Very high humidity, the thermal could see the critters but the surroundings were not visible.

Yeah, really liked the owl.

Have not had much luck making any sort of significant improvements with settings to improvement fog visibility with my Zeus other than to change to black hot. Black hog creatures tend to contrast better with the background than white hot.

Hard_Ware -

It is great seeing some video from your new Zeus, keep'em coming!

Question: On an early version of the Zeus 3 that I used over a year ago the algorithms weren't active for the animal profiles - no matter what selection was made the display was uneffected. Armasight said they would implement in future firmware/scopes.

Can you do a video showing the effect of those animal changes, I assume there is a "Hog" setting but I find it interesting that coyote gave the best picture...

Thanks!
