FLIR DM284 Thermal Imaging Multimeter Review:
The Flir DMC-4 thermal imaging camera was designed with one purpose in mind – to provide superior thermal imagery over other cameras on the market today. The DMC-4 is capable of capturing images at resolutions up to 10 megapixels (MP) and it’s able to do so without any significant loss in resolution compared to competing products. The DMC-4 uses a thermal imager that works using infrared light to capture high quality images. These images are then processed to produce detailed 3D models of objects or areas within an environment.
