The Pulsar Helion XP50 is the best thermal camera commercially available, enabling easy detection of wildlife day or night.
Not limited to just wildlife and documentaries, our camera has been utilised for plenty of inventive and alternative uses including music videos, experimental film and even searching for a lost dog!

Day or Night
Better than night vision, thermal vision allows you to see animals distinctly against their surroundings in both day and night
With a waterproof rating of IPX7 and an operational temperature range of -25ºC to +50ºC, it will work whatever the weather
Frequently Asked Questions
With night vision, a camouflaged animal will still be hidden amongst its surroundings, whereas with thermal vision, they will glow and stand out from the foliage and any cover.
For those that are interested, the visible light wavelength is 400-700 (violet through to red) nanometers in width; night vision ‘sees’ 700-1000nm wavelengths (just past visible red, hence the name infrared) and thermal cameras detect 8-14µm (micrometer) wavelengths (8000-14,000 nanometers/0.008-0.014 millimeters) – much further than either the visible or night vision spectrums.
Also worth noting is that you cannot see through glass with a thermal camera. Glass blocks the wavelengths the camera sees in and actually reflects a thermal image just like a mirror, so you won’t be able to look out of your window, nor will you be able to see into anyone elses!
