How To Choose Night Vision Binoculars To Meet Your Needs

How To Choose Night Vision Binoculars To Meet Your Needs

Night vision binoculars can help bring light to the darkness quite literally. If you want to know how to choose night vision binoculars that can meet your needs, then the first thing to consider is what type of night vision you need. There are two basic types of night vision: analog and thermal. Thermal binoculars pick up the ambient heat from an environment and can give you a basic outline of body movement. Analog binoculars, on the other hand, amplify the ambient light of an environment to create a 3D image.

Here are some other features and accessories you may wish to consider when shopping for a new pair of night vision binoculars as well.

1. Dipoter Adjustments

Every face is a little different, so a fixed set of binoculars doesn’t quite make too much sense. By having diopter adjustments available on your night vision binoculars, you’ll be able to get the equipment to compensate for the differences between your eyes. Although this usually only needs to be set once, it’s an important setting to have. You’ll find these adjustments typically on each eye piece.

2. Touch Focus

A surprising number of night vision binoculars have autofocusing capabilities to make them easy to use, but not necessarily give a user the best image. By having touch focus adjustments included with your new set of binoculars, you’ll be able to guarantee that you’ve got sharpest image possible on any given night. 

3. Long Range Detection

The average set of night vision binoculars will have detection that is good for about 200 yards. If infrared illumination is included with the technology, you’ll have the enhancement good for about 150 yards. This may work well for many situations, but your situation might be unique. If you need to look all the way across an open field at night, average night vision binoculars might not be good enough. 

4. Magnification

How close do you want to bring the objects in the distance to your sight? Many night vision products have limited magnification because the goal is to create a realistic picture of the environment at night. You will have 2x-3x magnification with most night vision binoculars. If your needs are greater than this, you may wind up paying more for your new equipment. 

5. Focus Range

Binoculars that focus in the night typically have a range that begins at 1 yard and then will go out to a specific distance. Many have focus ranges that extend outward infinitely, so the emphasis is placed on how close objects can be in focus. Is it fine that focus begins at 3 feet? Or do you need something that will allow for images even closer than that to stay in focus? 

Knowing how to choose night vision binoculars means taking these 5 specific features into account as you shop for your next product. When you do, then you’ll be able to have the equipment you want to meet your needs affordably and effectively.
