The unit has a fast 5 second start up and also has a sleep function for ‘instant on’.

The unit works best, especially at night with a day scope that has either adjustable objective or side parallax, that will ideally focus down to 40 yards due to the different focal point of IR light. Maximum eyepiece diameter of your day scope should be 45mm or less."

And a quick video showing normal shooting range use:

A bit of testing at 400 yards with an additional Black Sunnranger Ruby IR.




Cheers

The 800 series is more compact, shorter and more responsive to IR.

However with the advent of the Black Sun Ruby range is a little bit of a moot point because both the 800 and the Adder can be set up to see much further than most people shoot.

The 800 will see the backdrop at extreme ranges, whereas the Adder will struggle.

Ergonomics the WDV800 is better as it doesn't affect your shooting position at all. With the Adder you need to adjust around 30mm ish by either moving your day scope forward a little or adding a slip on stock extension to get it 'perfect'. It's still well useable without doing either though. Nothing like using an Archer for instance.

Under 200 yards I would say the Adder has more system resolution than the 800. The adder also has digital magnification built in so you can get very high magnifications without loosing range or quality because the 1080 sensor cropped at 2x digital zoom still has enough pixels to fill the 800x600 display.

The built in HD recording on the Adder is very handy as is the built in decent IR. So if you are shooting under 200 yards, all you need is the Adder unit. No other IR is necessary.

That aside. Either are very competent, just 'different'. I've been very pleased testing the Adder. :thumbup:


Cheers

Why has it taken so long to intergrate a decent res display and decent i.r into a Digi spotter?

a viable alternative to thermal

when asking for advice, please include what n.v device and/or illumination you already have (if any) and what rifles you intend to use them on...cheers

No idea. :wtf:

I think Pulsar did a decent spotter with a high resolution OLED at one point but on the NV side we're more focused on rifle mounted units.

This is an add on that can also be used as a spotter. ;)

Pulsar wanted too much money for their unit, plus you still needed to hang an i.r source off it

Being an addon too adds a lot of value to your unit. You already make a better addon so i'm looking at it as a spotter. A market which has hardly moved in years
So anyone wanting a spotter but not ready for the outlay for thermal does have something pretty nifty looking to go for :thumbup:

Hi Chris,

We've been working very hard directly with the actual factory to manufacture our spec. UK model, with what we know about add ons, which is quite a bit. :thumbup:

There are other versions available on the local Chinese market if you want something that isn't a Warden Adder. :thumbup: Some helpful souls have already been posting links within minutes of our product launch..just to really confuse consumers. :roll:


Cheers





Clive
