Leica Calonox 2

The new generation of thermal imaging technology.

Over the past few years, the renowned Leica Calonox thermal imagers have become proven partners for wildlife observation. Now, the new generation – Leica Calonox 2 – wins users over with a future-proof technology package of outstanding product features. In addition to the classic Calonox 2 View thermal camera, an additional model (LRF) features Leicas leading laser rangefinder, fully integrated. All two models are equipped with a powerful optics package and Leicas LIO™ image optimization software. The iconic Leica design focuses on the essentials and is entirely geared towards ergonomics and intuitive operation. Made entirely in Germany, high-precision manufacturing not only guarantees the most accurate measurements and perfectly coordinated components, but also enables maximum detail recognition, color gradations, optimum contrasts, and high detail resolution.

  • designed & made in Germany
  • sharp, high-contrast images, rich in detail
  • light and compact construction
  • high-quality LYNRED sensor with 640 x 480 pixels and 12-micron pixel pitch (12 µm)
  • with photo and video function

Designed & made in Germany.

The Leica Calonox 2 thermal cameras are developed and manufactured entirely in Germany. In addition to their revolutionary shape, the Leica Calonox View LRF features a fully-integrated laser rangefinder whose market-leading precision and reliability has been appreciated in the Leica Geovid models for decades. As a result, nature observers now have absolute certainty in identifying and assessing wildlife and its surroundings, even at night.

Superior image quality, contrast, and detail.

Superior image quality, contrast, and detail.

Nature observers can count on optimum performance. A natural, sharp, high-contrast image is guaranteed by the high-quality sensor in conjunction with the LIO™ (Leica Image Optimization) software developed by Leica. An object with the standard size of 1.8 meters can be clearly found at up to 2210 meters. Recognition is possible at 770 meters and reliable identification at 390 meters. The new Leica Calonox 2 View models are next-generation thermal cameras for wildlife observation – with a clear focus on practical, essential features.

Noiseless shutter.

The Leica Calonox 2 thermal cameras feature a softwarebased shutter rather than a mechanical one. This, for the first time, allows the image to be recalibrated without delay or noise. In other words, at the moment the thermal image obtained by the Leica Calonox 2 is readjusted or recalibrated, the image no longer “freezes”. And no disturbing mechanical sound is produced. The nature oberserver can detect wildlife at very close range in a relaxed, safe and, above all, inconspicuous manner – without the image freezing.


Particularly light and compact.

In line with Leica principles, the light and compact yet rugged construction of a Leica product is a key component of its design. Developed and made in Germany, the Leica Calonox 2 models are reduced to their essential functions. Simultaneously, thanks to their technical features, they are absolutely future-proof. Anyone who picks up the Leica Calonox 2 for the first time will immediately notice the high design standards combined with practical controls, a revolutionary compact shape, and low weight. In particular, the non-military look distinguishes the Leica Calonox 2 models from other products.
