We received a few units of the new ThOR HD and will be testing and hunting with the units over the next few weeks. Here is a short video from the first coyote hunt with the new ThOR HD 384 4.5X 50mm.



Initial impressions:

Overall image quality is great, love the onboard recording, menus are quick and responsive, although the layout takes some getting used to and there needs to be a faster way to calibrate and switch polarity. The image in white hot looks really good, black hot looks washed out. It would definitely benefit from an independent contrast/gain adjustment. Seems like the automatic gain control could use a little refinement - the screen flickers a lot when panning across various foreground and background objects. I need to spend some more time using the scope and familiarizing myself with some of the other features and functions, but so far I'm pleasantly surprised by this unit.

Nice video. You got some good looking deer already at that place.

Some interesting chatter about the scopes in the optics section. Hope the glitches and issues they been having over there are not the norm. I really have enjoyed my Thor 336 and might be looking at getting a second in the future, so interested to see how these Thor HD go...

Nice! Hope they get all the bugs out.

If only the programmers had a clue eeks333 the thermals out on the market would all be like the IR hunters image.
Not a better core but better thinking.
