    Anyone use Infrared thermography in their line of work?

    I am taking a class this week to become a certified level one thermographer.

    The camera alone was 25K.:eek1:

    This is one of my many shots from today...

    The camera reads the heat signature of subjects in the image and captures them as shown. It is way cool......this one was shot during the day but the image is shown in full IR so the sky appears dark...It just means that the backround is at a much lower temp than the pole and transformers...

    I used it all the time..
    in our heliocoppers
    handheld units for search and rescue... awesome for locating suspects or victims... they were pretty big at the time.. about like an old vhs camera... now they are pocketsize...
    by the time the next gen rolls around theyll be pencil sized

    How long till you tape yourself having sex? Some of the guys in my club have done it (not with each other...wifes, girlfriends, etc.) and find it rather entertaining. Just make sure you erase the vid before returning the camera to work...:haha:
