Heya all. I am on search for these. 

The ones I have found have been Flir, Axis and Motobix.

They super expensive! :< . Hoping for a few cheaper options on the Market?

Thanks

J

@Energy take a look at the Hikvision cameras at http://www.sensorsecurity.co.za/product-category/surveillancevideo/cameras-thermal/. Hikvision makes great stuff and we have just bought a number of cameras for our village CCTV system. Not thermal imaging though however much we would like to. Just too pricey for a system funded by voluntary donations.

You can get a plug in option for you phone to make it a FLIR camera. I think they were about R3k . I haven't tried one but apparently they work very well.

You could also add Fluke and SeeK thermal imagers to your search. The Seek range is more cost effective.

I have 2 thermal imagers that i am thinking of selling if you are potentially interested in a second hand unit.

Fluke Ti10:  -  R3000

Detector Resolution: 160 by 120, Thermal Sensitivity: 130 mK

Fluke TiR32:  -  R27 000

Detector Resolution: 320 by 220, Thermal Sensitivity: 50 mK

Took some thermal pics, of our rainwater tanks, after a lovely downpour in Cape Town last night. Tank levels increased significantly.

I usually do this by hand. Run your hand up the side of the tank. Works better at night when the air temperature falls, it is easier to feel the cold air on top with the warm water below. During the day I find it is not as easy to feel the edge of the cold water with the hot air on top.

All awesome cams.

I am looking for a unit for security.

They all very pricey.  Your thoughts? 

Jay

My thoughts: Yes, they are pricey. Can't wait for it to be more affordable ;)

The CAT S60 phone has a built in FLIR camera

 

I would never buy, or freely acquire a CAT phone again in my life. We brought 6 CAT S50 phones a few years ago and they all broke. My wife's fell off the bed and the screen shattered in a thousand pieces. 2 of them have a broken SIM card slot and the other's also broke their screens. When I contacted support they gave me nothing. Nada. Buggeroll support. Yet my Sony, Huawei and Samsung endure a lot of punishment on a regular basis and don't break like this.

Thanks for the heads up. I thought I might get one and use it to check for hot spots on DBs etc.
