Introducing the new Lynx 2.0 15mm 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 Imaging: At the core of the Lynx 2.0 15mm is HIKMICRO’s latest generation, 384px Sub 20 mK NETD sensor. Paired with the advanced F1.0 lens, it detects subtle changes in temperature, delivering incredibly detailed images even in challenging conditions. The 15mm focal length offers a 1.4x base magnification, with up to 8x digital magnification, providing a 1.4-11.2x magnification range.

Compact and Nature-Friendly: Built on a robust magnesium-alloy chassis, the Lynx 2.0 has a distinctly premium feel. The updated chassis design features a removable 18650 battery, delivering up to 6.5 hours of runtime. Ergonomic buttons provide intuitive control, 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 for Nature Enthusiasts: Supplied with the latest HIKMICRO software, the Lynx 2.0 gives you fast access to commonly used options like brightness and contrast. It allows you to add a Picture-in-Picture (PIP) screen to your monocular. Offering a choice of four thermal colour profiles, the Lynx 2.0 lets you record pictures or videos and enables WiFi connectivity, allowing you to connect, stream, and control from the HIKMICRO Sight App.

Enhanced Nature Observation: Lynx 2.0’s sub 20mK NETD sensors capture sharp, informative images, aiding in wildlife observation and birdwatching. The high sensitivity to minute temperature contrasts ensures clear imaging in diverse natural environments.

Convenience is Key: Redesigned for maximum convenience, the Lynx 2.0 is compact and lightweight, under 175mm in length and under 300g with the battery. The rugged build and comfortable rounded shape make it a powerful yet easily carried device. The new power system uses industry-standard rechargeable 18650 batteries, providing a continuous runtime of up to 6.5 hours.

Integrated Nature Exploration: HIKMICRO’s Sight App links Lynx 2.0 to your phone or tablet, creating a second display and adding functionality. Control the device via the app, view and share recorded images and videos, share the thermal view with others, and manage 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.
