|1.)||For a complete Night Vision device a pair of mounting/housing modules and a CIU is needed, plus normal Canon EOS body and lens. If there is absolutely no light available, you will also need one of the laser illuminators (also depends on your camera's ISO capabilities). The 9350EOS-3-PRO and 9350EOS-3V-PRO to be found in Electrophysics catalog are the standard kits including either 9350EOS-P or 9350EOS-PV and one of the (non-exportable type) Gen III CIUs.|
|2.)||Production dates: In 2000 technical specs for an auto-gain P model were given as follows: weight of 540g, size of 63.5 x 101.6mm (Ø x L), the resolution was given with up to
450 TV lines and a power usage with 0.3mW/50mA. Magnification of the system is 1x. The data given in the table above slightly differs and was acquired
from more recent website versions and from information given by the US support.
In 2004 a lens element in the back body adapters was replaced against a f/1.3 element and the edge to edge sharpness was improved to fit digital age needs.
GEN III FOM export CIUs were listed from 2005 until early 2007, then disappeared and were just relisted in 2009. According to the US support they are "new models".
As of 2009-11 prices started at 9100$ for the basic EOS-P model, EOS-PV was 10100$.
As of 2010-06 a 9350EOS-3-Pro set (see first note) was available from Adorama.com for 6100$ (in 2012-10 on backorder).
As of 2012-10 few 9350EOS-3V-PRO sets with Gen III Pinnacle CIU are listed on Amazon.com as Morovision MVPA-915006G (8500$).

|5.)||AstroScope for Canon XL series camcorders is Model #9350XL. The 2011 brochure only lists Gen III Aviation, Pinnacle and Omni IV CIUs as options.|
