Bestguarder WG-50 6×50 mm HD Digital Night Vision Monocular Review

night vision monocular is a great choice for hunting or watching animals, as it illuminates the object up to 1,150 feet away.

We found it to be user-friendly, with clearly marked buttons and easy adjustment control.

This monocular has added features such as video capturing and night vision, making monocular a lightweight and extremely useful device.

The high-quality monocular offer great visibility and visual precision, and also the best budget option. 

In this article, we review a common monocular model, the Bestguarder 6×50 mm HD Night Vision Monocular.

We will also analyzemonocular’s main elements to help you decide whichfeatures are most important to your requirements.

Let’s look at the key features on the Bestguarder WG-50 monocular before we unpack it any further.

The specifications of Bestguarder WG-50 6×50 mm HD Digital Night Vision Monocular are listed below. Take a look and make sure if this monocular model can fit your needs.


  • User-friendly interface
  • Adjustable eyepiece
  • Water-resistant


  • No auto-focus

Digital zoom: 

The digital zoom works well in complete darkness, and we like the option to take a picture or record a video.

It also comes with three customizable levels of brightness, so you’ll still have a good view.

Convenience and Portability:

The Bestguarder is encased for water resistance in a durable housing classified IPX4. And it has wrap-around, supportive rubber molding for a safe grip.

For secure mounting two built-in mounting jacks are included. The units also included a TV output cable, as well as USB.

Additionally, the nylon carrying case is customized for holding the lens with the interior pouch and exterior gear.


Magnification is the principal distinction between a telescope and a monocular.

The majority of the telescope is used to magnify above 20x higher. Normally the monocular magnification is about 8x, or 10x. 

The field of view of a single monocular is narrow. Also, the large magnifications reduce brightness and laser units, particularly on image clarity.

High magnification levels may overall be a sign of poor quality or a less trustworthy dealer.

Lens size: 

The objective lens diameter is one of the most important visual parameters of the monocular. Specifications are given in 2 numbers, 8×25 for example. The first number represents the magnifying power of the unit; the second is lens size.

Usually, the most common diameter lies between 20 mm and 42 mm. Compact monoculars called “pocket” are about 25 mm.

The larger lenses are also heavier but offer higher brightness and clearness of the image.

Field of view: 

At any significant magnification, the small area which the device can “see” at one time is restrainedbythe small and compact design. You usually want the FOV to be as big as possible, for that reason.

Night vision: 

Monoculars can include “image intensifiers” to digitally improve the photons collected under low-light conditions.

This capacity is falsely claimed by some cheaper models, so be mindful that real night-vision involves an electrical source and results in a heavier device.

Zoom capacity: 

Zoom capacity may be a useful “point and shoot” technique but its use is limited by the inherent FOV restrictions of the monocular.

True zooming, or variable magnification, interferes with the optical image quality of the short monocular and narrows an already limited field of view.

Wide fields of application:

  • Scouting game & hunting
  • Exploring caves
  • Security & surveillance
  • Boating & night fishing
  • Bird watching
  • Search & rescue
  • Wildlife observation


On the downside, in a short amount of time, the battery charge is used up. And auto-focus is not present. But the unit is durable and water-resistant, and the night vision makes the images clear.

You can use it with a stand too and this comes with a one-year guarantee.

Final Thoughts: 

If you are looking for a professional night vision monocular this Bestguarder WG-50 HD Digital Night Vision monocular is a great value.

This is one to look at if you want to scope animals in your yard or the next field and go hiking with night-time options. 

We believe the best WG-50 monocular will provide the optical clarity required to easily identify your target and capture high-resolution images. It’s a useful tool for adding to your hunting arsenal.
