FLIR E40 Thermal Imaging Camera

In a word, the FLIR E30 is impressive! From the moment you pick the unit up you can’t help but be impressed. The more I use the camera, the more I like it.

Image Fusion, Blending, Rendering, Multi Spectral Imaging…

Flir i7

FLIR i7

The Flir i7 is the top of the range model in Flir’s new entry level “i” series thermal imaging infrared cameras. As such it supports the larger sized 120x120 which provides a respectable 14,400 pixels of resolution. This is significantly greater than the Flir i5 and Flir i3 which are 6,400 and 3,600 pixels respectively. And boy, does it show! The image is far superior to that of the fledgling models and you might actually consider this camera as a serious contender in the entry level infrared camera market. Being part of a trio, it is virtually impossible to consider this camera in isolation, and as such the review reads more as a compare between the 3 models in the series. Read More »
