(3). A PURCHASERS UNDERSTANDING.
A purchaser must assure themselves that their choice of product will fulfill their own requirements, as those requirements will vary greatly from user to user.
Australian Shooting Services can only offer guidance to a purchaser but cannot guarantee individual suitability.
The purchaser must also be fully aware of the fact that all classes of IMAGE INTENSIFYING and THERMAL IMAGING equipment, performance will vary considerably under differing atmospheric conditions, and does not constitute faulty equipment.
Regardless of claims made by some, stating that thermal imaging is not affected by smoke, fog, rain etc., it is important to be aware that all those situations will affect the performance of all grades of thermal imaging, as well as all other types of night vision products by varying degrees, dependent on the prevailing conditions.
Atmospheric pressure and humidity will also alter the performance to some extent.
It is also claimed at times by various sources, that thermal imaging will “see through thick bushes etc., unlike other forms of night vision".
Anything that completely shields an object / target or any part thereof, will prevent it, or that part, being seen with all optical equipment.
More details and explanation of specifications used with all night vision & thermal imaging equipment can be found in the "Night Vision Information" pages on this site.
It should be noted that thermal products may need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair during or after the warranty period has expired and this may entail long delays in servicing for some products.
The purchaser should be aware they will be liable for the cost of freight and insurance to the manufacturer.
A purchaser*, is deemed to be the person placing an order, and / or any person who places an order on behalf of an end user, whether authorized or not.
The above terms and conditions above apply to all purchases, and it is understood that the purchaser has accepted, and agrees to, these terms and conditions before making a purchase.
NOTE. Prices and specification may change without notice on any product listed.
