Welcome to Optics Trade debates. In each episode, we talk about a different topic and try to answer the most common questions we receive about it. Today, we are going to talk about the differences between night vision goggles and night vision binoculars.
Night vision goggles are used with a head strap, on which the goggles can be mounted. Most goggles include a head strap, but some need to be bought separately. The police and the military usually mount NV goggles on their helmets.
Because of the 1x magnification, NV goggles can be used while running, walking, flying a helicopter…
The main advantage of NV goggles is that they are able to be used like normal eyesight. The main disadvantage is the lack of visible details on long-range observations.
NV binoculars can’t be used on close range but are really good for long-range observations.
The goggles are usually smaller and lighter because they usually have 20mm objective lenses.
