    Damn it’s rough in Yurop

    Seems like the low pixel ones are starting to get to the point where a serious DIYer could buy one if they thought they would use it on more than one job a year.

    Borescopes are like $25 now, so I have hope for the thermal cams.

        The FlirOne certainly is.
        >work in APT maintenance
        >Company buys these for the dozens of properties they have across the US
        >Neither I, nor any of my co-workers can get it to function properly with our phones
        >The FlirOne app is required to use the camera
        >For android devices, you must have android 12 or newer for the app to even show up on the google play store
        >One guy with an android 10 device gets it work a single time in the office by using an old APK he found online
        >He can't get it to work when he's documenting an actual water leak
        >company is b***hing that people aren't using the thermal cameras
        >I'm the only one including thermal pictures in incident reports since I have my own Klein camera

        Pretty sure whoever was in charge of purchasing the FlirOnes did an Amazon search and chose the first one that came up because they're cheap

          It's sad that most decisions on organizational level are made by people who are clueless on the subject. And instead of admitting and asking they pretend to know because they don't want to seem incompetent and risk losing their job.

    ulefone makes phones with pretty decent ir cameras.
    this was taken with an armor 9. i've had it a couple years now, so i'm sure whatever they have now is better.

      >vevor
      the sticker they put on 90% of all exported items nowadays?
      that is not a brand, its a synonym for "Made in prc"

        Vevor is clearly a brand.

          In the same way that XQGCWC is a brand, they just need some letters to put next to the name to sell it on amazon.

    It is illegal because of the Arms Export Control Act of 1976 just like GPS chips have baked in altitude and speed limits

      if it's indigenous chink production ITAR means nothing, it only applies to US-made stuff.

      I think gps chips are EAR, but you have the right idea.
      EAR = mixed use, like a microwave that could go on a nuclear submarine
      ITAR = mostly military use, like a rifle scope
      Sanctions = no export at all, neither civilian nor military use

    My favorite Canadian, Matthius Wandel played with pic related on YouTube. It's pretty good for $300. I thought about gutting one and turning it into a rifle cope scope for a tenth the price.

      Thermal imagers have trouble seeing through glass, so your scope might be opaque to it. Also, consider the effect of the recoil on your sensors.

      Forgot to specify, this is for exports from the USA to other countries. ITAR doesn't cover imports.
