The Warden Adder Scopecam has a magnification range of 2-7x making it useable very well as both an add on and a QR spotter for off the rifle.

The other links that have been so helpfully shared show the magnification on those products as 4-28x making it pretty much useless as an addon. :thumbup:


Cheers





Clive If this comment had been your first when originally asked all over the place about it (along with the QR mount) it might've answered everyone's questions about it :thumbup: I dont think anyone was trying to 'bash' either product as there hasnt been any footage from the original to compare your upgrades
with,just knowing roughly what changes you have made to the original mag & mount would've done the trick i think ;)

So looking at the original Chinese pictures, you can clearly see a 16mm lens, which we all know is optimal for an add on. This gets more and more confusing! Seems the Chinese just struggle describing zoom and magnification.

And yes Dave, that response would have saved a lot of back and forth.

Well most of us know on here that the system magnification of a near eye add on or indeed complete rifle scope is a combination of:

Objective focal lens / sensor size / display size / eyepiece focal length. :roll:

All of these completely useless pieces of information for the consumer. But really handy for people who are having a go at designing 'products' who dont know their backsides from their elbows.

What is important to consumers are the performance characteristics of the unit, which we very clearly state on our website and demonstrate on our YouTube channel.


Cheers

Yep, a 16mm objective lens is only part of what makes an addon 'optimal' and just one ingredient to overall system mag
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

Looking at the pics of the Wildgame wg760 on AliExpress https://www.aliexpress.com/item/WILDGAM ... 22326.html
It shows a 3MP 16mm f1.4 lens set up for use on a 1/2.5" sensor.
The sensor is 1080pHD which means it's 1920x1080 pixels (2.1MP) and the near eye display is 800x600 (0.48MP)
That means that digital magnification of up to a factor of 4 can be used without degrading the quality of the image on the near eye display (HD recordings will be degraded)
They claim that magnification is x4 -x28
You can be sure that's optical and digital magnification combined
Divide 28 by 4 and you get 7, which is what Clive claims as the upper limit of the optical magnification.
What I'm not sure about is where the optical magnification is coming from. If it's a fixed 16mm lens, the the optical magnification is fixed.
That would imply that the lens is a varifocal, with either manual or motor driven focal length adjustment, and, presumably, some form of focussing adjustment.
Clive - would care to clarify for us?

Cheers

Hi Bruce,

No problem at all.

The Warden Adder Scopecam is a 2x optical magnification that you can take up to 7x using digital zoom. :thumbup:


Cheers

Thank you Clive - that makes a lot more sense.
