“I did some testing with the Hogster-R 35mm from Bering Optics. The build quality is fantastic, and the picture quality for a 384×288 core is fantastic. Many thermals suffer in high humidity but I tested the Hogster up to nearly 100% and the image quality still was very impressive. For the person looking for a compact thermal scope that is simple to operate, the Hogster R thermals are a fantastic value. Add the fact it could also work as a very effective scanner, and you will see why I bought one myself. “ Korey Kirschenmann – Prostaff – Night Goggles
