HIKMICRO Panther PH50L 2.0 Thermal Image Scope with Laser Range Finder (50 mm).

Review: Optics Warehouse

Building upon the success of the original Panther, the all-new 2.0 version adds sub 20mK NETD sensitivity for extreme clarity and amazing identification ability. Built-in 600m Laser Range finding, with new Ballistics Calculator (available Dec 23), compact form, solid construction, long battery life (with detachable 18650 battery), and on-board recording & sharing complete the impressive specification – an outstanding Thermal Scope at an ultra-competitive price-point.

Developed to be ergonomic and easy to use in the dark, the Panther has a robust focus ring fitted behind the objective lens. All of the other major controls are completed by the innovative jog dial. Rotating the jog dial adjusts the magnification, pressing and holding will load the menu, which can then be navigated and controlled from the dial. There are only 2 other buttons on the Panther, one controls the Laser Rangefinder, the other is used to power the unit on or put it into standby mode.

The Panther PQ50L 2.0 comes with either HIKMICRO’s 640x512px, 12µm sensor – with sub 20mk NETD performance. This highly accurate thermal sensor is capable of detecting tiny temperature differences, building a highly detailed image, even in the harshest of conditions.

The thermal sensor is paired with HIKMICRO’s high performance 50mm focal length lens system that delivers 2.3x base optical magnification. The 8x digital zoom gives a maximum magnification of 18x. The thermal lens system has a high specification F1.0 aperture, which means there are no restrictions in the lens system and all of the available thermal signals can reach the sensor to deliver outstanding thermal performance in all conditions.

The large 1024x768px OLED display gives you an excellent view of your target and your surroundings. The display can be customised to include the option of Picture-In-Picture and the Laser Rangefinder readings can be altered to suit your style of shooting. You can also select from 4 thermal colour palettes White Hot, Black Hot, Fusion and Red Hot.

The Panther uses HIKMICRO’s latest software which includes an updated zeroing system with a one shot zero, making it quick and easy to get the Scope setup with your Rifle. You also have the ability to record pictures and video of your shooting trips directly to the Scope or you can use the App to stream, record and control your Panther from your mobile phone.

The robust chassis joins to the supplied Picatinny rail making it easy to attach to your Rifle and achieve the perfect eye relief. With a recoil rating of 750 g/ms the Panther will perform on large calibre Rifles such as .375 H7H without a problem. The IP67 rating means that the Scope is waterproof, and you can continue shooting in the worst of the weather.

The Panther 2.0 is powered by the industry standard 18650 removable battery. This makes extended hunting trips possible without any power concerns. Replacement batteries are readily available and economical to buy. There is also a high specification charger included with your Panther, which provides the charging status and health of your batteries, ensuring you will never be caught in the field with a dead battery.

All thermal sensors used in HIKMICRO products are designed, developed and manufactured by HIKMICRO. This guarantees you unrivalled performance and value for money. You are also covered by the 3-year HIKMICRO warranty and 10-years on the detector.
