FLIR have launched their new SCOUT series, replacing the popular PS-24 and PS-32 with the new FLIR Scout II - 240 - 240 × 180 VOx and FLIR Scout II - 320 - 336 × 256 VOx

Scout II is a compact thermal night vision camera built for the great outdoors. Scout II detects the body heat of animals and people in any terrain, day or night. Track game, recover downed animals, watch for predators, and stay aware of your surroundings after darkness falls. With a high resolution LCD display, video out and a choice of magnifications, Scout II empowers you to experience wild places like never before.


How does Thermal Imaging work?

All objects emit some kind of radiation, as a function of their temperature. FLIR Cameras detect this infrared radiation instead of visible light. Infra-red is not visible to the human eye because its wavelength is too long to be detected. To put it another way: FLIR Cameras see heat. The cameras detect heat radiation and converts that information into a visible image we can see and understand. FLIR can show you this image in a number of ways – black & white, where the white images are warmer, or the reverse of this where hot objects appear black, or you can highlight just the hottest areas with the unique InstAlert feature. This makes it easy to spot suspects in the thermal image.


White Hot & Black Hot

This type of camera lends itself particularly well to hunting as thermal cameras can be used to detect animal body heat, and the image is not affected by darkness, smoke, fog, dust, snow or rain. They can be used to detect heat day or night. No matter how camouflaged an animal may be, it can't hide it's heat from the FLIR Camera


Fog, Show, Smoke

What’s new about the SCOUT Series?

The generation SCOUT II cameras output their video feed through an included cable cable, allowing you to capture and record what you are viewing.

The SCOUT II cameras also feature an upgraded sensor and an enhanced 19mm lens, meaning the image is clearer than ever before and you can zoom in closer to what you want to see.

The new SCOUT II series are a definite upgrade from the previous hunting camera generation.
