Where to buy


Compact, Light, Durable

At only 298 grams, PYTHON easily fits into your pocket or backpack, so you can use it quickly in any situation. Its CNC-milled, nitrogen-filled housing is built from a single magnesium block to ensure maximum durability in long outdoor trips. Our individual testing process ensures guaranteed quality and unmatched reliability.

A-Core Module

Developed by Nitehog, the A-Core is an ultra-compact imaging engine, based on cutting-edge hardware solutions and dedicated video processing algorithms, that provides superior image quality and proven precision in the hardest environmental conditions.

Enhanced observation performance

To improve image performance, PYTHON uses two types of auto contrasting scenes that upgrade your outdoor vision and make you fully aware of changes in your sight.

This filter quickly identifies abrupt changes in the scene’s dynamic, which makes it perfect for detection and observation.

This filter is providing stability in the image by overriding sudden changes, which makes it the best choice for observing panoramic scenes that combine forest and sky, earth and sky, scenes on the horizon, etc.

Long-distance detection range

By combining our powerful F 1.2 lens with the sensor’s sensitivity, PYTHON can spot a target in up to 750 meters.

Sharp vision with Nitehog Image Razor

The Nitehog Image Razor technology enables our versatile software processing which applies different enhancements for a sharper vision in many conditions (fog, rain, snow, smoke, and total darkness). The level of those alterations depends on the customer’s preference to the image they see and can be applied to any scene.

Sophisticated image anywhere

By using our own sophisticated germanium objective lens with scratch resistant hard carbon coating and a 12-micron pixel pitch, PYTHON provides a fast 60 Hz frame, which means crystal clear observation of any object with no lag.

Water resistance

PYTHON carries the IP 66 certification

Extended battery life

Image modes

PYTHON offers a variety of image modes for different environments, situations, and personal preferences.

White hot

White Hot is a versatile choice for observing urban areas and shifting landscapes that displays warmer objects in white and cooler objects in black.

Black hot

Black Hot displays warmer objects in black and cooler ones in white, which makes it a preferred mode among hunters and law enforcement.

Red hot

Red Hot is a recommended mode for prolonged observation. The red-black image minimizes blue light emissions from the display and reduces eyes strain from extended usage.


The isotherm mode colors objects above the threshold temperature in different shades of red. The temperature threshold can be set (increase/decrease) by the temperature scale available.

Outdoor sports activities

PYTHON is the perfect addition to your equipment set for your outdoor hobbies as it will give you an upgraded sense of your surroundings by allowing you to navigate in the toughest atmospheric conditions.

Nature preservation

PYTHON is the perfect tool for the observing the migration and calculating the population of animals in extended areas. It can even ensure the security of livestock in farms during harvesting periods.

Buildings and engineering

PYTHON is capable of monitoring and spotting abnormal heat signatures across buildings, warehouse areas and industrial equipment to prevent any unwanted damage.

Surveillance and security

PYTHON is an incredible asset for observing and securing large building sites and extended living areas.

First-call services

Due to its technical advantages, PYTHON could easily be applied in emergency situations by policemen, firefighters, mountain rescuers, and even volunteers.
