With the introduction of the DTI 1 and DTI 4, ZEISS is unveiling two new thermal imaging cameras for hunting. The new ZEISS DTI 3 GEN 2 builds upon the DTI 3 thermal imaging camera, which was first launched in 2020. The ZEISS DTI family has several features in common including intuitive ergonomics and ease of use, an exceptional viewing experience, as well as sophisticated power management, and seamless connectivity with the ZEISS Hunting App. “With the new DTI 1, DTI 4, and the second generation of the successful DTI 3, we now offer a complete line of thermal imaging cameras for all hunting applications and at a variety of price points,” reported Constantin Klug, Category Manager for Hunting at ZEISS.
“Hunting requires a high level of concentration. Operating a thermal imaging device can’t be an obstacle at all,” Klug noted. The new ZEISS thermal imaging cameras share some commonalities and first and foremost is their excellent ergonomics, which makes operation intuitive and easy thanks to the ErgoControl concept. “A thermal imaging camera’s image quality and level of detail is critical to a successful hunt,” Klug said. That is why the DTI family stands out for its extraordinary viewing experience. With 0.5 zoom increments, the thermal imaging cameras offer the ideal combination of zoom and detail recognition for reliable identification. The cameras also feature an efficient power management system and full integration into the ZEISS Hunting App.
“Thermal imaging cameras are an essential piece of hunting gear that help make hunting safer and more successful. Our ZEISS DTI 1 is the ideal entry point into the world of ZEISS thermal imaging cameras and the perfect choice for stalking,” said Klug. The ZEISS DTI 1 is a compact and lightweight thermal imaging camera with features such as Transition Zoom, which enables uninterrupted observation thanks to the continuous zoom effect, as well as personalized settings. The camera comes with a new detection mode and four new color modes that significantly reduce the screen’s glare effect, allowing heat sources to be detected clearly. The new ZEISS DTI 1 is being launched with two different focal lengths: the DTI 1/19 with a field of view of 24 m at 100 m and a range of 1000 m, and the DTI 1/25 with a field of view of 18 m at 100 m and a range of 1320 m.
“The ZEISS DTI 3 GEN 2 builds upon the DTI 3 thermal imaging camera and offers a significant upgrade in terms of hardware and software features. In particular, the new image processor and AMOLED display delivers an advancement in image quality for a remarkably detailed and sharp image,” noted Klug. In addition to the performance features of the DTI 1, the DTI 3 GEN 2 also has other features, such as the movement alert, which emits a visual signal when the heat source moves, or the practical shortcut keys, which enable even faster and more practical operation of the thermal imaging camera. The DTI 3 GEN 2 will continue to be offered with two focal lengths: the DTI 3/25 with a range of 930 m and a particularly wide field of view of 26 m, and the DTI 3/35 with a range of 1300 m for hunting in the open field.
“With the DTI 4, we’ve taken image quality to another level to help hunters identify game even more accurately and reliably than ever before,” Klug said. Building on the features of the DTI 3 GEN 2, the DTI 4 is primarily distinguished by its even higher resolution 640 x 512 px sensor with 12 μm pixel pitch. “This delivers superior image quality at all zoom levels and increased detection range – for enhanced detail recognition and a sharp, high-contrast image, at longer distances.” For this reason, the DTI 4 is being offered in two focal lengths: the DTI 4/35 as well as the DTI 4/50. With the 50 mm focal length, ZEISS is offering a particularly long detection range of over 2,500 m – for successful hunting at long distances.
The new ZEISS DTI 1, DTI 3 GEN 2, and DTI 4 thermal imaging cameras will be available from ZEISS authorized dealers in July.
