Night landings: All cockpit lights off?!

I just saw a YouTube video of a Case III night landing, recorded from a GoPro attached to the pilots helmet. As you can see the cockpit appears to be pitch black. The DDIs appear to be off, instrument/panel lighting appears to be off, and the HUD is either off or not visible due to the angle of the camera in relation to the reflector glass. Is it normal for carrier night landings to be done this way, or was the pilot using NVGs?

The DDIs are probably in night mode and the HUD is turned down.

 

Less light emitting from inside the better you can see outside.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
