FLIR i3: Quality Thermal Imaging Under $1,200
The FLIR i3 is the industry’s first ever, sub-$1,200 point-and-shoot infrared camera, making the big picture of thermal imaging a realistic and affordable upgrade from single-spot infrared thermometers or “temperature guns” with numerical readouts. The fully-automatic FLIR i3 is easy to use out of the box and offers 60 x 60 pixel resolution suitable for everyday, general diagnostic work. Many FLIR hallmarks are included such as 2% thermal accuracy and fully radiometric JPEGs that integrate temperature data into a familiar, universally accepted image format.  The new FLIR i3 is priced low enough for first-time users or for companies across industries that are ready to equip every technician or facility with an infrared camera.
