Leica Calonox View Thermal Imager
Leica has now used their infamous digital imaging reputation to produce thermal imaging optics. The Leica Calonox View (handheld spotter) and Calonox Sight (rifle scope add on).
The outstanding detection range of the Leica Calonox "View" is based on a high-end vanadium oxide sensor with 640x512 pixels and 12µm pixel size at excellent temperature resolution. The 2.5x basic optical magnification provides a large field of view and is therefore ideal for observations in the immediate vicinity. Using digital zoom up to 10x magnification in combination with the outstanding LCOS display with 1280x960 pixels and Leica's own image processing (Leica Image Optimization - LIO™), no details remain hidden even at great 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.
