4.0 out of 5 stars One of the handiest items I have ever purchased 2 Jan. 2016
By Tom Cat - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of the handiest items I have ever purchased. I can check my house insulation, door leaks see animals up to 70 yards in total darkness, see heat from my automobile after a road trip, see hot and cold water leaks, find shorted transistors, capacitors, resisters and so much more with this item. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because it is not listed correctly. This is not a Thermal Camera it is a Thermal Imager there is no built in camera. Also there is not a case included with the Imager, but if you purchase a Amazon Basis small GoPro case mark and cut out the inside foam to fit the imager you can have a good carrying case for the charger and Imager for less than $20.00.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome camera, awesome range, and awesome price! 15 April 2016
By Linda Steinkamp - Published on Amazon.com

Just got mine today and already amazed. People have said that the tg165 couldn't see well past 10 feet. And I have also been told that the range of the tg167 is 60 percent better. If that were true then the maximum range of this camera would be 16 feet. The real range is probably closer to 10-15 times that. I spotted a rabbit at 40 feet. I couldn't tell exactly what it was on the screen but I guessed right, a rabbit. It can see a human being from about 200 feet away and you can still tell it is a human being. Or Bigfoot or something like that. All of the features of this camera are great. The reduced angle view really isn't that bad. In fact, it is great. You can put your hand on the wall and then take it off and you can see the hand print. You can also see your reflection in the in the window when visibly you don't see a reflection at all. I could also spot a leak around our back door. My only complaint is that the screen freezes about once a minute for about 2 seconds. My only concern is that one time when the screen froze after I left the menu, the screen stayed frozen. I had to turn it off and then turn it back on again. After that, I haven't that problem with it again. Word to the wise; don't move very fast with this camera. Overall it is a great camera. I have wanted one for about 7 years now but could never afford one. I feel blessed to finally be able to own and use one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A simple, no-frills, but quite useful thermal imager for home use. 11 Feb. 2017
By Anonymous - Published on Amazon.com

I was looking for a thermal imager to locate drafts and other problems in my condo. Most seemed quite expensive, so I figured I'd give this one a shot. I assumed it just was a glorified spot thermometer, but it's not. While it only displays the temperature where the sensor is pointed, it is a real thermal imager. The resolution isn't spectacular, but it is precisely what I needed for casual use around my condo. I was able to spot air entry points (most were in expected places like window frames, but there were a few surprises). I also found a hot spot on one of my electrical panels (a web site had suggested trying this). The precise numbers it gives aren't the most accurate in the world (and it takes a few seconds for the numerical reading to converge when when first turned or moved to a new area), but the image is very revealing. While I'm sure it wouldn't impress a pro, this is an excellent tool for amateur work around the house. I can't speak to the battery life, as I haven't used it enough to exhaust a set yet. I will say that it's incredibly simple to use. The only thing I had to figure out was how to switch between F/C (it turns out there was a switch in the battery compartment). All in all, it is a very simple and well-designed tool that does what it purports to do, and I'm very pleased with my purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Works For Mole Hunting! 31 Mar. 2016
By VA Patriot - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I bought this for a few reasons, the usual find leaks and drafts, clogged drains and such but my primary use is seeking out those underground varmints digging tunnels throughout my year.

Best used in the evening or night when the ground is cooled or after a rain. Excellent to pinpoint their warm furry bodies within their final resting place.

Within the first hour, I had identified and eliminated over a dozen moles looking to make my summer miserable. Looking at the cost of this vs. the past year of repellents, useless sonic stakes and other methods, this has proven its worth...and more!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Infrared Thermometers That Punches Above It's Weight Class 23 May 2016
By Tan Kuan Khoon - Published on Amazon.com
Style: Without Thermocouple Verified Purchase
Bought this FLIR TG54 Spot Infrared Thermometer to replace my broken Fluke 62 Mini and was really surprised by how much more powerful in terms of performance the FLIR TG54 is when compared to the Fluke 62 Mini.

First off, the TG54 is wonderfully compact and sleek in design, with weight distribution right down the center of the device. No tipping forward or backward when holding and using the device. The included additional function of a forward facing LED light is a very convenient for engaging in thermal measurements in poorly lit area, a very nice design touch indeed.

The TG54 actually uses a anti-reflection coated IR lens while run-of-the-mill infrared thermometers of this price class will use plastic Fresnel lens. This give this small unit an absurdly high spot to distance ratio of 24:1 (1 inch circle when 2 feet away from target). This spot to distance ratio is only available in higher end models of other manufacturer costing multiples of the cost of the FLIR TG54. Hitting small measurement areas will never be difficult again. Do note that the spot will not reduce to any smaller than the actual front aperture of the TG54 of 0.75 inch as a rule of thumb (i.e. 0.75 inch spot when 18 inches away from target is the limit, any nearest will still be 0.75 inch spot)

The laser guide on the TG54 is actually calibrated and aligned to be parallel to the optical axis of the IR lens. This means that where the laser touches, you can estimate the optical center of measurement to be about 0.75 inch below the laser dot. Totally takes the guess work out of IR temperature measurements.

The TG54 also features adjustable emissivity settings, allowing measuring highly reflective items (i.e. stainless steel pipes, chrome plated metal items, polished drive shafts, etc.) a breeze. You may want to print out a small emissivity table and attached it to the lanyard point on the TG54 for a convenient guide to the emissivity setting of the material you are measuring.

One small gripe with the unit to date is that there is a significant pause before the unit comes alive when the measure trigger is pulled when the unit is on cold shutdown mode (i.e. screen dark). But when the screen is still on, measurement mode is triggered without delay and measurement update fast enough to allow for you to scan an area quickly to determine the highest temperature observed.

Lastly, the TG54 runs off 3 x AAA batteries which is easy to find and much more long lasting than 9V batteries that most other IR thermometers requires. Substituting the alkaline AAA to typical Ni-MH rechargeable batteries does not detrimentally affect performance.

Overall one of the best pieces of measurement hardware I have acquired to date, will not hesitate to purchase any product from FLIR!
