FLIR ONE

Not sure if you guys have seen this yet, but we stock the FLIR ONE personal thermal image camera:

This may be the next step in your NV arsenal as usually these cameras are massively expensive, but this consumer unit is under £200.

Let us know what you think!

Not one reply - clearly not for you guys then?!

Its a shame, we are a big fan of this camera. Does anyone have any experience with thermal imaging?

These things don't really give us the range we need mate tbh

to put it in perspective. The current favorite (pulsar HD38s) can I.D a fox at 400yrds. Yes its a lot more money but the flir is more money than a digital n.v spotter that would probably give better service

when asking for advice, please include what n.v device and/or illumination you already have (if any) and what rifles you intend to use them on...cheers

Joe,
Sunndog is right - thermals for shooting need large lenses and sensors with lots of pixels (at least 320x240) to be able to see distant targets. The FLIR 1spec sheet doesn't give any information about the focal length of lens used, but the sensor resolution is only 80x60 pixels.
From the photographs of the unit it appears that the lens is small - less than 10mm.
That combination of small lens and low resolution sensor might make it fine for close up work detecting heat differences from large targets like houses, but I'm afraid it's absolutely useless for our purposes.

Cheers
