Hikmicro “Gryphon 35mm (GQ35)”
The Gryphon fusion monocular introduces many unique features including ground-breaking bi-spectrum, Fusion technology which uses a thermal sensor alongside a conventional optical camera to deliver a super-detailed thermal image.
You can use the Gryphon in several distinct image modes including a conventional thermal monocular with the choice of 4 colour palettes, highly detailed daylight & night vision optical camera or the unique Fusion mode which uses the detail from the optical channel to boost the definition and detail of the thermal image.
The Gryphon chassis also introduces a range of new features. These include a jog wheel that allows you to scroll the magnification up and down as you would with a conventional optical scope, an optional laser range finder and a removable 18650 battery. The large 1024×768 OLED display gives you a bright and crisp view of your surroundings that’s easy on your eye.
At the centre of the Gryphon is HIKMICRO’s 384x288px, 12µm thermal sensor with a sub 35mk NETD. This highly accurate thermal sensor is capable of detecting small temperature differences, building a highly detailed image, even in the harshest of conditions.
The thermal sensor is paired with HIKMICRO’s high performance 35mm focal length lens system which delivers 3.3x optical magnification with up to 8x digital magnification also available to expand the detail in your image. The thermal lens system also has a high specification F1.0 aperture, this means that all of the available thermal signal reaches the sensor. This combines with the highly accurate thermal sensor to deliver excellent thermal performance.
This is paired with a high-resolution optical camera that is capable of providing a detailed image both in daylight hours and in complete darkness using the supplied IR torch. You can quickly switch between pure thermal view and the detailed optical mode to detect and accurately identify heat sources.
The Gryphon also includes the unique Fusion mode which adds the detail from the optical image to boost the performance of the thermal channel, delivering the ultimate in detection and detail.
The Gryphon uses an all-new chassis design which has been developed to be easily held and operated in one hand. There are three buttons on the top of the unit that make it easy to operate the laser range finder and switch between image modes. HIKMICRO have also included a revolutionary jog wheel that falls comfortably to the tip of your index finger and can be used to scroll up and down the magnification like a conventional optical scope. This jog wheel is also used to quickly navigate the menu system.
The 600m laser range finder is located on the left-hand side of the unit in a compact housing and offers a distance reading accurate to ±1m. When activated there is a small crosshair added to the display that can be used to target the rangefinder. Simply press and hold the Rangefinder button and the distance to your target is displayed on the screen.
The Gryphon is also the first Monocular in the HIKMICRO range to be powered by the industry standard 18650 removable battery. This makes extended hunting trips possible without any power concerns. Replacement batteries are readily available and economical to buy. There is also a high specification charger included with your Gryphon, this provides lots of detail about the charging status and health of your batteries ensuring that you aren’t caught in the field with a dead battery.
There are lots of other small improvements that have been included like the power button includes a status light so you can see at a glance if the unit is powered on or in standby mode.
