I’ve played with the menu and took a look around on a crappy weather day.

I hope to put it on a rifle and hunt Wednesday night with it.

This is not the 640 unit, this is the 384 res. 4x native mag (super tight field of view), 12
Micron unit.

RL42 is the model name / sku

A few screen captures from the onboard video recorder of hogs in my sights - all hogs were 75 to 160 yards away

Still hunting this :

Video isn’t clear or clean , lots of artifacts for unknown reasons. Other than that it has served me well.

Currently on my bolt action :

Super Hogster or this one? Pretty big price difference between the two considering the resolution is the same with internal video on both. Also much larger footprint on the rifle than Super Hogster.

Both are strong units , this Iray has the option to run a separate range finders (currently being cleared by the FDA for import to the US) so there is that .

It really comes down to magnification (field of view) and image detail level preferences

If it had 3k and only 3k then super Hogster it is and no looking back

If i had 4.4K and money wasn’t tight then I’d say you could still go SH and a boat load of ammo or if the image is the main event for you then Iray

It isn’t a huge difference (image) but the nod certainly goes to the Iray for better image quality
