MINOX, as you may already know, is the company perhaps made most famous by the James Bond spy cameras. Recently, the “Schweizer Jäger” (Swiss Hunter) magazine tested the MINOX NV 351 night-vision monocular. In the following review they bring light into the darkness.
As I seem to remember, in the early 1990s night vision devices were generally offered in the hunting magazines and journals for horrendous prices. They usually had an unpleasant smell of sticky rubber and originated from somewhere in Russia. Since I was unsure of legal implications and health issues were not clear, I decided to leave them well alone.
