This is going to be a somewhat lengthy post and review. I plan to do a lot of testing and shooting with this in the upcoming months. Right now I have been on the waiting list for a while and was able to buy in at reduced preorder pricing and I got notification yesterday to get my payment in because the latest version after shotshow are starting to trickle in and they expected that mine should ship either late this week or next at the latest depending on how things go. I'm not sure how many people have heard about the ATN X sight scope or what it is, but they are a relatively new digital Day/Night scope, which is the main thing I wanted it for, and while it has a host of other features, the main "extra" that I am interested in is the video/photo recording because I think it would be neat to be able to record a hunt or range session, and one thought that has crossed my mind, God forbid if someone were to have broken into my house and forced me to defend myself, could be seen in the same category as a dashcam if you're in a wreck that could prove without any doubt of the situation. While ATN isn't marketing it as a CYA tool, I could still see how that may could help in that situation. Anyway, I had been interested in a Pulsar N750 and N550 digital night vision since they have been out for a few years, but the $1500 price tag kept them out of my reach, but it looks like ATN has came out with a model somewhat similar at a much lower price point. I'm not going to lie about it, it has a lot of built-in features that I'm sure would be desirable to many, though I don't see myself using many of them, but they're available nonetheless, so that's good. I don't often use the rear window wiper on our car either, but it's still there when I do need it or want to use it. But here is a list of some of the features. It is primarily a Day/Night scope which means exactly that. It's like a night vision scope that you can use any time day or night and is my main reason for wanting it. Color image in the daylight, or user selectable green/black regular night vision color, or black and white night vision, and to me, I like the black/white better. It has video recording and photo snapshots in high def 1080p, one shot zero, GPS, compass, elevation, geo waypoints, elevation, speed, scope gyro, wifi for connecting external devices and for sharing images or the specific sight picture you are looking at right now if working in a team, and a few other things. It will accept up to a 32gb micro sd memory card for storing data, has micro USB and hdmi ports as well. It comes with a detachable 850 nm IR light that uses CR123 batteries like most standard weapon lights use, and the scope itself runs off of Four AA batteries. I have heard reviews stating that if you're running a lot of different software programs at the same time, battery life is pretty low at a few hours max, but others say that if you're using just the scope/crosshairs that battery life is extended upwards towards 7 or 8 hours using lithium batteries. I'm going to try to use Duracell Duralock 2400 mAh rechargeable batteries instead of the expensive disposables to see how they work. I have a ton of the lower power rechargeable Rayovacs, but to my knowledge the 2400 mAh is the most powerful rechargeable out there and according to Energizers published data, their lithium Ion batteries are barely more at 3000 mAh so these rechargables should provide me with nearly as much power*. Here is a link to the ATN website for anyone wanting to see pics and video and specs. http://www.atncorp.com/x-sight-night-vision-rifle-scope-5-18x As mentioned, I am still waiting to get mine, but here are a few videos I have found on youtube from some folks who got some of the beta units if you're interested in seeing it. *One quick note, in early versions the crosshair is not visible in the video, but the newest firmware update does show the crosshair.
