Holosun Thermal & Night Vision Review

They actually fixed the thermals and now It can detect thermal signatures from 300 meters away:

US companies will have to start dropping their insane prices for nods/thermals or the chinese are going to dominate the entire civilian market

      No, he's even more gay. Source: Josh used to work at my LGS and he was always a weird, arrogant prick.

      For something that's roughly the size of Romeo 8t and only like $1600 that seems reasonable. And if it gets these other companies to bring prices down then even better

        can't wait for this to turn out to be a sightmark-tier sack of shit and prices to not "come down" because as it turns out putting a quality imager together with western labor costs money

          Obviously we won't know for sure until they hit the shelves but if it's at least as usable as shown in the video then great. And if western competition can't beat the price then they're just gonna lose out to the bugmen

          lol you clearly don't know the thermal market, new 640 core devices are now 3k thanks to the Chinese, meanwhile FLIR went years and years without selling to civilians.

          GucciBlack folk always moving the goalposts and throwing a little hissyfit when non-autistic losers get to play with their toys for reasonable prices. You have every reason to want chinks to push westerners to innovate yet you’re here licking domestic manufacturer taint because their margin just got thinner

              And no, I’m not moving the goalposts when you made such a stupid fricking comparison. RC2 would have cost $1800 if it weren’t for competition. RC3 is going to fail and drop because there’s superior cans for a third of the price once again.
              Competition drops prices and improves quality.

            Iray (Chinese company) is the only company that sells a 1280 thermal sensor to civilians: https://youtu.be/F7E-UmvsfXg?si=21mKbwn6dQKSRouu
            So they actually know how to make high quality thermals.

            probably because thermal imaging doesn't require a magic factory like nightvision does.

      Anon how far can you positively ID a person in a field with just your eyes? How about at night?

    The thermals were never broken. 60 yard range was made up by seething poorgays that don’t understand how thermals work.

      It was made up by people who seethe about Chinese made stuff and Holosun is a lightning rod for that. For whatever reason, the Holosun thermal causes tons of seethe even though it's very far from the first Chinese thermal to hit the US market. Iray is incredibly popular for professional hunters. There was never any reason to think that a 256x core device made by the Chinese was only gonna have 60m of range when older Iray devices were already doing way more than that years ago with that same sensor and thermal tech/software is only getting cheaper, longer range, and clearer.

    The TL;DR is that the optics are only good for defending a position. For navigation you use your head nods and for scanning you use a handheld thermal.

      what you really want is helmet mounted thermal paired with a pvs-14, a thermal fusion setup like the ENVG, or an e-coti (iray actually offers a thermal fusion option as well as a surprisingly decent e-coti called the Jerry-C).

        Thermal overlay has its uses, but ultimately, it is just a wire frame mode for the world. Use it in a forest, and every tree is outlined. White hot thermal vision is much better for spotting warm objects in the dark. They stand out like beacons.

          That's what happens when you turn it up too much. tuned correctly it won't outline stuff that's the same temp as the environment that aggressively. This is also where mounting something like an iRay MH-25 on your helmet. The point is that having some form of helmet mounted thermal is really really good for detection.

      Sounds perfect for civilians. I watched the whole video, I think it would also be good for scanning a compound in a LARP scenario.

      Less cut and dry than that, a lot of new helmet mounted thermals can navigate as well as more normal NVGs can. Much better for environments with zero light in them. The downsides compared to regular NVGs are much higher battery consumption, zero lag/nuc, lack of ability to see through glass, no ability to passive aim and inability to see light/IR. Ideally you need both, but some of the old mantras about thermal vs NVGs are no longer true, get whichever one is more suitable for your environment first.

      Isn’t that true for all thermal scopes? I have a fairly good thermal scope. I guess I could navigate with it, but I sure wouldn’t want to.

      Optics are to help shoot your gun. Scanning and identifying helps you shoot. There are other tools for navigating at night.
