Please do not comment in this thread unless you actually own the device. No speculation only first hand account please. If you want to troll please visit the fishing forum.

So i'm about to head out on another hunting trip on Jan 9-12 I plan on putting it through its paces on deer and hog. The last trip I managed to get some great video at about 45 yards and 100 yards. I'm very excited about the potential with this scope. after this hunt I plan on looking for a dedicated 308 AR for this scope to sit on top.

25- 45 yards



10 yards



50 yard sight in at range.




Tips and tricks ------ if anyone has any tips I will post them here.

1: I find it better to use the smartphone app to focus the device rather then the eye piece for some reason I can not get the thing focused when looking through the view finder perhaps i'm nearsighted
2:



Issues

1: Compass
2: speedometer
3: altitude
4: Wandering Cross Hairs
5: Flicker in night Mode
6: cross hairs in video record

Interesting on the firmware not being there, hope they put up the new stuff.

Other than issues already being identified in the X-Sight thread from Sachal, how are you doing on batteries? I tried 3 different types of rechargeables, no go. They don't last 15 minutes. I'm now running Energizer Lithium Ultimate's. Haven't checked to see how long they last, but much longer than the rechargeables.

I also have a problem where the menu items words/letters get messed up. I had the 'date and time' say just 'an'. Haven't seen that since.

I haven't shot a lot of video, but have noticed some video's that are out of focus on the 5x, but maybe the shooters perspective, setup. I noticed in your first video above, the deer is out of focus, but the grass behind the deer looks to be in focus.

yup it is difficult to focus on one object looking through the view finder at least for me.

I have been using cheap Rayovac I got them on holiday sale they last about 2 hours with wifi on.

I never had the issue with the text.

How to update your firmware:



If you have tried everything to playback your recorded files on a Windows PC and still cant get sound or smooth video, try converting the file:



5-18x Night video demonstration - Cloudy night / 92% humidity / 50 degrees light wind



Best settings that I have found thus far:

Resolution of camera system at 720p @ 60 FPS to reduce lag on viewfinder or screen squiggle when panning
Low light amplification
Energizer Advanced or Ultimate Lithium batteries
Wifi / GPS / Geotagging OFF

Thus far the best distance I can achieve with the 5-18x at night with a UNV20IR is 180 - 200 yards. After 200 yards the light falls off and it is too dark for me to take a safe shot with cows and other structure on property.

If you have issues I may wait till after my hunt before upgrading.

Got it.
Compass, speedometer, altitude adressed in this firmware update.
Recticle still wandering
Now up to 10x on the zoom

On the update if it gets stuck @ 100% ATN stated to try to power down with the hard button. If tht dowsnt work (in my case) pull the batteries and wait 30 seconds, pull sd card. power back up and it will update.

Now showing firmware v200 on mine.
