Pulsar Quantum XQ38 Thermal Camera Details

*** Please note that the Pulsar Quantum XQ38 has been discontinued. It has been replaced by the Pulsar Helion XQ38F Thermal Scope, available here. ***


The Pulsar Quantum XQ38 is a powerful thermal handheld scope, designed to help you track animals through the dark, bad weather conditions and even through sparse foliage, trees and other obsctacles such as tall grass.

In outdoor animal tracking applications, thermal technology has a huge advantage over conventional night vision equipment. Despite its name, NV equipment still relies on some form of visible light to make an image. In practice, this could mean you easily miss things, just as if you were viewing with binoculars in strong daylight. Thermal doesn't have this limitation; thermal cameras instead see the heat given off by an object and display it on an image, allowing them to be used in both day and nighttime conditions with absolutely no drop in performance!

Want to see the camera in use? This video from Pulsar breaks down the functionality of the Quantum series.

The Pulsar Quantum XQ38 is filled with features: it has adjustable colour palettes (7 in total), a built-in rangefinding reticle (shows the distance to a target), high refresh rate of 50Hz, different operating modes (city, forest and identification) and it even starts up in under 2 seconds, catering for those applications when you need your equipment quickly (it's also great for saving the battery life!).
