FLIR ONE



Now the question becomes - toy, or legitimate substitute for a $2000 FLIR Scout?

Edit: They're also launching a $3,500 FLIR weapons optic, marketed towards hog hunters. Still not cheap, but more affordable than the $10k military quality stuff otherwise available.

  1. Coming later. Android users tend to be cheap and the phones/OS versions are non-standard, making them less attractive to develop for.

  2. I would like to try one out. Saw it over at the firearms blog.

  3. At the begining of the video :
    "The thermal images shown are for illustration purposes only, and may not have been taken by the camera series depicted."

    I want to see it with my own eyes before comenting on this product...

  4. Looks good, but cheap thermal cameras mean it might be time to invest in thermal camo!

  5. The new FLIR site has potential. Certainly not 'common man' but getting into realistic civilian purchasing range. Also into competition with the FLIR scout stuff. Personally as a civilian even in a really nasty situation I can't see myself using FLIR for targeting purposes so much as perimeter detection, scouting, etc so the FLIR scout is more the way I would go over the site.

  6. This system needs to high end to make it worth it and work with the video not pictures. Try using your FLIR in Phoenix, AZ in July when temps at 9:00 PM can be at 100 F. Maybe...maybe..useful in the field or cold environment but it is not a game changer, its a gimmick. Check my kids temp with it? No thanks, I can do that very accurately for about $30. Buy a real FLIR product. What's next NVG for the iPhone?
