How does this compare to flir models?

No idea just saw this and posted for all to see .

If you know that you want to get into IR but unsure about which camera to buy. One of the things you can do is sign up for Level I (I prefer FLIR) and ask them to loan you a camera for the class.

You can then try out the camera and you will also get an opportunity to talk to other people who will be using other types of cameras. You can ask questions, discuss with the instructor etc.

By the end of the certification, you will have a good idea on what you want.

That’s good advice, for sure and worth repeating. While it may not make sense before, it will later.

I would guess that while many of the every level cameras are tempting as the price of admission is low, the shortcomings to fail to add revenue may be high.

Just wanted to add that - everyone has got to have ‘a’ camera in the class (at least with ITC). So if there are 20 people in the class, chances are that there is going to be about +5 different types of cameras. Eight hours a day for 4 days, that is a lot of exposure.

This should greatly help in the decision making process.

Oh also, with FLIR (ITC), they charge you $100 for the loaner camera. I do not remember if it was $100 for 4 days or $100 per day but if you are buying from them they waive the loaner fee. This was over 2 years ago, things might be different now.


cool link, might be a good starter camera, thermal picture is poor looking as its a blur.
the blend feature could be useful in helping determine what the blur was off, lol.

In canada the home depot does not loan the IR cameras, as of yet.

No idea if this is good or bad but I do think DEWALT is usually a great product.

I have an album of some thermal images that I had taken with different Infrared Cameras for those looking around at cameras. If you view a photo, you can click the “Photo Details” tab on right in Google + to see imager used.

At the end of the day, if the manufacturer cannot release thermal sensitivity and/or resolution then there is something not right about the camera. These are basic specifications. They hide them for a reason.

There are really good cameras in the $2700 range now a days. I have yet to see a good sub $1500 camera and only one that I would consider for specific applications (building is one of those applications) in the sub $2k range.

There are a lot of guys on here that bought a camera from us a year or two ago in the sub $4k arena that are now buying $8k plus cameras. There is a reason for this. I am not saying to start at that level, but I would also highly recommend not buying anything sub $2k either.

For sub $3k you can produce 320x240 images from a 50mk camera (thermal sensitivity is the most important stat you guys need to be looking at.
