Which one to buy? Plus another quick question.

Hey guys.

After reading through some forum posts I've decided to buy one of the following:

Yukon Digital Night Vision Ranger 5x42 LT Digital NV Monocular Scope 28041


Bushnell Night Vision 5x42 Stealth View Digital Night Vision Monocular 260542

If price is not an issue, which one looks best to you guys?

Also, this may seem really stupid, but is there any difference between the night vision on one of these and say the night vision on a camcorder? I heard that camcorder night vision is pretty good these days. I haven't seen for myself. Is this a mistake? Are they even the same thing and are they comparable?

Can't comment on NV camcorders, since we don't carry that product line, but all of these are digital, so the technology is roughly the same.

I give a slight edge to the Yukon, but availability is tough on the Yukon. Don't see enough difference between the two to justify waiting for the Yukon.
