Introducing the latest addition to the Gryphon family, the high resolution, high magnification, HIKMICRO Gryphon GQ50L PRO LRF Thermal Imaging Camera.
The HikMicro Gryphon GQ50L is a high specification pocket rocket delivers the detailed thermal image associated with HIKMICRO’s 640x512px, sub 35mk NETD sensor paired with a high quality 50mm lens system to deliver 2.9x magnification within the compact Gryphon chassis.
In addition to the high specification thermal channel – the HikMicro Gryphon GQ50L is also fitted with an optical camera that can operate in low light and even complete darkness with the optional IR Torch attachment. This is effectively a Thermal and Night Vision Monocular in one.
The HIKMICRO Gryphon GQ50L PRO LRF Thermal Imaging Camera features a built-in 600m Laser Range Finder allows you to accurately judge the distance to the target in a choice of yards and metres, and there is the added option to choose between a single readings and scan mode.
The Gryphon chassis also introduces a range of new features. These include a jog wheel that allows you to scroll the magnification up and down as you would with a conventional optical scope, an optional Laser Range Finder and a removable 18650 battery. The large display of HikMicro Gryphon GQ50L is a 1024×768 OLED display generates a bright and crisp view of your surroundings that’s easy on your eye.
At the centre of the HikMicro Gryphon GQ50L is HIKMICRO’s 640x512px, 12µm thermal sensor with a sub-35mK NETD. This highly accurate thermal sensor is capable of detecting small temperature differences, building a highly detailed image, even in the harshest of conditions.
The thermal sensor is paired with HIKMICRO’s high performance 50mm focal length lens system which delivers 2.9x optical magnification, with up to 8x digital magnification, effectively making this a 2.9 – 23x monocular.
This is paired with a high-resolution optical camera that is capable of providing a detailed image both in daylight hours and in complete darkness using the optional IR torch. You can quickly switch between pure thermal view and the detailed optical mode to detect and accurately identify heat sources.
The HikMicro Gryphon GQ50L also includes the unique Fusion mode which adds the detail from the optical image to boost the performance of the thermal channel, delivering the ultimate in detection and detail.
The HikMicro Gryphon GQ50L uses an all new chassis design which has been developed to be easily held and operated in one hand. There are three buttons on the top of the unit make it easy to operate the Laser Range Finder and switch between image modes. HIKMICRO have also included a revolutionary jog wheel that falls comfortably to the tip of your index finger and can be used to scroll up and down the magnification like a conventional optical scope. This jog wheel is also used to quickly navigate the menu system.
The 600m Laser Range Finder is located on the left hand side of the unit in a compact housing and offers distance readings accurate to ±1m. When activated there is a small crosshair added to the display that can be used to target the Range Finder. Choose between spot mode for a single reading and scan mode for a constantly updating range reading.
The HikMicro Gryphon GQ50L is also the first Monocular in the HIKMICRO range to be powered by the industry standard 18650 removable battery. This makes extended wildlife trips possible without any power concerns. Replacement batteries are readily available and economical to buy. There is also a high specification charger included with your Gryphon, this provides detail on the charging status and health of your batteries ensuring that you aren’t caught in the field with no power.
