Leica Calonox Sight Thermal Scope
The completely new developed Leica Calonox thermal imaging cameras are offered in two versions: As a pure observation device – Leica Calonox “View” – and as an header device for mounting in conjunction on a riflescope – Leica Calonox “Sight”.
Leica Camera has been known for many years as a manufacturer of digital cameras for the highest demands. In contrast to conventional digital cameras, thermal imaging cameras record infra-red radiation, which is not visible to the human eye, as a thermal image. The two new Leica Calonox thermal imaging cameras have been optimised for their respective applications and feature outstanding Leica typical image quality with particularly detailed grey tones, outstanding contrast and high detail resolution at all observation distances.
The permanently installed rechargeable battery with more than 6 hours of operating time is particularly well protected against cold and weather influences by its positioning inside the Calonox devices. The unique product design is oriented towards the needs of the hunter and integrates perfectly into the hunter’s equipment due to its cylindrical shape and ease of use – whether mounted or hand-held. Operation with only three buttons is intuitive, user-friendly and reduced to the essentials. Both models feature a fast 42 mm lens.
Leica Calonox “Sight”
The Leica Calonox “Sight” header device is optimised for use in conjunction with a conventional riflescope and is therefore equipped with 1x magnification. Due to the fixed construction of the complete system, the Calonox “Sight” is consistently accurate. The horizontal field of view from 15.5 to 100 meters provides a great overview, while the 384×288 pixel sensor in combination with the high-resolution OLED display and Leica’s own image processing (Leica Image Optimisation – LIO) ensures a detailed image. High-quality adapters for mounting on a riflescope are available for all common lens sizes.
