Our Review of the Best Night Vision Cameras/Attachments
*The following guide may earn from clicks on links to products, but we only recommend products we tested & loved!
We tested 24 of the most popular night vision cameras in the market, including models from Verkada, Sionyx Aurora, & Stanley. We found the best options based on the following criteria:
Most night vision cameras below $500 don’t have the higher magnification settings seen with regular ones, but we did find exceptions in the market. Typical magnification settings are between 3x-5x, although you can often find cameras with 6x magnification as well.
Night vision cameras operate differently compared to regular optical ones. Some of the best cameras will go into true 4K resolution and offer you some of the crispest video footage possible; the better the resolution, the better your accuracy and ability to identify your target.
The best night vision cameras & attachments for your scope will also allow you to use them perfectly during the day. Sometimes manufacturers claim that their product can work during daytime hours as a gimmick rather than a workable feature.
Cameras & attachments that are weatherproof are usually great choices in terms of value for money. They can be depended on even if you take them into the wilderness during inclement weather. For certain types of hunts, this is almost a necessity given animal migration patterns or seasonal weather.
