Zeiss presents its new high-end thermal imaging camera! The German-designed and made Zeiss DTI 6 features exceptional image quality with enhanced detail, an intuitive operating system and controls, a long battery runtime and a host of other features that create a new standard in thermal imaging units for hunters.
“The ZEISS DTI 6 is a reflection of our many years of development, dedication, and expertise,” said Tammo Lueken, Head of Category Management Hunting at Zeiss.
Large temperature differences (a warm animal against a cold sky, for example) can cause image prcoessing algorithms to struggle, making details harder to pick out and consequently making positive identification of the animal more difficult.
The ZSIP Pro image processing algorithm in the DTI 6 takes detail recognition to a new level. In addition to preprocessing the sensor signal to achieve excellent image quality and noise reduction, the algorithm also optimizes contrast by dividing the entire image into several quadrants and optimizing them individually.
The device also intelligently adapts and sharpens the image so that he heat sources from the game stands out from the background with high contrast and sharpness. Together with a 640 x 480 sensor with 12-micron pixel pitch, a high-resolution 1024 x 768 HD AMOLED display, and the new DynamicZoom concept with optical magnification of 1.5x or 3.0x (and digital zoom of up to 10x), the Zeiss DTI 6 provides hunters the ability to identify quarry quickly and without doubt.
Thanks to the ErgoControl concept (a precise scroll wheel on top of the unit) and the easy-to-navigate user interface, you can select different zoom levels and individual menu items easily and precisely. This allows for fast and intuitive handling for both left- and right-handed users, even in stressful situations or while wearing glove.
The specially developed eyepiece was designed to be perfectly compatible with the screen, which almost completely fills the field of view and thus offers an immersive viewing experience, even for people who wear glasses.
A 6.5 hour battery runtime, a smart standby mode that automatically turns off or on when the unit is lowered or raised, the Zeiss DTI 6 provides smart power management for maximum run time.
Integration with the Zeiss Hunting App supports easy data transfer via Bluetooth, which automatically switches to Wi-Fi when transferring larger amounts of data.
In addition, a wide range of configuration options - such as the ability to set a preferred zoom speed or select from different observation modes - allow hunters to fully customize the DTI 6 to their individual needs. Zeiss will release new firmware updates on a regular basis to continuously enhance the DTI, which users can easily download via the Zeiss Hunting app and install on the device themselves.
Whether in the forest or out in the field, the thermal imaging camera needs to meet demands that vary from situation to situation. The long 40mm focal length of the DTI 6/40 provides a wider field of view for use in the open field, while the 20mm focal length makes the DTI 6/20 perfect for identifying game in forested areas. These lenses are available as an additional purchase, and can be used to adapt the camera to different hunting situations.
