Aw man, I NEED one of these!!!! Is there a cheaper version?

So useful especially with bees entering the chimney or from the side.

Oh yeah, have you tried the IR camera on chimneys and if it can find bees behind it?

Thanks

Jack

No Jack I haven't had the chance to try it on a chimney yet.

I'll post it up and send you pictures when I get a chimney call.

This is my work camera, I wouldn't have it otherwise.

The camera is an older model Fluke Flex Cam similar to their Ti55 that I picked up used for $3,500.

Thanks for the questions (2 posts to go to hit 30),

This is a picture inside of a garage wall from today on a poor colony barely surviving that had been sprayed heavily   :'(  :'(  :'(
Hope I can rescue it. I'm charging them double for being stupid.

Don, is the Fluke imager easy to use? Is it just point and view or you point and have to make some adjustments?

Also, you said you haven't tried it on chimneys with bees behind it. Have you tried it through stucco? Or bees in a tree?

I want one!

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

....i've seen some rather nice results from modified point and shoot cameras.  i have no idea if you can get similar results, but it is probably worth a try on a $100 camera before dropping $3500.

the version i've seen removed the ir filter, and replaced it with exposed film (ie, the scrap that is included when you have color negatives processed).

Yes, it is easy to use. just point, focus and shoot. It's got a digital viewing screen so all you have to do is look through it till find them. You don't even have to take a picture if you don't want too.

VERY IMPORTANT: It's all about contrasting temperatures, it works best when the outside air temperature is below 75 degrees.

It works fine through modern stucco laid over lathe, I haven't tried it on the old thick stucco.

I've got a couple of bee trees close, I'll try it out on this week and let you know.

Thanks for helping me get to 30 posts, I'll shut up now for the most part and go back to lurking.   :)

Love all the video's, keep them coming.

Don
