Update – now available from specialist retailers: the brand new Hikmicro Habrok 4K thermal imaging binoculars – an all-in-one solution for day, night and especially twilight

+++ UPDATE May 15, 2024 +++ We already reported on the new, innovative Habrok 4K thermal imager from Hikmicro at IWA 2024 a few months ago. The manufacturer has now announced that the device is available from specialist retailers. The special feature of the Habrok 4K is the universal usability of the device: as a thermal imager, it not only combines night hunting capabilities with daytime usability, it also has a built-in laser rangefinder. It is therefore basically full-color 5.5-22x60 binoculars with a thermal imaging monocular and laser rangefinder. Thanks to the dual camera technology, the hunter can zoom without losing quality. It should be possible to aim at distances of up to 150 meters. The built-in IR illuminator for the day and night vision channel is available in wavelengths of 850 nm and 940 nm. The recommended retail price for both models is 1,499 euro. We are currently working on an field test.

All detailed information about the new HABROK 4k in our presentation from the IWA 2024

Hikmicro presented a new, innovative thermal device at IWA Outdoor Classics 2024. The model name is Hikmicro Habrok 4K. The device is intended to offer a very wide range of applications, not only as a classic companion at night, but also during the day. We already took a first look at the new Hikmicro Habrok 4K thermal imaging binoculars for you.

"For far too long, thermal imaging optics have been seen as something that is only for night hunting. We are redefining the digital optics industry with a range of products that can compete with traditional optics not only at night, but also during the day and with many amazing additional digital features," explains the Hikmicro Global Brand Manager at the launch of the Hikmicro Habrok 4K. And with this, he also makes the direction of travel of this year's new presentation at the IWA clear: thermal optics can be used not just for night hunting. With the right technology package, daytime use also makes perfect sense. And Hikmicro has developed the new Habrok 4K for this purpose.

The new model is deliberately intended as a universal all-in-one solution. In other words, an optic that the hunter can use in any hunting situation. We have already taken a closer look at what it has to offer:

The new Hikmicro Habrok 4K thermal binoculars in detail

Hikmicro introduces the Habrok 4K, an innovative technology in the field of binoculars for daytime use. The new device combines multiple functions in a single optic, serving as full-colour 5.5-22x60 binoculars, thermal imaging monocular and laser rangefinder.

Hikmicro's dual camera technology uses thermal imaging for optimised search and a CMOS sensor to view details precisely. The ability to zoom in on the subject without sacrificing image quality allows hunters to target game at distances of at least 150 meters.

With a 4K UHD image resolution, the Habrok 4K is designed to deliver vivid and detailed images. The 60-mm lenses in combination with the 5.5-22x magnification offers a wide range of observation options, from viewing wide landscapes to observing the smallest details. Even in complete darkness or deep shadow, animals can be localised thanks to their heat radiation. Thanks to a powerful thermal lens and sensor, targets the size of a deer can be detected up to a distance of 1,200 metres. After locating in thermal mode, you can switch to day mode for detailed observation.

The device also includes a laser rangefinder with a range of up to 1,000 meters and an accuracy of ±1 meter. Continuous measurement is also possible with moving targets, which can be particularly advantageous for inexperienced hunters. In addition, the Habrok 4K offers the option of making video and audio recordings and viewing them directly on site without the need for an app or Bluetooth connection.

Despite all this technology in the device, Hikmicro says it is important that the Habrok 4K retains the traditional design and user-friendliness of conventional binoculars. The aim is to offer users the benefits of digital technology without having to sacrifice the familiar look and feel of traditional binoculars.

In addition to the dual observation function for day and night, the new Hikmicro Habrok 4K also has an integrated laser rangefinder with a range of up to 1,000 meters.

Background to the market launch of the Hikmicro Habrok 4K

Hikmicro's main goal is to transform thermal products from a niche product into a mass market product. Image quality, user-friendliness and reliability are at the centre of the company's philosophy. According to the manufacturer, these principles apply from the initial idea to the delivery of the finished product. The range is constantly being expanded and combines thermal technology with CMOS technology to offer hunters advanced and user-friendly products that are also suitable for daytime use.

Prices and availability of the new Hikmicro Habrok 4K are not yet known to the editorial team. We will keep you informed and update the article here as soon as information is available.
