The highly thermally sensitive 640x512px 12um SUB 20 NETD sensor ensures perfect detail recognition. Capable of detecting the smallest details like animal hair, subtle physical characteristics and information from the surroundings like branches and leaves – building you a reliable picture of your target and its surroundings. 

Perfect for wildlife observation and as a hand held thermal imager for hunting, the new HikMicro Falcon FQ50 thermal imaging camera features a high specification F50/0.9 lens to deliver crystal clear thermal viewing via a 1024x768 HD display.

Improved Design and Cutting Edge Performance 
With a significantly improved design with new easily accessible controls, the Falcon FQ50 sensor is focused via a smooth operation ring on the objective lens, with a wide field of view for scanning large areas, but with the ability to discern detail at distance thanks to the high specification lens system and sensor combination.
Intuitive in design and easy to use the Falcon FQ50 thermal spotter provides an ultra clear image with impressive detail recognition, making it perfect for wildlife surveys and ecology.
Image Pro enhanced image optimisation uses high performance algorithms to deliver the best possible image performance with a super large aperture F0.9 50mm lens.

Long Detection Range
With a detection range of up to 2600m, the Falcon FQ50 can provide superior detail recognition to allow you to identify wildlife at up to 700m with a 22m at 100m Field of View, for scanning large areas, but a powerful sensor which allows you to zoom in on the image source, with minimal pixelation.

Extended Run Time in the field
With a 7hr battery life, the HikMicro Falcon features a rugged magnesium housing with a protective rubber armour exterior and is waterproof rated to IP67 for use in all weather conditions.
Supplied with 2 x rechargeable batteries, the Falcon battery can be swapped out in the field in seconds.

Image Pro Mode - Market leading comfort, design and image performance

The eyecup would feel at home on a high quality pair of binoculars, comfortably holding the display in the correct position, giving you a comfortable view of the large HD OLED screen.

The Falcon is the first HikMicro product to offer Image Pro mode. When activated image pro boosts the detail in the image both for animals and background.

In addition to Image Pro the Falcon also boasts all of the normal software features found in HIK products including a choice of 4 colour pallets and access to the HikMicro Sight app which allows you to stream, control and record from your thermal monocular. The built in 64gb memory also allows you to save images and videos directly onto the monocular.

Ultra Clear Image. Impressive Detail Recognition 

The higher sensitivity in combination with high definition sensor and larger aperture optics provides the best quality, most detailed&high-contrast, informative image in all weather conditions. 

1. Extremely high thermal sensitivity, NETD<20mK 

High thermal sensitivity ensures perfect detail recognition even in the hardest weather conditions when the object and background is with minimal temperature difference. Besides, self-developed high TCR vanadium oxide thin film material greatly improves sensitivity. The smallest details of objects and backgrounds can be identified easily and clearly, i.e. the animal hair, physical characteristics of male, female or pregnant animals, branches, leaves etc. 

2. High definition thermal sensor, up to 640x512 @12μm 

Equipped with 12μm high-end thermal sensor and up to 640x512 pixel resolution offer an excellent temperature resolution to ensure the thermal image significantly sharp and richly contrasted. 

3. Super large aperture f/0.9 lens, 19% improvement 

With a high-performance aspheric germanium lens, the super large aperture f/0.9 offers better temperature radiation capturing capability. Compared with the f/1.0 aperture, the capturing of temperature radiation level is increased by 19%. The larger the aperture is, the more infrared radiation can be captured, and the image will be much clearer. 

4. Image Pro, enhanced self-developed image processing algorithm 

Image Pro, HIKMICRO’s self-developed image processing algorithm, ensures the maximum digital image optimization depending on the purposes and conditions of observation and provide high-quality rendering of both target objects and background. 

Significantly Improved Design. Exceptional ease-to-use 

1. Ergonomic cylindrical shape design for better operation experience 

The compact and premium cylindrical shape design offers the perfect operation experience. It allows for one-handed operation,and is also optimized for both left-handed and right-handed users. Besides, the device adopts soft and skin-friendly material for a better hand feel. 

2. Perfect component design for intuitive operation and ease-to-use 

The component design has been greatly improved according to user feedback, which is more in line with the needs of users‘ real use scenarios. The buttons arrangement is very user-friendly and with the different shapes, i.e. the triangular, round, and square shape, each function can be identified and controlled intuitively and quickly–even when wearing gloves or under complete darkness. Besides, the silent button operation also ensures a quiet user experience. The threaded design of the manual focus knob makes it easier to operate. 

3. Robust magnesium housing and lens coating material for long-time use 

The rugged magnesium housing material prevents sweat, rain, mist and dew from corroding. The objective lens adopts SDLC coating technology, which can effectively prevent scratches. With IP67 waterproof-rated, the device is designed for protection from heavy rainfall, snow or other precipitation, even can be immersed in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes.It's perfect for constant and often hard use. 

Replaceable and Rechargeable High Capacity Battery, Not-stop Observation 

On one battery pack the device can run up to 6 hours. With the convenient replaceable feature, another battery unit can be used as the spare one which provides enough power for non-stop operation. Besides, any ordinary power bank connected via a Type-C interface can be used as an external power supply.
