Many were happy with their Big Wheel before they got their Huffy.
Look at the 100's of threads in this section of the forum, education is more important than toys... umm... tools. You could buy a $30,000 IR camera, but if you don't know how to use it you may as well get a pair of X-ray glasses.

Anthony:

Two questions:

What do you want to do with a C2 thermal imager?

What is your budget?

If you're looking at compact thermal imagers, you might consider the Seek Reveal Pro. Way higher resolution for not much more $.

My budget tops out at $700 for this purchase. Primarily, I am looking to identify water penetration.

Nice picture of a glass of water. How is that supposed to help anyone looking to locate an unknown water source in an unknown location?

Anthony:

If you are looking to have a thermal imager that serves as an adjunctive tool to your home inspections, you may find the C2 to be adequate to your needs. Keep in mind that this imager is an entry level instrument that does not meet published standards due to its relatively low resolution.

The C2 is designed to provide imaging of sizeable targets at nominal distances. Examples would include, but not be limited to: walls, ceilings, doors, and windows of a home; wall and floor areas around sinks, toilets, and bathtubs/showers; radiators and HVAC vents; and electrical panels and devices.

Prior to purchasing any thermal imager I would offer two suggestions:

1) Physically try the imager under the same conditions you will likely encounter in the future.

2) Consider taking an infrared training course before making an equipment purchase. Doing so will expose you to other applications that you may not have considered as well as how to turn thermal imaging into a significant revenue stream. With a quality instrument and effective marketing, a qualified thermographer can gross in excess of $200,000 annually.

Normally priced at $995, Infrared Inspections for Home & Buiding Inspectors is available to InterNACHI members for only $295. Because it is a web-based course, you are able to take your training 24/7 from the convenience of your home or office without incurring travel expense or losing billable time.

You are welcome to contact me directly should you require additional information. My numbers are listed below.

It's more, better for finding wet footprints in front of the shower door so that a special, self-trained operator can identify them as a gasket leak in his report.
