The confidence that comes from having total visibility day or night is something you will never want to do without again. This marine camera lets you view heat, not light, so you'll have a perspective that is never diminished by pitch darkness or blinding light. Clearly see obstacles like rocks, mooring balls and buoys; never miss a small boat, kayak or channel marker; and identify landmarks such as docks, inlets and jetties up to 3280yd away. Immediately locate overboard pets and people—no matter the conditions—and enhance the safety of your whole crew with this easy-to-use device.

Key Features

  • Total Visibility: This camera gives you a 18° x 14° field of view from 9,842' and has a 3,740' person-in-water range. It has 2x and 4x zoom options so you won't miss a single important detail. Record thermal video and view it from the built-in 640 x 480 LCD display or your computer when you plug it in using the included USB cable. This view is created using the built-in 640 x 512 VOx Microbolometer.

  • Simple Control: Pick up your camera and in under 1 1/2 seconds your device is powered and running. The straightforward design means anyone can use this grab and go device. Power it on/off, toggle between views, adjust brightness and capture video all from simple buttons on the top of your camera. Download saved recordings with the USB cable.
  • Portable: This device is lightweight at only 12oz. and is smaller than many monoculars at only 6 5/8"L x 2 3/8"W x 2 1/2"H. It comes with a lanyard so you can carry it with you hands-free and keep it accessible for when you need it. 
  • Built for Reliability: With a long battery life of over five hours when powered on and a powerful internal Lithium-Ion battery this camera will be ready whenever you need it.
