Pulsar Digex C50 Digital Day & Night Vision Riflescope.

The Pulsar Digex C50 Riflescope offers different lens and sensor operating modes to guarantee the best results at any time of day. In the morning and at twilight, during the day and after midnight, the image is clear and detailed. In deep twilight, when the human eye is already unable to discern details of observed objects, the Digex C50 displays a bright image with correct colour rendering, prolonging hunting time into the night.

The Digex C50 has the best sensitivity in its class for infrared spectrum (night sensitivity), including a wavelength range of 900950 nm. The device is highly effective when paired with an invisible IR illuminator. This makes the Digex C50 a perfect tool for detecting targets such as wild boar, deer, and elk at distances ranging from 500 meters. The Digex C50 offers visual aesthetics on any hunting weapon. From the outside, the riflescope resembles a classic day sight in a 30mm housing. This form factor provides flexibility for mounting the scope on hunting weapons using proven ring solutions.

TFB Review: Conclusion – Pulsar Digex C50

I think the Pulsar C50 Digex provides excellent value for money. Priced at around €1,350 including the optional IR light, it gives anyone with the slightest interest in getting to know night vision hunting a fairly cheap entry to the technology with low risk. More experienced users or gearheads won’t be disappointed either.

Pulsar’s previous model (Pulsar Digex N455) is still holding up its value on the second-hand market, and I predict that the C50 will be even more popular as it can be used as a colour day scope as well (where legislation permits).

A great combination for any hunter would be to buy the Digex C50 and a hand-held thermal monocular. A thermal to find the animal and the C50 riflescope to identify and shoot. If you want to stay with Pulsar as a brand, the new Axion XM30F or Axion 2 XQ35 thermal spotters is what you should be looking at.

TFB got one of the first pre-production models for the review and I was warned there could be issues, but I’m still running on the original firmware and have no reported issues.

The battery life is probably the unit’s biggest drawback, but you could use an external power pack or buy a few extra spares if you know you’re going to be out for longer periods of time. With a weight of 1.35 kg, it’s not exactly light either, but most hunters will probably use a setup including a bi/tripod so not sure it’s that much of an issue in the field?

I used a similar modern model from a competitor to benchmark against the C50, and what really made the Pulsar C50 come out as a winner was the overall build quality and its ability to automatically adjust the image in difficult conditions. Pulsar have done wonders to the internal image processing, and where their previous model (Digex N455) and the competitor would give you white-outs from reflecting IR, the C50 automatically cancels it. There’s some magic going on with the internal image processing for sure.

Overall there was also very little lag in Pulsar’s image. As always I encourage you to look at as many devices as possible side-by-side. I know this can be hard in reality but look for dealers that offer this opportunity rather than the cheapest deal online. Hopefully, you’ll end up noticing the same things as I did, then I know I did my job as a reviewer.

Key Features

  • 24/7 Use

The use of different lens and sensor operating modes guarantees the best results at any time of day. In the morning and at twilight, during the day and after midnight, the image is clear and detailed. The riflescope discerns game trophy qualities and peculiarities of behavior in Full HD resolution, providing the hunter with the maximum possible information to make the right decision and take a shot.

  • Full-Colour Imaging from Sunset Till Dusk in The Colour Twilight Mode

In deep twilight, when the human eye is already unable to discern details of observed objects, the Digex C50 displays a bright image with correct colour rendering, prolonging hunting time into the night.

  • Realistic Daytime Colour Rendering

The Digex C50 combines the full-colour imaging of classic daytime optics with ultimate digital functionality. So conservative day hunting becomes high tech and a usual day sight is simply unnecessary.

  • Over 500 Meter Night Viewing Range

The Digex C50 has the best sensitivity in its class for infrared spectrum (night sensitivity), including a wavelength range of 900–950 nm. The device is highly effective when paired with invisible IR illuminators. This makes the Digex C50 a perfect tool for detecting targets such as wild boar, deer and elk at distances ranging from 500 meters.

  • Up to 10 Hours of Battery Life on a Single Charge

The Digex C50 is powered with two rechargeable batteries: one built-in with a capacity of 4.9 Ah, the other replaceable with a capacity of 2 Ah. A single charge guarantees up to 10 hours of battery life, which covers the time of active use of the scope for a hunt. The embossment on the body of the replaceable battery for accurate determination of the correct position makes it possible to quickly and confidently replace a flat battery with a new one in complete darkness by touch.

  • Stream Vision 2. Wi-Fi Integration with iOS and Android Devices

The built-in WiFi module connects the device with either Android or iOS smartphones using the Stream Vision 2 mobile application. This combination opens up a wide range of options: wireless device software updates, real-time image transmission to the mobile device screen, remote control digital functions and much more. Users registered in the application are provided with cloud storage space for photos and videos taken with the device.

  • Classic Design. Mounting on Standard 30 mm Rings

The Digex C50 offers visual aesthetics on any hunting weapon. From the outside the riflescope resembles a classic day sight in a 30mm housing. This form factor provides flexibility for mounting the scope on hunting weapons using proven ring solutions.

  • 5 Shooting Profiles / 50 Zeroing Distances

The Digex C50 offers a choice of ten different reticles that vary in colour, configuration, and function – direct shot and ballistic, scalable (FFP) and non-scalable (SFP). Zeroing results are stored in five shooting profiles. Each profile can hold up to 10 zeroing distances.

  • High-Precision Aiming with the “Picture-in-Picture” Mode

The “Picture-in-picture” function enables the shooter to display a high-precision aiming frame. Occupying only 10% of the total display area, the frame contains an enlarged image of the target and a reticle, which provides the user with a more detailed image of the aiming area and gives visual control of the entire field of view.

  • High Caliber Recoil Rated up to: .375H&H, 12 Gauge and 9.3×64

Digex digital riflescopes are highly shock-resistant and can be used with rifled hunting weapons of calibers 9.3×64, .30-06, .300, .375H&H, etc., as well as with smooth-bore and pneumatic weapons.

  • Variable Magnification from 3.5x to 14x

The base magnification of Digex C50 riflescopes increases fourfold – 3.5x to 14x. The zoom changes either gradually in 2x step or continuously to set the ideal ratio of magnification and visible field of view for specific conditions. The high resolution sensor guarantees the possibility of accurate aiming and long-range shots over the entire magnification range – the level of detail is sustained even at maximum magnification.

  • High Contrast HD AMOLED Display

1024×768 HD AMOLED display has enhanced color rendering, power saving, a high contrast image and quick-response, providing clear and smooth images for on-the-move observation or in cold conditions.

  • SumLight enhanced sensitivity software

The SumLight function increases sensor sensitivity which enables passive observation (without IR illuminator) in low light conditions and at night. The software automatically activates algorithms (such as adding adjacent pixel signals of a sensor, frame addition), thus increasing the sensitivity of the device while maintaining image quality.

  • Wide-Angle Eyepiece for Comfortable Observation

The wide-angle eyepiece (29.5°) and wide viewing angle of the HD quality AMOLED display provide comfortable image perception and the absence of the keyhole effect with safe removal of the exit pupil of 50mm. Observation with the Digex C50 does not strain your eyes and enables the hunter to fully concentrate on the hunting process.

  • Photo and Video Recording

Upgrade usual night video recording to the new experience of full-Colour recordings for day and night hunts. All it takes to take a photo or start recording is a touch of a button.

  • Remote Firmware Update
