I almost hopped on the FLIR ONE Pro, but the sale is only on the Micro-USB (with Free USB-C adapter) version. I'd rather get the USB-C native model to make use of the One-Fit connector adjustment on my modern phones. With the USB-C model still costing $400, it's not much more (relatively) to get the C5 camera and not be dependent on a phone App.

But for someone who still uses Micro-USB, a $100 discount on the Pro model isn't a bad deal from what I've seen in the past.

I know it's a stretch, but does anyone have experience with the E50 at the bottom of the page?
It has a 60hz refresh rate which is what I'm interested in. The 9hz limit on cheaper devices combined with the low resolution make the cheaper ones less than ideal.
I want to be able to use this for electrical devices and HVAC.
Thanks for any help.

Anyone know if a thermal camera like this would be helpful in tracking down a patio roof leak?

60hz for a microbolometer is fictitious, anyway. Response times for these sorts of sensors is closer to ~24hz, and anything going higher is sampling faster than the hardware can even react. I work with top end microbolometers for R&D work, and they suck for measuring fast stuff. You have to go to photon-counter style sensors (which have to be cryo-cooled), but then you get to go up to khz frame rates, which are fantastically fun.

For HVAC stuff 9 hz is, honestly, perfectly fine. Also, unless you're looking at really fast transients with electrical you should be fine. Keep in mind, 9 hz is still only ~110 ms per frame. If you're just looking for hot spots, you'll be fine.

All this said, FLIR software has always been pretty lousy. I had one of these ONE units a few generations back and the software constantly crashed. Usually couldn't get more than 5 minutes out of it before issues started cropping up.

Finally, for those of us with really poor insulation, these work great as very expensive stud finders.

Thanks for the reply.
We currently use a Fluke Ti32 (60Hz model) at the shop, which is what I'm trying to compare this one to.
The sensor on the E50 is a little smaller but is has features that I'm looking for (video recording and voice annotation), and the price is much lower than a more "up to date" equivalent.
I also like the idea of being able to stream to a remote device for others to monitor instead of standing on top of me.
I hope the software is better on the app designed for this. Most of the 1 star reviews are from people using the wrong app for the FLIR ONE and complaining that it crashes.

I read this because I've never heard of the cooled versions. They sound cool, but are more specialized than I need. I'm more in the market for smooth video while narrating down an assembly line/ducting, inspections, and slower moving objects in a factory (depending on the job). 9Hz just doesn't cut it when walking.

And yes, they are excellent stud finders. Smilie

Haha, yeah, the high speed ones are amazing. They start around $60k nowadays, I believe, and have a lot more nuances than the less expensive microbolometers to get good data.

One of the cool features of the FLIR cameras vs some competitors is the MSX that takes input from both a visible image and IR and does some edge detection stuff to help outline objects in your IR image. It makes it look like you have a lot more resolution than you actually do. Really nice for stuff like electronics boards or fuse boxes, a little less so for busy scenes with people (it looks kinda creepy then).

If you're looking to just take pretty pictures with some rough ideas about temperatures, the FLIR One is a great choice. If you're trying to do actual process monitoring...it's worth ponying up for a system that'll run their PC software.

Depending on your climate... I'd most likely say yes. I use one of the first gen models to look for active roof leaks or more often basement issues as an appraiser. With the phase change of water evaporating, a wet area should almost always show cooler than the area surrounding it.

Has anyone's order shipped?
A label was created for my order on the 25th, but UPS still doesn't have it in their possession.

Thank you might have to give this a try. Been dogged by the patio roof leak for a while now.
