For humans, pretty much half of our life is spent in darkness. Once the sun dips below the horizon we’re therefore reliant on artificial lighting to keep us awake and alert during these dark hours. However, over the years we’ve managed to develop rudimentary ways of seeing at night through thermal imagery and various other night vision tactics. But what if we told you there was a way to see clear as day in the middle of the night? Would you believe us? Well, it looks like SPI Infrared has the answer with their X27 Reconnaissance camera.
Featuring an incredible 5,000,000 equivalent ISO rating in a high performance, low noise and high sensitivity camera, the X27 can display full-color vision -as if you were filming in the middle of the day – even in the darkest of nights. It can be used for defense, surveillance, medical purposes, nature and wildlife monitoring among many other practical uses. The piece also boasts an incredible 85,000x luminance gain, an HD 10-megapixel sensor, and can produce color imagery at less than 1 millilux low light levels. Check out the videos below for proof.
