ZEISS DTI 3/35 Thermal Imaging Camera in More Detail

Intuitive ergonomics for night observation

The ZEISS DTI 3/35 is an innovative digital ZEISS spotting scope with familiar quality and a unique ergonomic design. Thermal imaging at night opens new doors to observe birds and other wildlife, which can be located and identified without disturbance from a light source. Even in complete darkness, the DTI 3/35 Thermal Imaging Camera will produce detailed images for an unforgettable experience.

ZEISS ErgoControl Concept

Thanks to the intelligently positioned buttons, all of the features can be controlled intuitively. The distinctly shaped controls can be quickly identified, even in the dark and when wearing gloves.

Outstanding optical performance is achieved through a perfect combination of the lens, sensor, electronics, screen, and eyepiece. The DTI 3 family of thermal imaging cameras, which includes the ZEISS DTI 3/25 (880m range), stands out thanks to unique ergonomics in the form of the ErgoControl operating concept. This provides intelligently positioned buttons, which makes it easy to intuitively activate all of the functions.

The perfect ergonomic design offers excellent handling in cold and dark conditions and ensures that both right-handed and left-handed users can operate the device comfortably.

Detailed images in total darkness

Precise zoom

The fine, gradual zoom adjustment in 0.5x increments offers the perfect combination of magnification and detail recognition.

Enhanced camouflage

Thanks to the LED-Off feature, the status display of the ZEISS DTI 3/35 can be switched off manually, in order to prevent the light from being seen by the wildlife subject.

Long 10-hour battery life

The ZEISS DTI 3 has an impressive battery life of 10 hours for night-long observation and the standby feature conserves battery power by automatically shutting off the thermal imaging camera after 60 minutes of inactivity. Perfect if you fall asleep while observing nature at night!

Outstanding optics with ZEISS quality

The high-resolution 1,280 x 960 pixel HD-LCOS display delivers detailed images, even in total darkness.

Innovative image processing algorithms and first-class ergonomics are just two of the features that make the new ZEISS DTI 3 stand out. The Contrast Boost feature maximises contrast to see as much detail as possible, even in foggy or humid conditions. In picture-in-picture mode, a focus frame highlights the enlarged image section for improved focusing.
