When binoculars approach their optical limits, even those with top-end light-gathering
power and high twilight factors, this is when night-vision comes into its own.
The remaining natural light - even light conditions where the human eye is unable
to function - will be fully amplified with night vision. The outstanding multicoated
lens system reproduces viewed subjects to both a clear and sharp image. The
optical system of the NV mini gives a 2x magnification. When the available light
is not sufficient, an integrated infrared illuminator can be switched on. This
additional luminous source, not perceivable by the human eye, provides comfortable
observation even in total darkness.
Ultra compact dimensions of only 33 x 41 x 107mm and its minimal weight of only 180g make the NV mini so ideal for many uses. As well as its outstanding technical qualities, it also enjoys exceptional design that is good to the eye. The ergonomic shape of the body, which is partially coated with rubber armouring, permits noiseless and reliable handling. The NV mini has been designed and produced to be the ideal travel companion for all outdoor activities at night or in poor lighting conditions.
The Minox NV Mini will be available from early April 2004.
