Pulsar Quantum XQ50 Hand Held Thermal Imager

Brand new for 2016, the new Pulsar Quantum XQ50 thermal imager features improvements in performance, and additional features over the XD50S predecessor.

With a 50hz refresh rate, combined with state of the art new thermal sensors, the new Quantum XQ50 hand held thermal imager boasts a 1800m max detection range, compared to the 1250m of the XD50S.

Retaining the original features and functionality of the previous and best selling Quantum XD50S, the new Pulsar Quantum XQ50 delivers improved results, with greatly increased detection and image quality.

Not only will this allow you to detect a heat source substantially further, but will also provide enhanced detail and perceived resolution for identification at extended ranges.

With a new 4.1x optical magnification, the Quantum XQ50S gets you up close and personal with your subject matter, with 2x and 4x zoom, to provide up to 16.4x magnification for long distance id of quarry species.

Combined with full colour thermal imaging, a integrated stadiametric rangefinder and market leading image quality, the new Pulsar Quantum XQ50S will be THE thermal imager of choice of the hunting professional.

Rangefinding Reticle:

Quantum XQS has a stadiametric rangefinder system, using a range finding reticle which enables distance measuring to observed objects with known height (Deer 1.7m, Boar 0.7m, Rabbit 0.3m) with a sufficient precision.

The rangefinder is accessed via its own dedicated button now and shows the range for varying species of quarry automatically.

Incremental Magnification Increase

With a 4.1x optical mag, you can also increase the magnification using the zoom button to 8.2x. 12.3x and 16.4x magnification for close up detail, now with minimal break up and distortion compared to previous models.

Automatic Calibration:

The Pulsar Quantum XQ50 features three calibration modes, Silent Manual Mode (M) Automatic (A) and Semi Automatic (H)

Automatic mode automatically calibrates the device where as in H mode, the user decides when the devices requires shutter calibration, and M is carried out by closing the lens cap and manually calibrating for silent calibration in the field. (Auto calibration does emit a very indistinct shutter "zipp" noise, which is virtually silent)

Three viewing modes:

In order to achieve best results in the field the Pulsar Quantum XQ series provides three Viewing modes, City (enhanced contrast), Forest (low contrast), Identification (improved rendering of hot objects' details)

Users can also tailor their display colour from the original blue, to green, white, or red.

New Compound Jack

A new compound jack is equipped to XQ series thermals to allow simultaneous connection of external power and a recording device.

Super Fast Start Up Time

Previously taking up to 9 seconds from boot to view, the new XQ series takes 2 seconds to provide an image from pushing the ON button.

This scope is as good as I hoped it would be, a remarkable bit of kit.
If I had to nit-pick I would mention that even on mimimum brightness the image is a bit too bright on a dark night for my taste (degrades my normal night vision for a minute or two) but that has been simple to improve with a filter in the eyepiece. It will be very useful for night sailing.
Many thanks.
Good performance and clarity at extended range.
buy one and find out!! its a great bit of kit!
Game changing product a bit leap forward.
Very good clear image still getting used to it but great
Excellent bit of kit
