    Would be so nice to have accurate temps.
    Also great for frozen hydronic loops in floors, etc.

    There are two cameras on the Flir that blends the ir and visible images together. As far as I can tell the Flir One Pro only upgrades the visible camera (to 1440x1080) and the ir camera is the same as the previous "One" model.

    160x120 thermal camera on the Flir One Pro and the previous 2nd Gen "One"

    Looks like new base model "One" that is 50 bucks cheaper than the 2nd Gen "One" got the 80x60 thermal sensor that came in the original camera which was a full over case for the iPhone 5

    In comparison the SEEK Pro has a 360x240 thermal
    camera.

    Is that right?
    Didn't get a chance to read that through yet and I don't know much about thermal imaging but the camera in the article shows a 160x120 thermal camera which would equal those 19,200 spots they talk about.

    So the 2nd Gen Flir One (160x120) and the new Flir One Pro (160x120) would be reading just as many spots as the one in the article.
    In the apps of the tiny cameras they also show where you can read the temp of all points on the image.
