AN/PVS-14 Camcorder adapter

Postby mik73blaze on Fri Dec 21, 2012 1:29 am

Hi,
I am new to this board and would appreciate some input from those more familiar with PVS-14 than myself. I recently purchased a older PVS-14 off ebay (tag says warranty expired '05), and would like to attach it to my camcorder. Anyway, apparently it has a type of eyecup that is epoxied to the steel ring which is attached to the night vision by a c-pin. From what I understand the newer type PVS-14 have a eyecup which is held in place by a threaded piece which screws down on it. The commercially available adapters I see all seem to be for this new type whereby the eyecup can be removed leaving behind a female threaded region which the adapter can be attached. However, for my unit, I have no idea how to remove the eyecup or attach some type of camera adapter. I would appreciate any input from someone familiar with the PVS-14's. My goal is to be able to film though my night vision using a Sony camera with a 37mm female thread coming off my camera (which I can easily step up to 46 mm which is what the commercially available adapter needs). Thank you for very much for your assistance.

Sincerely,

Mike

Strange to have an eyepiece on a PVS-14 that can't be switched from left to right eye or removed. It may have been altered. I would look a bit closer to confirm you can't remove the eyepiece. All others that I know of may be replaced.
