Thermal on the cheap

Well, I have wanted a thermal MUM for a while, but the cost is out of this world, but there are alternatives.

http://www.flir.com/flirone/order/

Two issues.
1. It hasn't released, yet.
2. It is being released for the iPhone first.

Being familiar with thermal the resolution is pretty poor. Having said that the price is awesome for the ability to see in the dark

My TWS can image individual hairs on a human face at 20 feet no problem...

..but many other units I have T&E definitely suck on resolution.

Planning on having the Thermal add on to my cell phone.




Would be really cool if the Thermal add-on would integrate well with this app on my phone...

I am thinking of using the thermal to spot warm bodies, then gen3 NV to ID and shoot it.

That may be the coolest way to hijack my thread. How do they sight it in?

I hope they make it with a digiscope so I can run NV and thermal in split screen.

I love how they have virtually no information on their website about it.

Electronic adjustments..

..you can even have presets for different guns & loads.

The app is a really cool backup option..

..did I mention it is FREE..

..lots of functionality. ..

..such as weapons light w/strobe, weapons video, HUD, etc

The weapons mount will cost you though if you decide to mount your phone.

Two issues.
1. It hasn't released, yet.
2. It is being released for the iPhone first.
Fwiw, I talked to someone at FLIR tech support a couple weeks ago, and they 'promised' it 'should' be released right about the end of July. Like a lot of people, I've been on the notification list for months (it was supposed to have been released in April iirc), and a couple weeks ago, finally just called & asked. We'll see...

The resolution likely won't be great, but for $350, most any degree of thermal capability - especially with the overlay of the visible-light image - is likely to be a great thing imo. I'm not going to spend the 7-15K for high-end thermal, but this can likely provide some level of functionality, even if comparatively poor-quality functionality. I see it kind of like having low-end nightvision vs. having no nightvision, or having a derringer vs. being unarmed. Not ideal, but at least step in the right direction.

Pretty cool. Could be worth picking up a used iPhone 5 just for this.
