Best Camera for Residential home inspections Pat_R 4/12/2007
I need a camera for residential home inspections. I had come to the conclusion that the Flir B2 Thermacam would serve my needs. However, on reflection, it would be good to get some opinions from those of you more experienced as to whether this will be sufficient to do the job. Furthermore, does it offer value for what you get for your $$?

Its all about what the application is. I shopped around for a bit before I bought a camera. I was orignally going with the EX320 or the E45 and was even considering the mikon 7800. I had the demo and decided that flir was my camera. The next step was to fit it to my application. I needed a camera that went with the building application. I really had no need for a high temperature camera so i narrowed it down just a bit. The next step was to get as many features as possible but again looking for building applications. The E45 and the BX320 was right for my application. (The BX320 is the exact camera that the EX320 is but with just one temperature setting)I felt I needed the dew point alarm because it would be benificial for the energy and moisture audits that i planned to use it for. I also liked the area max. and min. temperature and decided to make sure my camera had all of these extra's. After futher consideration, I decided the 320 x 240 array was a good choice and would be something I could depend on. I did buy the BX320 and it does just what i need it to do. I am glad I spent the extra money for the higher end camera. The camera is easy to use and the high quality images goes hand in hand with the quality of work I strive for.>>>> Look around before you buy, ask alot of questions, define the application BEFORE you buy and most of all, get the camera that fits what you need it for. Make sure you understand what the extra's will do and not do for you and when i doubt ASK MORE QUESTIONS.
