TOY BOX: Bushnell Nighthawk merits spotlight

A quick warning here: It's highly doubtful that you'll be using the Bushnell Nighthawk as part of your PR job.

A quick warning here: It's highly doubtful that you'll be using the Bushnell Nighthawk as part of your PR job.

The Nighthawk is a digital way to see things in the dark. It's a device that might be more appropriate for a private eye than a PR pro.

That said, it just sounded so cool that I had to try it. The camera-sized device is made for camping, hunting, boating, or any other activity for which you may need to see in the dark.

The technology worked really well. My daughter and I took it up to the dark attic the day it arrived just to try it.

I kept it on my nightstand for a week, too, thinking I'd be able to see any intruders in the dark, although if someone had broken in I would have been too sleepy to use it.

It can adjust to brighten the darkest scene and has a convenient viewing screen and lens-pivoting feature.

If you need to see in the dark, this is the product I'd recommend you go with.
