FLIR - Infared
« on: March 31, 2015, 11:27:42 PM »
This is a link to a new FLIR that just came out for home builders. I can certainly see a use for them in the woods for hunters. Better tech and smaller package and the price is not terrible and I could write it off!

I would be afraid to use one of those to check my house.  It was built in the early 60's, and apparently it was the builder's first house.  Either he didn't know what he was doing or he was just practicing.   Then again, another thing I have to contend with is what the 4 previous owners did. 

I could see where a hunter could use something like that, for locating wounded game.

I'd love to have a FLIR camera to use for the predawn and the dusk hours on the stand, just to see what's out there.

The electricians where I used to work, would use an infrared camera to troubleshoot electrical panels.  It was interesting to the the images when they pointed the camera at a person.
