I have a written statement from FLIR’s sales manager saying that he does not recommend anything less than the FLIR e6 (160x120 resolution) for professional IR home inspections.
The RESNET standards puts the lowest resolution that is functional at 120x120.
If you contact FLIR and ask them to show you in writing that they recommend 80x60 resolution for “Professional Infrared Home Inspections” you will get a variety of answers that dance around the subject. They will tell you to decide for your self. What they have never done is put out a specific statement in writing saying 80x60 resolution can be used at a professional level for building inspections.
Please provide proof that I am wrong, if you can, and I will pay you $100.
To get paid … provide a written statement from FLIR that the C2 camera is a “professional level” camera that can be used for building inspections. FLIR uses the term “professional level” on many of their higher resolution cameras, but avoids that term on the toys.
Just saying a camera can be used to look at bla, bla, bla is not the same thing. It is marketing in general terms and many a novice will buy these type of low resolution cameras because cheap is the only filter their brain uses. It is human nature to look for the easy and cheap way to do something and therefore people are snookered into buying an inferior product that cannot produce reliable results for a professional level infrared building inspection.
