See for thermal imaging go to FLIR C5

Having been a user of the superseded C2 FLIR camera I was budding to wait and see what the C5 had to offer.

The C2 ticked the boxes but the picture quality wasn't quite there.

Not to fear, the C5 is twice as detailed and comes with a lot of extra features which you could only do during editing on the FLIR tools software. This not only allows for more details surveying while onsite but also saves time while editing and compiling reports.

Battery life has seemed to improve from the previous model but you always need to take into account if you're using the flash regularly that it may not last as long.

A good camera to have in your armoury onsite for quick analysis.
