One thing I never understood is how the Predator can see the details in much of their weapons and equipment.  It seems as though their vision doesn't pick up detail as well as a human's vision.  So, how can they use and inscribe all of these details into their equipment?  Do we know if they have some other way to supplement their vision to be similar to a human?

I always asked myself that question too  :laugh:

In "Predators" I noticed the Berserker Predators vision was quite clear and detailed and it made way more sense for how they accomplished making their own equipment, but early movies didn't have the technology to portray the vision that good with the available technology of the time and movies after "Predators" just kind of dropped it in favor of more in line with the first movie just a little clearer.

I like the idea they wear the helmets nearly all the time because their natural vision doesn't compare to the technology they themselves created.

i believe they have more than one set of technologies that they use. maybe some kind of magnetic resonance imaging. maybe some kind frequency range that is unknown to us. mmixing it all up to get a very detailed visual and 3d guidance system.

Just because their vision looks bad to us doesn't mean it looks bad to them. Jungle Hunter certainly didn't have any trouble following Dutch and beating the crap out of him when he took his helmet off. I'd imagine there are plenty of animals in real life (especially ones that use sonar or echo-location) that we'd wonder how they could possibly make anything out if we were somehow able to "see through their eyes" too.

I've neve been a fan of the idea that they have naturally poor vision because of how it looks in the original film. I've always just taken it like Bad Blood said, that it's just a case of the movie-making technology at the time making it less clear than they were able to do later on in Predators when we see it briefly again there.

I actually like the not so high fidelity look myself, it feels more otherworldly.
