ZEISS DTI 3/35 – The First Thermal Imaging Camera from ZEISS

The combination of high-contrast images with intuitive and ergonomic operation makes ZEISS DTI 3/35 the perfect choice for hunting in the darkness and at night

ZEISS will unveil a thermal imaging camera developed specifically for hunting

ZEISS is proud to announce the release of the ZEISS DTI 3/35, its first thermal imaging camera specially developed for hunting. The thermal imaging camera combines a high-resolution display that delivers detailed images, even in the darkness and at night, with a well-balanced, ergonomic design. “The combination of high-contrast images in the darkness with intuitive and ergonomic operation makes ZEISS thermal imaging technology the perfect choice for night hunting,” said Tammo Lüken, Head of Product Management for Nature Observation and Hunting at ZEISS. “As a result, we make it possible for hunters to accurately identify their target, even in poor lighting conditions, turning hunting at night into a unique experience.”

Guaranteed Hunting Success – Even in the Dark

Thanks to the arrangement of the control buttons optimized as part of the ErgoControl concept and the device’s specially designed shape, the ZEISS DTI 3/35 is extremely intuitive to use. The controls are arranged so that they can be identified quickly and accurately – even in the dark and cold with gloves on.

Even the high-precision zoom has been designed to accommodate difficult conditions in the dark – with its fine, step-by-step adjustment in 0.5x increments, the zoom offers the perfect combination of magnification and detail recognition and allows the user to quickly switch between zoom levels. Whether it is for game observation and detection or accurate identification, selecting the necessary zoom level is easy and reliable.

Live Streaming via the ZEISS Hunting App

Using the ZEISS Hunting app, hunters can transfer and share data, photos, and videos from the thermal imaging camera to a smartphone via cable or WiFi and even live-stream their hunting adventures.

The Specialist for Difficult Lighting Conditions

“We know that the most thrilling hunting moments often occur after sunset and that you can experience particularly intensive encounters with nature when hunting at night,” explained Lüken, referring to decades of expertise in hunting in the dark and at night. “Based on this expertise, the next logical move for us was to develop new, digital solutions and thus also thermal imaging cameras,” continued Lüken. The newly developed DTI 3/35 thermal imaging camera from ZEISS achieves the seemingly impossible: it sees details that remain hidden from the human eye. This not only makes hunting at night more fascinating, but also more successful.


The ZEISS DTI 3/35 will be released in time for the upcoming hunting season and will be available from specialist dealers starting from autumn 2020.
