Ok I seen that tx hogs posted you tube videos showing the xsight. My question is are there any videos of is actually being used at night? I'm considering getting one and like the wifi connect and firmware videos but where's the kills. Make me a believer

I'm hunting tonight with the 5x version.

Not sure about making you a believer but I'll at least have some footage of ATNs provided iR and night viewing capabilities to share.

It probably be more successful on top of Ole Snot in your hunting place that is jam packed with hogs smile

The 3x version is up for sale in the classifieds if anyboody is wanting to make their own videos

Tx hogs here is the deal I got a fancy 6.8. I got rid of the photon. I'm looking into either the newer photon or the xsight can you give you opinions?

Have hunted the X-Sight quite a bit over the past few weeks. Haven't been recording much. Own the XT also and posted a recent hog kill with it. Both are nice starter scopes, but the X-Sight has daytime color, better resolution and HD recording. Warts and all with the yet to be resolved issues....X-Sight, easy winner. Flipside, it will sit in the closet if they don't get the reticle in the recording soon.

25-06 -

I believe in all DFW has to say as we've shared notes on digital for many years.

Tonight is my first opportunity to field the Xsight at night so I'll have some thoughts and video for you tomorrow.

25-06,
I've got some night time kill footage, I will be posting in the next couple days, in addition to my hog kill posted here: http://youtu.be/JPkk_HxVq_A . Hands down the X-sight is better. I've hunted with both the photon 3.5 and 5x.

R. Edwards, I appreciate your comments and kill footage, but you referenced a comparison to the photon 3.5 and the 5x. Those are both older models of the Photon. Have you had any experience with the newer Photon XT 4.6 that you can relate the x-sight to?

Negative, I haven't tried the XT version. Though I have heard from others that have. They also prefer the X-sight. There are just so many features currently available, and some yet to come for the x-sight. I've had some minor glitches with mine, but they should get worked out with updates to the software. Also, I'm an end user of this product and in no way associated with ATN.

Does your glitches include a hard freeze of the screen while recording? I just had one of those an hour ago.

.30 caliber rifle

Looks like tonight will be a little less than half moon, I'll get video without IR, with ATN's included iR850, and some with my UNV20IR.

No sir, I have not experienced that.

Alright, so I spent an evening with the 5x X-sight.



I could spot a ton of deer in open fields throughout the night but couldn't register them on the scope - I'd say the deer were a good 250+ yards away. I had a pretty good video (at least 10 minutes of large bucks and does) but it was corrupted by the low battery error issue.

Thanks for the review Ben. I sure appreciate hearing the honest opinion of someone that has a lot of good scope experience. I see a lot of shortcomings with this scope and I suspected that would be the case. I am sorry for everyone that had high expectations. Maybe a lot of it can be fixed with software revisions, but the distance limitation is probably going to stay with it. Not being able to pick up deer at 250 yds does not speak well of trying to find coyotes coming in to a call. They're a lot smaller and harder to see. Sounds like there is a lot of development that still needs to happen before this scope is very useful at night.

lets hope they get the issues fixed, I want mine for almost all night hunting, and not at all impressed with HTXH's video above, with all the issues it renders it close to unusable for my situations

Not sure when others ordered theirs, but I ordered at the end of March, still don't have it or know when its coming
