A Pocket-Sized FLIR
The new FLIR Scout TK got a lot of attention at the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas where it was introduced, and for good reason. This small, pocket-sized infrared monocular packs a lot of fun, and safe boating, into a 6-ounce package.
A consumer version of the same technology in FLIR units used by the military and law enforcement, the new monocular is the smallest and lightest camera in the Scout series. it has all the power to cut through night and low-light conditions with full-color thermal imaging to help you see people, boats, buoys, lobster pots and navigation aids up to 100 yards away. The Scout TK can also take up to four hours of low-res video or stills, all at the touch of a button.
The new FLIR is user-friendly, starting up in seconds. It’s designed for single-handed use, and has only four buttons so you can change the image to be high-contrast, monochrome or hot-spots only. It works with a five-hour rechargeable Li-Ion battery.
The Scout TK costs $599, which is a small price to pay for all the extra safety features it delivers on even the darkest night on the water.
