Introducing the new Lynx 2.0 25mm thermal monocular. Sharing the same design philosophy, robust build quality and high performance thermal sensors as the class leading Falcon and Condor monoculars, the Lynx 2.0 redefines expectations from entry level thermal products.

More Information

High performance thermal – At the core of the Lynx 2.0 25mm is HIKMICRO’s latest generation,
384px Sub 20 mK NETD sensor that pairs with the advanced, F1.0 lens to detect very small changes
in temperature and deliver an incredibly detailed image, even in the most challenging conditions. The
15mm Focal length offers 2.4x base mag with up to 8x digital magnification giving you 2.4-19.2x
magnification range.

Compact and powerful - Built on a robust magnesium-alloy chassis, the Lynx 2.0 has a distinctly
premium feel from the first time you pick it up. The updated chassis design also features a removable
18650 battery delivering up to 6.5 hours of run time. The ergonomic buttons fall easily to hand and
allow you to intuitively take control of the main features, even in complete darkness. The large OLED
screen gives a great view of your surroundings while the soft eyecup prevents unwanted light spill.

Digital connectivity – The Lynx 2.0 is supplied with the latest HIKMICRO software which gives you
fast access to commonly used options like brightness and contrast and allows you to add a PIP
screen to your monocular. The Lynx 2.0 offers a choice of four thermal colour profiles, the ability to
record pictures or video and WiFi to allow you to connect, stream and control from the HIKMICRO
sight app.

The lower the NETD value, the better the imaging
Thermal imaging works by sensing tiny differences in temperature, and the more sensitive the sensor
is to minute contrasts, the better and more clear the image in the viewfinder. Lynx 2.0’s sub 20mK
NETD sensors capture the sharpest, most informative images, even in challenging conditions; this
means that you can not just find the heat of people, animals and birds, but capture the detail of the
surroundings to aid identification.

Convenience is king
The Lynx 2.0 has been redesigned to maximise convenience in every area. The size and weight, at
under 175mm in length and under 300g with battery, combine with the rugged build and comfortable
rounded shape to produce a powerful device that can easily be carried and used at all times. The new
power system uses industry-standard rechargeable 18650 batteries for a continuous run-time of up to
6.5 hours, which can be renewed by a quick switch of the battery to a (supplied) spare. Lynx 2.0 also
features a 3 second Fast Boot time, to easily keep pace with the action in the field.

Integrated phone or tablet hotspot
HIKMICRO’s Sight App links Lynx 2.0 to your phone or tablet, creating a second display and adding
functionality: You can control the device via the app, view and share recorded images and video,
share the thermal view with others in your group, and control and update the software settings.

The Lynx 2.0 is the perfect, versatile companion device for ecological survey, wildlife
observation, search & rescue and security applications. The affordable price, high performance and
robust, proven build make it a natural choice and it seems well set to take over the best-seller crown
from its much-loved predecessor.

Our experts say:
Handheld thermal spotters are an invaluable tool for birdwatchers offering portability and ease of use in the field. By scanning the environment, body heat signatures are easily identified in challenging conditions where avian life would usually remain hidden. Beyond conventional viewing devices, thermal monoculars are an indispensable device for tracking/locating birds in flight, capturing their movements against the backdrop of the sky - this is particularly useful for observing nocturnal or migratory species during low light.
With their versatility and effectiveness, handheld thermal spotters enhance the birdwatching experience, providing enthusiasts with new insights and opportunities to observe wildlife.
