The photoblind V+ with Sylvain Tardy
Writing from Mr.TARDY
Searching for a simple hide, easy to open, use, bring and close, I have bought and used the V+ hide
in my garden last August. Sparrows and goldfinches were busy to eat on sunflowers I sowed for
them. As I had no much time, it was a good moment to test my hide.
I just installed the hide one or two days before in front of sunflowers, in order to birds became
After less than an hour in the hide with good light, I had the chance to take some pictures. With just a
300mm F4 Nikon and the combo tripod/ball joint from my telescope…With wat’s avalaible !
Easy to install, to close (thanks to Tragopan for the video !), the V+ hide is suitable for me. Confort is
OK, space avalaible is enough for my 1,80 meters, for a good seat and other things (binoculars,
backpacks…). Windows are wisely arranged to look around, too. After one or two showers and dews,
there was no problem. I plan to use my V+ close by bird tables this winter and in more difficult
situations, when time will be free ! Then I will post my opinion.
I any case, V+ is a really good hide for naturalists like me, who want to observe at close range with
not much time available and a correct but not profesionnal photographic equipment. More, this
simple hide offers a really good quality for a very reasonnable price. I think it could enable non
profesionnal naturalists like me to have lots of satisfactions.
Thanks to Jonathan and Aurélien for their advices and their kindness.
