A 902B on high gain is the same as a 902H on low gain - and lots of people use the 902H on low gain

I have all 3 cameras, I find the watec 902h better for gathering light, followed closely by the e700 then trailing behind is the 902b.
The 902b is ok for a spotter but even then needs lots of ir, when put behind a scope the loss of light through all of the glass means it needs even more ir and just doesn't work very well at all. There is a about 5 little switches inside the 902b that can be adjusted and played with to get the best out of it but you have to remove the screws to get to them where's I think the 902h only has hi and low gain to alter.
If space and mounting isn't a problem, out of the 3, I think the 902h slightly has the edge for picture quality, if size and compactness is an issue then the e700 is not far behind and is tiny in comparison and weighs hardly nothing.

There was someone on here a couple of weeks ago with a link to a eBay seller that was accepting best offers of around £30 for the 902b.
