Default Upgrade for Flir E-6

Does anyone know someone who can make the 320 x 240 IR imager in my Flir E-6 work as it should with 320 x 240 images?

Default Re: Upgrade for Flir E-6

The E6 is limited to 160x120 by the Firmware. In order to use the camera as an E8, the firmware must be hacked. Regardless of what anyone says, ALL versions of the firmware are hackable. It is just a matter of finding someone to do that. I bought the E4 already fully hacked through Ebay. Works great. Yeah, no warranty but I could have bought 3 of the hacked versions for the price of an E8. If you are looking for someone to hack it for you, I suggest you contact some of the sellers on Ebay.

I did mine. Pretty easy actually. I found a forum with hundreds of posts regarding it and spent a few days researching. I will try and link to it tomorrow.

But you find a company that uses software to lock down hardware so they can sell it at different price points ethical?

I purchased hardware and am going to use it to its full potential. I actually had a camera that the factory unlocked themselves. It had a menu at bootup that allowed me to select what model of camera it should act as.

Then you don't understand what HACK means.
And probably not smart enough to do it anyway.
It is my camera and I can do whatever I please with it.
We are talking about upgrading the software anyway.

It is no more different than changing the operating system on your computer.
Same thing.

No, it's not.
That's like going to McDonalds, ordering a regular cheeseburger, and taking a Quarter Pounder instead!
Flir originally charged for a E-6... you 'stole' the upgrade to an E-8.

That's not true.
You and Charles are just to dimwitted to understand.
It is just changing the software.
Let's put it this way.
For example ...
I own two Ford trucks. One has a better motor.
I take that better motor and put it in the other truck...
Have I screwed Ford? No!
They are both my trucks and I can do as I please with them.

Default Re: Upgrade for Flir E-6

Then why isn't it called an "Upgrade" instead of a "Hack"?

You are right though; larceny must show possession. If you didn't steal the upgrade from Flir, they never had possession. You just loose all support and service on the camera through Flir.

Some of us clamped on digital cameras and lasers ot the old BCams. Mfg. also added them later. Who stole from who?
