Electronics Editor Ben Ellison got to see how Night Vision Technologies’s (www.nvti-usa.com) 3000i night/day vision system worked on a dark and busy
Intercoastal Waterway north of Fort Lauderdale. With him is Peter Curtis,

combines infared, low light, and super zoomable color cameras in one pan and
tilt unit. It works very well. The low light camera showing a day mark and water detail that was invisible to the normal
eye (bottom photo).
