    Have bought the unit ..testing in dark with hot glasses of water a few degrees temp apart and distinctly picks up shapes of glasses. Takes practice to get the best but works great.

    Would love a "photo sphere" , or panoramic option to make stitched together images that are larger than the sensor. Also is it possible to save the pictures in jpg format with the radiometric information attached? FLIR quick report software just doesn't like the png files... Just thought it would be nice to be able to review your Pics on a computer later. Other than that, this is awesome!

    Finally got my IR Blue assembled, and the app works well with it. I definitely need some insulation in places. I recommend reading the quick-start document on

    But when changing the settings, such as emissivity/camera scaling/etc the software will stop receiving thermal data and will require both a restart of the ir-blue and the software to get it going again.
