NEW: Leica Calonox

Leica presents thermal devices for hunting

For the first time, Leica presents a thermal imaging device designed especially for ethical hunting: the Leica Calonox. In late summer 2020, the Leica Calonox will be launched in two versions: as an observation instrument – Leica Calonox “View” – and as an attachment for mounting on the riflescope – Leica Calonox “Sight”.

Similar in design to conventional digital cameras, thermal imaging cameras detect infrared radiation as a heat signature that is not visible to the human eye.

With the new Leica Calonox thermal imaging cameras, the terrain can be searched for huntable or downed game in the dark or in difficult light conditions. The Leica Calonox models offer a large field of view with a high detection range and high-contrast imaging.

Thanks to their large sensor and high-resolution OLED display, both optics offer the highest quality observation. The ingenious design of the Leica Calonox models revolutionizes the thermal imaging market. The functional elements are extremely ergonomic and easy to manipulate. In addition, operation with just three buttons is intuitive, user-friendly and efficient.

Leica Calonox: As an observation device and attachment

The Leica Calonox "Sight" mounted device can only be used in conjunction with a conventional riflescope, as a clip-on, and is therefore equipped with 1x magnification. The Leica Calonox "View" offers a high recognition range, while the wide field of view is ideal for close-up work thanks to the large sensor (640x480 pixels) at 2.5x basic optical magnification. Both models have a 42 mm lens and are extremely light at around 500 grams. A permanently installed rechargeable battery with a minimum operating time of 6 hours serves as the power supply.

Both models will be available from autumn 2020.
