Sightmark just released the Photon XT 4.6X. High hopes for this little unit. Just got word that the first units arrive tomorrow. I will keep everyone posted! $500 MAP and supposedly a 640x480 display.

SWEET!!!!!!

The first production models were okay performers, can you give us a quick and dirty on improvements?

Also what is the warranty period?

Ok, just looked through a unit. It's on another level compared to the 3.5X. The display is much bigger, resolution is obviously much higher, the unit is lighter. All digital controls.
What you see on the display is what the video out sends including reticle and icons. It has a battery indicator. Red green and white reticle colors. I can already tell this unit is going to be a big hit.

I would assume it's 3 years like all Sightmark night vision, but I will double check.

Hey! What's the trade in value on a 5X?

Looks like your doubler will work on this one too. up

Also, the brightness/contrast control has a 1-15 value unlike the photon 3.5x.

That's correct! Same objective lens size and housing so it will fit just the same.

I just went back and looked through the papers that came with my first Photon, I recalled seeing "Limited Lifetime Warranty" on something.

Sure enough you get an insert (warranty notice) with the Photon that says Limited Lifetime but if you read the paperwork and their website they clearly state that Night Vision and Digital Systems are 3 years.

Also can you double check that the PhotonXT has independent controls of brightness AND contrast.

Thanks

I would imagine it is since it has the colored reticle and it is displayed in the video out. Neither were present in previous models. up

HTH--- Will you be doing a comparative review? Maybe 1st released versions vs the newer one?
