Good catch!

The article also mentions a price reduction of the "old" Flir 1 to $250, and that the new Android-compatible Flir 1 will have improved imaging quality.


If the above image (click to see higher rez) gives us a clue, the visible light portion of the image looks better, but the Thermal Image part looks no better than what is now available.

I think it looks a lot better. Look at the picture he took of his little girl this one is much shaper.

That photo was taking in complete darkness. It was to show the "Nightvision" capabilities of the camera, which is NOT as sharp without the visible spectrum image adding in the detail.

Compare it to any of the OTHER images I took.

Good point I still think it looks like it has a shaper picture.

But either one would work fine for what I would want it for. I just don’t have a iPhone I have an android phone so I will wait for the new one to come out and come down in price to about what you paid.

In my option you got a great product at a good price where technology and cost are right now.

If I was using a iPhone 5 I would not wait for the new product to come out.

That's my understanding.

Some old video cameras had a "Night-Vision" feature on them. They had an infrared light on the front of the camera, and the camera was sensitive to infra-red light. In that mode, the video camera could see in complete darkness, at least up to the point of whatever the light on the front of the camera could illuminate, which wasn't that far away, because it wasn't a very powerful light.

The video image was typically black-and-white or a green monochrome. But yes, that was infrared lighting, NOT thermal imaging. There were also night vision goggles that worked the exact same way. The big down-side is that if you had an IR light, you were extremely visible to anyone else who had the same type of night vision goggles.

With a lot of video cameras, they can see the wavelength of infrared emitted by a typical infrared remote control. Point your remote into a video camera lens and press the button. Chances are, you will be able to see the infrared LED of the remote light up through the viewfinder.

Ok my friend just went by the Flir both at CES.
He said the new model was much better than the current one they had them there to mess with.
The new one won’t be come out until second half of this year.

I remember the good old days, back when you bought something for several hundred dollars and something FOUR times better didn't come out six months later!

*Sigh* technology is basically obsolete the moment you buy it.
Still, the best time to buy something is either right now, or never.
