L-3 Infrared Products has released the Thermal-Eye X-50, which is an affordable simple to operate handheld camera that only weighs 13 ounces.
The camera stows easily in a pocket, making it possible to access the device quickly in the field or on the run.
Unlike traditional night vision technology, the X-50 is not affected by bright lights, glare or shadows. The X-50 can detect human activity from more than 305m away in total darkness. These features make it ideal for helping users survey an entire scene safely without exposing the location of law enforcement officers or crime scene investigators.
