    Thoughts and opinions on the FLIR K2?

    Our rural east test department does not receive strong funding from the county. Additionally, we have not gone the way of an ESD as of yet. With that being said, funding has always been a struggle. Lets face it, the median family income is quite low out here, and most people just don't have the extra money to spare, even if it is a donation to their local VFD. We have been saving for quite some time with the hopes of purchasing a Thermal Imaging Camera for the department.

    With the introduction of the FLIR K2, not only would our department be able to make the purchase immediately, but we could purchase multiple along with truck chargers which would be great for both the department and the communities that we serve.

    In looking at the specs, however, the chief and I were a little hesitant with the 500 degree for 3 minute max on the unit. We understand that the refresh rate is not going to be the same as though $10K units that are out there, and we are comfortable with it, but the temp rating is different.

    My question is whether or not any of you have had the opportunity to really test this unit out in tough conditions for a significant time with good results. I've seen some positive feedback on FLIR's web page, but I wouldn't expect much negativity there either. Just looking for an honest opinion.

    Thanks in advance.

    FLIR is the world leader in the design, manufacture, and marketing of thermal imaging infrared cameras.
