Anyone heard anything about the new 4K Wraith? I know they were introduced at Shot Show and production hadn't started yet. With the Covid mess who knows when that might happen but I'm not seeing anything anywhere about them except the same couple of Shot Show videos.

If it is better than the current HD 4-32x50, it might just be one heckuva scope. I love the current version Wraith for what it is and within its price range.

Yeah, I've read lots of reviews on the HD 4-32x50 and have considered buying one. However, what I have been able to find out about the new 4K is higher resolution, 3-24x50 which would provide a wider field of view and also the 4K is supposed to record sound now. $300 higher than the current model, I'm wondering if the improvements justify that much extra money.

Just for consideration, and definitely not apples-apples. However, consider the pros-cons to a typical mid-tier video camera. There is no doubt 4k has a much more detailed image. I also think 3-24 is a more useful magnification range. 32x sounds cool on the current Wraith, but you will need one heckuvan illuminator to ever sight a target that needs that magnification. On the other side of the coin, there are some disadvantages to 4k. Firstly, if you are recording in 4k, you are going to need a lot more storage. Secondly, your battery life is going to be greatly diminished based on my experiences with a Hero7 Black vs a Hero4 Silver 4k-vs-1080p. The 4k will likely also run a bit hotter. If you are going to be editing video, you will need a more competent computer to get it done in 4k.

With that said, the Wraith 4k will be an updated, and more future-proof, camera with a more useful zoom range IMO. As I mentioned the Hero cameras above. I kept my Hero4 Silver because I thought it might be handy to have 2 GoPros or even that I might prefer the Hero4 for certain applications. That never proved to be the situation and I eventually gave the Hero4 to my youngest kid.

I love my my Wraith but the biggest downside is the weight, it weighs a ton. I wonder if the new version will weigh less. A minor issue is the field of view is small as I think the low magnification is more like 6x-7x. Sounds like that will be improved.

The Wraith 4K production was officially delayed by Sightmark in April during the height of the shutdown. It is now scheduled to be released later this fall assuming things continue as normal and our world doesn't fall apart with lock downs again. I also wouldn't not be surprised to see a new feature or two added to the Wraith 4K by the time it hits the market, but we'll have to wait and see.
