thermal novice

Post by robindrury » 17 May 2018, 14:27

well i took the plunge at the Harrogate show and bought a hellion 38f charged it up and switched it on Brill
what I'm not sure of, is just switching it on all that's needed to get the best out of it ??
the calibration is set to A and all the settings are at default, should I leave well alone
any advice please

If you're happy with the image, then probably leave it as it is, but it's your toy, so play with it!!!
(There's also a RESET function, so you can always get it back to the factory settings)
You might want to try changing the brightness and contrast to see if you can improve the image.
You might also find that, depending on weather conditions, different settings for brightness and contrast will give a better image than the "out of the box" settings. Also have a play with the digital zoom so that you can see what potential targets look like at higher magnifications.

Cheers

As Bruce says playing with the brightness and contrast can make quite a difference, enjoy.
