Don’t stay in the dark about thermal imaging
Okay, we’ve gone on a long spiel about how great a thermal camera can be for people, but what even is thermal imaging? Let’s break it down for you.
Thermal imaging utilises infrared radiation and thermal energy to create detailed pictures of objects, even in low lighting. Everything emits some sort of heat, from the random objects in your room to your pet and even yourself. Thermal cameras are simply picking up other objects’ heat signatures to create an image of it.
In the past, these heat signatures were presented as grayscale – white represented something hot and black represented something cold with various shades of grey in between. But nowadays these images utilise colours like red, orange, yellow, blue, and purple. Pretty neat, huh?
You have probably seen this technology being used before in lots of different settings. Think about a war or action movie, often nighttime scenes will feature thermal imaging so you can see the actions occurring.
Okay, so we understand what thermal imaging is, so let’s get into the details about the Flir One specifications.
Image resolution of the Flir One Pro
When it comes to cameras, we understand that some of the most important information to learn is the image resolution. How many pixels, what is the quality like and how do the photos look are all important questions – so let’s get started.
The Flir One has a thermal image resolution of 19,200 pixels and a temperature measurement range of -20o C to 400o C. The thermal sensitivity required to detect temperature differences is 70 mK which equates to 0.07o C. The Flir One specifications are truly revolutionary.
So, that’s all about the thermal imagery but what about the camera quality? The camera has a visual resolution (MSX and VividIR) of 1440 x 1080 pixels and a field of view of 55o x 43o, which basically means that it’s very high-quality. It shoots still images in JPEG and videos in MPEG-4, which are the formats required for pretty much every application, so you no longer need to go through the hassle of transferring them over.
Overall, the Flir One infrared camera for iPhone and Android is one of the best thermal cameras out there. The Flir One has awesome specifications that mean it’s useful for almost every application, but what are they?
