Meprolight NYX222 Dual Channel Thermal 2x Sight w/Day Camera Review

The Mepro NYX 222 series is a multispectral sight which clearly detects the heat signatures even in no low light conditions and has superior detection.

There are dual camera channels that are day and low light that provide the shooter with a better situational awareness even under worst conditions.

Its day channel option will help the shooter to use the Mepro NYX 222 for the whole day and thus maintain accuracy at all times.

It features a user-friendly keypad, icon-based menus for easy navigation, and operation under all conditions.

The sensor resolution is 640×480 pixels and the display resolution is 640×512 pixels which is the most significant factor for all thermal cameras.

Without a good clarity lens, nothing is going to be done perfectly so while you choose the camera you must inspect whether it comes with a good resolution factor.

But there’s nothing to worry about the NYX222 dual camera because it has a great resolution.


The NYX-200 is a group of sights from the same family, whereas the NYX-211 amd NYX-212 comes with a low light and day camera and an x1 magnification, and the NYX-221 and NYX-222 will differ in magnification, an x2 and the FOV is 10.3° x 8.3°.

The operational range of these versions will be around 500 meters. But for 1x versions, the range would be at 200 meters.
