Not really a project, just an idea.
The 35mm Therm App lens is available for $750. Probably £750 by the time you got one here.
The Seek Compact pro is available for $500 or £500. Key fact: It has 14 micron sensor pixels.
Bummer fact: It only has a 15hz frame rate.
Put those 2 together, using the range calculator (thanks whoever wrote it!), gives a 90% bunny detection range of 216 metres, which is about 40% further than a Pulsar XQ30V.
There is a review and importantly, a teardown of the Seek Thermal Compact Pro here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wv7SKRffDyo
It strikes me that it should not be beyond the wit and ingenuity of some here to rip the lens off a Compact Pro and stick the little sensor bit into a carriage behind a Thermapp 35mm lens.
Could be a good spotter. But 3 questions remain:
1. Is it likely to be worth the effort/cost?
2. Am I missing something?
3. Are there other, more promising lens/sensor combinations out there?
built your own thermal unit?.....or done some d.i.y modding on/with your existing unit. post them up here
