Just what we needed! Now for about $350, everyone in your neighborhood who has an iPhone 5 can get this camera attachment for their phone.

I am sure no one will spy on their neighbors, scout homes and rob them when they are empty.

Of course, at $350 I would expect most law enforcement officers will now be carrying a thermal camera, and of course, they wouldn't abuse that tool right?

Re: Apple and FLIR = iPhone 5 Thermal Cameras - Coming in August
For $350, I don't see it having much range. It might be enough to check for people before you break in to a house, but I doubt you will see very far into the woods. A peeping Tom could use it to watch the neighbors in bed.
There are millions are legitimate uses, but that doesn't change the problems with the tech.

Remember what Janet Napolitano said

If you see something say something
 Quoting: Astral Goat


The outgoing Homeland Security Secretary has a warning for her successor: A massive and “serious” cyber attack on the U.S. homeland is coming, and a natural disaster — the likes of which the nation has never seen — is also likely on its way.

So prepare, and bring “a large bottle of Advil,” Janet Napolitano told her yet-to-be-named replacement in a farewell address Tuesday morning.

Re: Apple and FLIR = iPhone 5 Thermal Cameras - Coming in August
I'd like to experiment with it and cannabis plants. Just so I could see what the FLIR cams on the choppers see. They say, and I have no idea because of how much bullshit there is in the cannabis culture, that cannabis plants outside resemble pine trees so it is best to hide them right around pine trees outdoors.

I'd like to test that out and look into it if I could. I don't own any Apple products though...just a shitty display-less iPod shuffle I bought at a yard sale for $5. I worked customer support for the iPod department years ago and I know how cheap, shitty, and unreliable Apple products are and I avoid them like the plague!

If you ever want to block FLIR use 4x8 sheets of acrylic panels, 1/8 - 1/4 inch thick. Available at your local hardware store.

I was reading about this a while back. But that was before they announced the price...

Its an interesting lil piece of technology and im kinda excited about it... its on my ever growing wish list lol
 Quoting: Dr. Acula


I don't have an iPhone, but am for the first time, considering getting one, just for this piece of tech.

(I'll finally know what is creeping out in my woods at night!)


Edit: Thanks for the pin! I hope people will consider both the "good" and "bad" uses this technology is capable of.
 Quoting: Rabid Wolf


it's all about range though. how far can it effectively see heat. If it's 5 feet away, big woop.

Re: Apple and FLIR = iPhone 5 Thermal Cameras - Coming in August
i hate to burst your bubble but if you think they're gonna let you have military grade flir system, you are suckers.

It will be intentionally severely limited, but they just know they will rake in big bucks by selling you a cheapo, shitty version of it.


get this. The resolution of the flir one is 80x60 pixels.

lol. that is even more suck ass than I ever imagined.

even some shitty little pen camera you can buy for 5 dollars is 640x480 pixels or something.

Re: Apple and FLIR = iPhone 5 Thermal Cameras - Coming in August
they are advertising this as 'military grade infrared'

and charging $350 dollar.s

For a camera that take 80*60 pixel images.

This may be the greatest rip off ever.


I've never even seen a camera that takes 80*60 pixel images. Even the disposable camera you get free with a pack of gum takes 320*240 pixels.

military grade FLIR is classified technology . If they wouldn't sell it to Al Queda, they wouldn't sell it to the general public.

this is a 10,000 flir camera and even it's not 'military grade'. The military FLIR you see videos of isn't even available and if it was they would charge you 50,000 dollars for it.
