It would be much appreciated if some kind soul would grace this article with a couple of images (or links to such images) that offer a comparison between how real-life night vision imagery usually looks like, how real-life infrared imagery usually looks like (to distinguish it from non-IR night vision), and then how some of the most common examples of fictional portrayals of either of the aforementioned.

I am deeply concerned about this page.

Charge Coupled Devices are a form of image sensor... not night vision equipment*. The core of common night vision systems is an image intensifier tube. They are completely different technologies.

  • =Yes there are a few kinds of low light CCD's, including ones coupled directly to image intensifier tubes by fiber optic bundles. But this is not what is used in night vision goggles or most other popular depictions.

A serious rewrite is in order IMHO. This page is just plain wrong.

NV Gs don't white out or cause a painful blinding sensation when exposed to a bright light they will shut off or auto dim to compensate
