Powering the Pulsar Thermion XP and XQ
Welcome to the world of Pulsar Thermion XP and XQ thermal scopes! Let’s start with the basics – powering on and off the device. It’s simple with just a short press of the power button to turn on your trusted Thermion unit. However, turning off the device might not be as straightforward as you think. Holding down the power button starts a countdown timer, and only when it hits zero, the unit is completely powered off. But make sure you don’t let off the power button before this countdown has hit zero!
Power up and down process
Let’s make powering up your device just as manageable as starting a new game on your console. A short press of the power button springs your unit to life ready for the action ahead. To switch it off isn’t all that complicated either. Hold down the power button and you’ll spot a countdown timer on your screen. As it hits zero, your Thermion unit powers down, leaving it in a state of rest until your next adventure beckons.
Understanding the sleep mode
Now let’s talk a bit about the sleep mode – a useful feature when you want to save some battery life. If you let off the power button before the countdown hits zero, your unit enters a restful sleep mode. Rest assured, it is still alert and will wake up with just a short press of the power button.
Zoom Features of the Pulsar Thermion XP and XQ
The Pulsar Thermion XP and XQ thermal scopes are known for their zoom functions, which take your spotting game to a whole new level.
Describing the zoom function
With just a short press of the zoom button, you can scale up the zoom, doubling it each time. This feature enables you to get a close-up view of your target, helping you take a more accurate shot.
Understanding Picture-in-Picture mode
But that’s not all! The Thermion also houses the Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode. A long press of the zoom button activates the PiP mode. This mode overlays a zoomed-in target on the display without compromising the field of view, giving you the best of both worlds. You can scale the PiP box by pressing the zoom button when the PiP mode is active. A long press of the zoom button will remove this mode when you are done.
Video and Photo Capture Capabilities
Want to record your hunting adventures or capture that perfect shot? The Pulsar Thermion XP and XQ offer you that and more!
Starting and stopping video recording
Recording videos with your Pulsar Thermion device is child’s play. A short press of the record button starts recording, while a long press will stop and save the video. If you’re recording and short press the button, it pauses the video but doesn’t stop and save it.
Shifting between video and photo mode
Transforming your Pulsar Thermion from video mode into photo mode is seamless with a long press of the record button when not recording. Now, your trail is set to take still shots of your target when you short press the button.
Capturing a still shot
Capturing still shots works differently in photo mode. With the device already in photo mode, treating the record button with a short press will capture a still shot. Now you can preserve the memory of that perfect target!
Using the Navigational Dial
The navigational dial on your Thermion device is your magic wand to an easy and productive hunting experience, making shortcuts and adjustments a breeze.
Accessing the shortcut menu
