The FLIR Scout TK is a brand new compact night-vision camera capable of taking thermal images from upwards of 100 yards away.
As a hunter myself, this is a very interesting product because it could be used to identify coyotes and hogs at night in a safe way that doesn’t break the bank.
The FLIR Scout TK weighs merely six ounces, is only four inches long, and comes equipped with heat sensors that enable it to produce thermal images without the need for ambient light.
At $600, the price point might seem steep to some, but for someone who constantly has to let his dog out to go to the bathroom in the middle of the woods at night, I think it’s a great price point assuming it holds up for years.
You could literally use it to keep an eye on your dog as he or she goes to the bathroom, when you’re walking out in the woods at night, and to identify predators, just to name a few applications.
The FLIR Scout TK is made specifically for hunters and outdoorsy hobbyists and could be an essential tool for that niche moving forward.
