Review: MINOX MD 80 ZR Spotting Scope for sport shooters

The MD 80 ZR by MINOX is a spotting scope that was developed specifically with sport shooters and law enforcement in mind. We took a closer look, putting the scope through its paces on the shooting range. The video gives you the low down on the features and specs, as well as how well it works specifically for sport shooters.

Field Trialling the MINOX DTC 390 Wildlife Camera by TETRIX Ecology

Wildlife cameras are rapidly gaining in popularity as a valuable tool for passive wildlife monitoring. As a professional ecologist, itís easy to see how they could be used for ecological monitoring, for example, determining occupation of a badger sett or otter holt, or even establishing the presence of rare species, for example, the Scottish wildcat. Clearly the value of a wildlife camera stems from the fact that unlike a surveyor, a wildlife camera can remain in the field for days, weeks, even months in some instances.

It was during a recent training and networking event in Perthshire, that we finally gained some initial hands-on experience with camera trapping for pine marten and Scottish wildcat (see our blog from 8 March 2017). So, with our curiosity suitably piqued and recognising the onset of a busy survey season, where such a tool could add value to our services, we made a decision to speculatively invest in our first wildlife camera. However, with a veritable buffet of cameras to choose from, we initially struggled to sift our way through the various options and features on offer from a wide range of manufacturers.

The word 'budget' can only be used to describe the price - the MINOX ZX5i 2-10x50 riflescope reviewed

Simple but reliable optics with assured performance and a moderate price tag often get overlooked in reviews, but one scope I have come to rely on recently currently sits on my .22 rimfire rifle for general pest control duties. The MINOX ZX5i 2-10x50 is well suited to this gun, with a wide field of view accessible at short distances on 2x magnification and 10x available when wound up for longer, more preciese shots. I have tested this scope in both the available reticles and far prefer the #4 design shown here as it remains far more visible in the infinite varitey of light condition in which the .22 rimfire must perform.
