A thermal imaging camera has its place when it comes to deer hunting, especially when it comes to tracking shot deer. Enhanced game retrieval will help other hunters, too, so it’s time an affordable camera come to market to meet the demand. Enter Seek Thermal. They recently debuted their new Seek RevealXR FastFrame – all-in-one extended range thermal imaging device, boasting a 20-degree field of view and >15Hz frame rate, and combined with a high-performance 300-Lumen LED flashlight.
Seek Thermal Imaging Camera Debut
At the IWA OutdoorClassics Show, Seek Thermal unveiled its full line of affordable thermal image cameras for deer hunting, hog hunting and the outdoors. This includes the new Seek RevealXR FastFrame, an all-in-one extended range thermal imaging device, boasting a 20-degree field of view and >15Hz imaging frame rate, and also featuring a high-performance 300-Lumen LED light.
Seek also offers the Seek CompactXR, an award-winning Connect & Detect thermal imaging camera that plugs directly into your iOS or Android smartphone device and offers an impressive narrow field of view of up to 550 meters. Sounds like must-have deer hunting equipment to me. Can not wait to try it!
“Thermal imaging has been around for years, but up until now has cost thousands of dollars and largely unattainable to use in every day sporting,” said Tracy Benson, VP Global Marketing of Seek Thermal. “Now, Seek Thermal is changing that by engineering a product line that is portable, compact and affordable so that people have a smart advantage at their fingertips for scouting, tracking, and guaranteeing recovery in the rough, tough and dark environments people often face in the wilderness. As our company continues to expand, we are excited to now make this possible…”
The new Seek RevealXR comes in two colors: Pure Black and TrueTimber Kanati Camo, which is inspired by avid outdoorsman, professional boar hunter, and global TV personality Brian “Pigman” Quaca and strategic partnership with True Timber<>/a>. Seek’s Compact series cameras were the first stand-alone thermal imagers to connect directly to a smartphone and have received critical acclaim from Field & Stream, Popular Science, BBC Global, and more.
