It is hard to believe that a Level II would even advertise using a C2, let alone the pricing...

While using my Flir E8 yesterday I had the opportunity to discuss differences in IR cameras with my client, explaining the shortcomings of the lower resolution and "add-on" devices.

It will be up to us as inspectors to inform the public about the differences in equipment and training, and set ourselves apart from the "camera-wavers". Unfortunately, the public is credulous and mis-informed when it comes to IR, and there are many inspectors who will take advantage of that.

I am a Level 1 and use an E8. Most people, maybe all people I see for residential ask if I do free thermal, I don't. What's sad is they come back with so and so does free thermal and its always some guy with a cheap camera. Internachi in the past promoted an easy to pass IR course. I appreciate the effort to educate inspectors but what good is making everyone an IR certified inspector when its at best a point and shoot and look at this blue area?
