Similar to the Sightmark Photon 5×42 Digital Night Vision Riflescope, the Photon-S 3.5×42 is a hybrid night vision riflescope that offers users a bright, crisp picture during the day and low light conditions. Delivering exceptional definition and clarity with its high camera resolution of 768×576, shooters can experience the great outdoors closer than ever before.

“The new Photon-S 3.5×42 is the most highly anticipated unit we’ve had in 2013. It’s the first time we’ve been able to offer a fully digital day/night riflescope that retails at, or below, high quality Gen 1 night vision riflescopes,” said International Sales Manager Chase Stephens. “Compared to an average of 600 g’s in Gen 1 units, the Photon-S 3.5×42 is capable of withstanding 1,000 g’s of heavy recoil, allowing for use with higher caliber rifles.”

Featuring a Dot-Duplex reticle for quick target acquisition of fast-moving targets, the Photon-S 3.5×42 is ideal for hog and varmint hunting. The lower 3.5x magnification allows for a wider field-of-view to effectively scan and acquire objects, while the 42mm objective lens magnification is perfect for longer distance viewing. Complete with a high-power 150mW LED infrared illuminator, the illumination makes it suitable for ambient light conditions.

Its durable 30mm tube permits users to attach most after-market mounting solutions, allowing the riflescope to be attached to any weapons system. Equipped with a single-switch operation and an intuitive, easy-to-use interface, shooters can begin viewing images within seconds. The Sightmark Photon-S 3.5×42 Digital Night Vision Riflescope includes a weaver rail for attachment of additional accessories. Also featuring a video output, it enables users to have access to the output plug that offers recording capabilities.
