Cheap entry level thermal camera

Cheap entry level thermal camera

Hey everyone,

I would love to find out if anyone has had experience with Flir One Pro and Flir i3. From what I have read they both seems to be entry level cheap thermal imaging cameras. Is it worth for me spending a few hundred dollars more on the i3? Looks like the sensor on Flir One pro is 160 x 120, and i3 is only 60 x 60. Does this mean that the quality is better on the one pro?

Appreciate your advice.

RE: Cheap entry level thermal camera

Kind of depends on what you want it to do.

According to specs, while the Flir One Pro has more pixels, it also has a much larger field of view 55 deg vs 12 deg, and poorer accuracy.

I recently picked up a Seek CompactPro because it has the best specifications in a cheap camera for my close up PCBA viewing.
