A High Resolution Thermal Camera, the Therm-App

•, By Rhett Allain

However, I have trouble saying "no" when someone asks if I want to look at their new infrared camera that attaches to a smartphone. I know, it's my weakness.

This week's camera is the Therm-App for Android phones. The other IR cameras I reviewed (FLIR One and Seek Thermal) were great. They both allowed you to look at things in a different light (literally). However, this Therm-App is a little bit different in two different ways. It has a higher resolution (384 x 288) as well as a 19 mm lens for viewing objects in the distance. But wait! It's also quite a bit more expensive. The base price is around $1600 dollars.

Before I get into more details about the Therm-App camera, let me just remind you of my summary of what infrared is and what you can use it for.
