Nigh vision scope for under a ton at Aldi

This week Aldi are offering a first generation night vision monocular with IR spotter beam for a penny under 100 - http://aldi.co.uk/uk/html/offers/offers_week40Thursday09.htm?WT.z_src=main .

essential for when we're processing film ( yes we're still doing loads of that! ) therefore, I reckon, a tax deductable whatsit, don't you agree?

I must dig out my negs from here:

Took some pics in 92? when the place was just a wreck, a couple were really good but overexposed, I'd like to get them hand printed to a decent size to give to them.

overexposed isn't nearly as much of a problem as under ( unless they're transparencies)

I had some prints done at the time by a Chinese guy I used to use off Clerkenwell Rd, he got them just right, there were two I really liked I had one done as a selenium and the other gold if I remember right. No idea where they are now.

And on the subject of exposure they're doing thermals for pennies as well.

Aaah - black and white - Danny Chau

they stopped doing 'proper' printing a few years back, just inkjets now. I have BW done by Robin Bell, we often work together on projects, he does the monochrome, I do the colour.

That's the man, he were good.

Don't get over excited. Its more than likely a load of rubbish. I bought one back from the states a couple of years ago and it was hardly worth having.

A decent (Gen 2) one would set you back a minimum of 1500. This one would offer you a snowstorm with the occasional pair of glinting eyes.

quite a few soldiers on a forum rate them quite well, even though its 1st Gen they recon its a fair bit of kit for the price.

I got them the last time they came out and rate them for rabbits with the IR on them but with an IR filter on my lamp it`s like night and day !!

They are good for creeping about the countryside in the dark. I spotted someone passing on the otherside of a wood from me with full beam on their vehicle and I thought it must be a farmer, then the lights went out and for 5-10 minutes nothing, so I switched on the NV and scanned the woods.
Lo and behold I spotted a light through it that I couldn`t see with my eyes and they seemed to be lamping the trees for roosting pheasant and as it was owned by the farmer I was lamping rabbits/foxes for I decided to give them a warning.
I fired an un-modded .222 into a bale ! The light went out and the vehicle ended up driving off with the lights out Laughing

Good bits of kit IMHO.

Hi

I bought a Lidl version last Christmas for about the same price and that is excellent! Add a LED IR torch (Spiderfire?) form Ebay and you can light up an area of about 60-70 mtrs

But go to cheap, and what happens?
