The photon is still a good choice for the money.
I've been looking at this one on-line myself, about all I can swing these days is an entry-level unit. Given the problems being experienced with the X-Sight, I'd be inclined to opt for something with less bells and whistles and *gasp* software. I'm pretty sure the Photon will have software, but all the complications of video recording and other stuff seems to be the Achilles heel of the X-Sight. Would I be correct in thinking that the Photon offers better optical performance in lieu of all the bells and whistle the X-Sight has? The extra features just don't appeal to me, really...
Another thing I noticed was a comment just the other day about the makers of the Photon offering very good customer service. That's another thing that is important to me, so I would like to know if that impression is correct.
I'm here to give and receive knowledge, not affirmation or adoration. If you don't like it, mierda dura
