ZEISS is proud to announce the release of the ZEISS DTI 3/25, its second thermal imaging camera developed especially for hunting. With a focal length of 25 mm, it offers an enlarged field of view of 26 meters at a range of 100 meters and thus a decisive advantage when hunting in wooded areas or at the bait site at night. “With the addition of the ZEISS DTI 3/25, we are expanding our product range to include another thermal imaging camera that provides a complete overview in total darkness, especially at close range,” says Tammo Lüken, Head of Category Management Hunting at ZEISS.
The ZEISS DTI 3/25 owes its impressive optical performance to the fact that the sensor, electronics, screen, and eyepiece are all designed to be perfectly compatible. “Maintaining an overview is critical when hunting in forested areas, especially in the dark, as it is more difficult to spot game. The distances at which game can be spotted are much shorter than in open terrain,” explaines Lüken. Thanks to the ZEISS DTI 3/25’s enlarged field of view and high-resolution HD-LCOS display, hunters are able to reliably detect all of the heat sources, even at close range, and obtain a complete overview, whether they are hunting from a high seat or at the bait site. “At the same time, quickly switching from maximum overview to higher magnification is easily possible using the digital zoom with increments of 0.5x,” Lüken reports.
In order to stay completely silent and fully attentive to the game during night hunting, it must be possible to operate the thermal imaging camera in a natural and ergonomic way. The triangular button layout and the specific arrangement of the buttons allow the controls to be identified quickly and accurately, even in the dark and with gloves on in cold conditions. The ZEISS DTI 3 family thus offers simplified and intuitive operation that helps both right-handed and left-handed hunters hunt successfully.
The ZEISS DTI 3/35 and the new ZEISS DTI 3/25 thermal imaging cameras can be connected to the ZEISS Hunting app via Wi-Fi to manage and share photos and videos as well as livestream hunting experiences. The latest firmware is already installed and unlocks additional features such as improved focusing thanks to contrast enhancement (Contrast Boost) and a focus frame in picture-in-picture mode. These innovations are complemented by an LED screen that can be switched off manually for optimized camouflage as well as an extended battery life of 10 hours.
The ZEISS DTI 3/25 will be released in time for the upcoming hunting season and will be available from specialist dealers beginning in mid-October 2021.
