This scanner has it all! Great picture and I highly recommend it.
I like it.
I'm still playing with the features but my initial impression is good. The image quality is good and it's not too big. My only downside that I might say is the rubber eye cup doesn't rotate easily like my pulsar did. I'm a lefty and it firmly planted in the right hand position. Also the diopter adjustment could be as stiff as the focus ring is. It is fairly easy to turn so might get moved in your pocket. Other than that I like what I'm seeing so far. Also outdoor legacy shipped lightning fast.
IRay ZH38 Monocular
I purchased the IRay ZH38 monocular from Outdoor Legacy for hunting coyotes. The Outdoor Legacy team was very professional, knowledgeable, and pleasant to work with. They allowed me to feel comfortable that I was purchasing a good product. The IRay ZH38 comes packed with features and has a very clear screen. It took a bit of time and patience getting the settings where I wanted them but it was easy working through the Shortcut menu to make the adjustments. The screen settings now match very closely the same settings on my thermal scope so transitioning between the monocular and scope is easy because they are the same. The 19mm and 38mm lenses are each very clear and easy to transition from one to the other. The 1.6 power on the 19mm lense gives a wide field of view for scanning and helped me spot coyotes the first time taking it out. The video function is very clear as well. I have a video of a coyote up close and it is awesome! This monocular has already improved my hunting especially since I don't scan with my scope any more. The monocular allows me to scan 360 degrees with little effort and can be done quickly which is needed when hunting coyotes. Thank you Outdoor Legacy for having this product in stock and getting to me quickly! Great device!
Well Worth the Money
My expectations have been exceeded on this unit. Worth every penny IMO. Years ago I was speaking with Jason at Outdoor Legacy and told him that one of the items that was on my wish list was optical zoom on a thermal unit so you dont lose any image quality when you bump up the magnification. Having 1.6x and 3.2x base magnification in the 640 resolution in one unit is like having two units for the price of one. The 1.6x base mag give a huge field of view and the 3.2x is the perfect amount of zoom when you need to see further.
The unit comes with a great carrying case and much to our suprise it came with an extra battery. I have tested the battery life and the 10+ hour run time is no joke.
If you got the money to spend then I would strongly suggest this unit and I don't know how anyone would be dissapointed.
IRAY pushed technology and the Thermal Market
This scanner is Legit. The image quality is excellent yet slightly different than the MK1 Scope. My favorite settings are Highlight and Red Hot however, when the temperature was warm the the other night, it was Black Hot that provided the best image. Its hard to imagine a Thermal working like a Variable Rifle Scope yet that is essentially what is going on. Two distinct Base Powers of magnification without loss of image quality when cranking to the higher power. You still have Digital magnification increases at each Base Power level if you wish to zoom in further. I haven't needed to increase the zoom digitally to identify my targets yet as the optical zoom on the front Bezel ring gave adequate magnification while maintaining that amazing 640 image. I have been running the 2x picture in picture feature which is awesome. I have the small box to look at for a magnified, detailed image. This scanner is a Hunter's best friend that allows you to get off the rifle and provide increased comfort on Stand while glassing the fields and edges.
