Thermal Camera For Boating
Is anyone using night vision or thermal imaging on their boat? I've been looking at a few handheld units from FLIR. They're not cheap so I want to make sure I'm getting the best camera for my dollar. I'm set on a FLIR, im just looking for any first hand experience in utilizing thermal imaging for marine use. Thermal imaging has its advantages at night for marine use, especially for collision avoidance or search and rescue. On top of that, it is much easier to see obstacles like docks and buoys. I'm wondering how well thermal imaging works at a distance and how durable they are. Also, do marine thermal imaging cameras tell you the distance to the objects you are viewing? Thanks in advance Dock Line!
