I was going to dump about 8 grand into a thermal
but now I’m going to play the wait n see game.
My top agents I use tell me that thermal isn’t even asked for by anybody so don’t bother .
But the techie in me already has made my mind up I simply need one to perform a complete inspection.
I don’t want to miss a thing .
So I’m going to grab one for a small amount now spend my extra on a seesnake for orangeburg sewer tile inspections.
Currently the Testo 876 looks pretty damn good for reports as it has some decent software and I can create picture overlays and import them into my
HIP report templates.
The super res creating a 320 x 240 is hopeful , I have alot of faith in German engineering having worked for Liebherr for 11 years, they are sticklers.
Does anybody have actual hands on experience with the Testso 876 ? for home inspections?
I can grab a deluxe package with the telephoto lens and extra battery etc for 4 G.
I’m not sure the telephoto lens is necessary ? I’d rather have a wide angle and I’ll research the specs on the stock lens it comes with . the 1 G for the deluxe package is probably a waste.
I love that this model has variable focus abilities.
I’ll drop 10 g later this year for a nice camera but for now in the initial part of 2014 I’m going to shop wise.
I’ll pursue actual commercial thermal jobs after I get my certs completed and spend gather field experience for the first year playing with this Testo if I get it.
I’m considering the Testo 882 later this year .
