See at night and stay safe with the First Mate II family of thermal night vision cameras. The latest generation First Mate II cameras carry on the legacy of the popular First Mate and First Mate MS, using the same thermal imaging technology as FLIR’s Voyager, and M-Series thermal night vision systems, but they’re smaller, lighter, and more powerful than ever before. They create pictures from heat, not light, so you can see landmarks, bridge abutments, and other vessels clearly and navigate safely in all light conditions from daylight to complete darkness, helping you to safely avoid rocks, buoys, floating debris, and other hazards on the water. And First Mate II’s new InstAlert feature helps you find people in the water faster than ever. InstAlert is an automated image processing feature that highlights the strongest heat signatures in the image in red, instantly alerting boaters to people who have fallen overboard or hazards along the way. Includes the camera, a hot shoe charging and video output accessory, four batteries, AC power adapter/charger, neck lanyard, USB cable, video output cable, SD card and user’s manual. Runs for more than five hours on a charge of the four AA NiMH rechargeable batteries.
