The Lahoux LV-21 is the new thermal imaging camera in the high-end range of thermal cameras of Lahoux Optics. (Lahoux LM-11 monocular, Lahoux LG-31 goggle and Lahoux LS-51 rifle scopes).
The light and handy Lahoux LV-21 thermal imaging camera with 35 mm germanium lens can be used as a surveillance camera and by a single button push and installation of a special adapter turned into a front attachment.
The camera offers the user a solution during difficult circumstances. At night, during fog or heavy rain a hunt has to be halted. While using thermal technology, under most circumstances, continuation of the hunt is successfully possible.
The Lahoux LV-21 makes use of an innovative 336 x 256 sensor with 17 micron pixel pitch, which, together with the 35 mm (f/1.2) lens, results in very high DRI (Detection / Recognition / Identification) values. DRI or the Johnson criteria together with the NETD value (FPA sensitivity in mK) are a measure for the quality of a thermal imaging camera.
The Lahoux LV 21 camera with this sensor is better than any other commercial camera currently available on the market and gives an excellent image quality, even at greater distances. A 640 x 512 sensor is also available making the field of view two times as large.
The Lahoux LV-21 thermal imaging camera is also available in a Pro and Elite version for an even higher contrast/sharper image (higher NETD value). A waterproof universal connector can charge the camera and connect the camera to a monitor or a recorder. The Lahoux LV-21 can be used with CR-123 batteries or a 18650 rechargeable cell with polarity independent battery placement.
The robust knobs are waterproof and can be operated in the winter with gloves if needed. The operating time when using the 18650 battery is very long, up to 8 hours.
