FLIR Scout TS32r Pro Thermal Night Vision Camera
This is your chance to own the FLIR Scout TS32r Pro handheld thermal night vision camera! The top-of-the line TS32r Pro model made by FLIR, the world’s leading manufacturer of thermal imaging devices for commercial, law enforcement and military use, is perfect for observation of wild hogs and predators and for wildlife enforcement applications, day or night. The Scout TS32r Pro is ultra compact (10.42” X 3.33” X 2.62”), lightweight (approx 1.5 lbs) and simple to use, delivering > 5 hrs of operating and ~120hrs of standby battery life for more extended treks. Unlike traditional “night vision” devices that require ambient light, Scout only needs the animal’s “heat signature” to make it visible in total darkness or in full sunlight. In fact, the unit is so sensitive it can detect recent blood trails, animals that have been dead for a while, and even help you distinguish between bucks and does. The Scout TS32r Pro includes a 2X e-zoom that can push detection out to 1,400 yards as well as an SD card to capture video and still images. Don’t miss this opportunity to be one of the first in North America to own this cutting-edge thermal night vision device!
