Our digital Night Vision is battery operated, light gathering with infra-red. The LCD screen is a safe and easy way for people to view the image and it has a manual focus/zoom. Unlike a goggle type night vision which can create feelings on nausea, or dementia due to the goggles proximity and focus; the LCD screen allows the user to have a true digital night vision experience without any ancillary concerns. It’s a simple on/off, IR on/off and point and shoot item that is great fun indoors and out. The range is approximately 50 feet but we have had success up to 100' in optimum conditions and it comes with its own carry case.
