During last year’s CES, we covered a company called Flir releasing thermal sensing cameras. Now this year, they’re back at it again with two new thermal-imaging devices, the Flir One, and the C3.
Starting off with the Flir One, which is a thermal camera attachment for iPhones and Android phones that are equipped with a USB-C connector. It comes with a new image processor and a higher resolution visual camera, which is also cheaper than the model before it as it starts at $199, instead of $250. There is also a height adjustable dongle included, so it can be used with cases.
Flir has made previous versions of the One before, and those customers have used the device in more heavy-duty settings, such as plumbing, contracting, and home improvement. So as a result, the company is also releasing a more ruggedized version of the One, dubbed the Flir Pro, and it’ll come with an even higher resolution thermal sensor. The Flir Pro will set you back $399.
Also announced is the Flir Duo and Duo R, which are two GoPro sized cameras that have pro-quality imaging internals. What separates the R apart from the regular Duo is the fact that it is capable of making lab-calibrated thermal measurements. Like with most GoPro cameras, the Duos can fit into tighter places, which is always something good to have the ability too. The Duo will cost $999 while the Duo R will cost $1,299.
Finally announced is the C3, which is a rugged, palm-sized camera that has a 3-inch LCD touchscreen. It also includes the calibrated thermal imaging processor to make extremely accurate heat measurements, just like what is found on the Duo R. The C3 will cost $699.
