Default IR Camera

Decided to buy one and provide some shots in my reviews. Bought an E4 which originally has only 80*60 thermal resolution but thanks to the fine folks at EEVblog I was able to hack it to 320*240, matching the capabilities of the much more expensive E8 model.

So it was just a firmware artificial limit?

How will you handle the fact that you need to record the PSU as an open-frame? Fan(s) blowing from the side(s)? Quickly lifting the lid up and shooting images/video after an hour of running the PSU as intended (with the original fan attached)? Some other method?

Oh, and... How much did you spend?

Haven't give it any thoughts yet but once I find some time I will find the best way to exploit this new tool.

Greetings. IMHO IR pics of PSUs are a great idea.

In case this helps, some cheap and easy-to-get plastics like plexiglass and polyethylene are IR-transparent:

There is a really nice article by Igor Wallosek at Tom's Hardware about how to use infrared correctly. It's only available in German at the moment, but I'm sure there's going to be an English version.

German version: http://www.tomshardware.de/infrarot-...te-241701.html

They are probably already working on the translation.
