The IRIS is the most powerful night vision monocular we sell. It uses an ultra-high resolution CMOS with phenomenal performance in complete and total darkness. It has an effective range of 500 meters, a massive 3800mAh rechargeable battery, and comes with active crosshairs.

Night vision monoculars like the IRIS can be used in a number of ways but are most often used for hiking, camping, animal observation, hunting, property surveillance, photography, urban exploration, construction, and even home inspections. 

The IRIS features our latest firmware update which includes digital crosshairs and allows for the use of our reference laser which makes it easy to rapidly identify and track a target. The IRIS also has a remarkably high resolution display which makes it much easier to use than many competing products on the market.

Q: Is this real night vision? Does it work in total darkness?

A: The IRIS is a legitimate night vision device that works in complete and total darkness. It uses a technology known as near-infrared illumination. The illuminator and the CMOS sensor are both optimized for the 850nm wavelength which is invisible to humans and animals (but can be seen by specialized sensors like those used in the IRIS)

Q: Can the illuminator penetrate solid materials and/or other objects like tinted glass?

A: The near-infrared wavelength used by the IRIS is very close to the visible portion of the light spectrum. As such, you can expect the infrared energy to behave very similarly to reflected light. It will be able to penetrate glass, certain fabrics, and any tinted/privacy film which does not block the infrared spectrum.

Q: Is this mountable to a helmet or other items?

A: The IRIS can be mounted to a standard tripod using the included 1/4" threading. No other forms of mounting are officially supported.

Q: What is the difference between this and a thermal camera?

A: Thermal cameras and near-infrared cameras like the IRIS both use the same sub-portion of the electromagnetic spectrum known as infrared. However, devices like the IRIS are optimized for the shorter wavelength portion of the spectrum whereas thermal cameras are optimized for the longer wavelength portion. Shorter wavelength infrared behaves more similarly to light. Longer wavelength infrared behaves more similarly to radio waves. 

Q: What color is the night vision?

A: If the illuminator is engaged, the IRIS will only record in pure monochromatic black and white. If the illuminator is not engaged, and the IRIS is being used in low light conditions, the color of the image will depend entirely on atmospheric conditions. This can mean the image will have a greenish hue, bluish hue, a reddish hue, or some combination of the three.
