Xenonics has recently begun shipping the SuperVision, touted as one of the most powerful night-vision scopes in the world. It is in fact said to be superior to military-grade (Gen 3) scopes, with higher clarity, better resolution and further range. It also has 2 to 8x zoom, which with many other scopes may require a magnifier add-on to achieve similar performance. The SuperVision does have two drawbacks though, the foremost of which is the fact that it is handheld, unable to be mounted to a helmet or gun. And despite having superior resolution, its CCD sensor still only records 380,000 pixels. One SuperVision costs $1,399.
