Product Description

Product Description

You can traverse rough terrain to scope out the “perfect spot” at dusk, before dawn and even when it’s pitch black outside. You can discover nocturnal animals, find wandering members of your party, locate lost livestock or spot downed game.

In addition, during day time wildlife spotters can locate animals standing in tall grass or hiding partly behind bushes or trees.

Intensity or brightness can be adjusted but relative gain or sensitivity cannot.

First, let me begin by telling you I am a police officer and I use this FLIR while on patrol. I purchased this myself since I primarily work night shift. At first I was very impressed with the capabilities of this camera. I was able to locate deer roaming near the roads out to a distance of about 500 yards. I could detect people out to maybe 200 yards without a problem. Works really good when I need to see down a dark ally between homes. Warm cars are no problem to spot and people hiding in the bushes are easy to locate. Stand in one spot for a few minutes and it can detect the footprints on the ground even if you were wearing boots. I passed college Physics so I am little embarrassed to admit that I expected this to be able to see through my cars windshield, it can't of course.

The usefulness drops rapidly as the humidity increases. I find myself having to adjust the sensitivity of the unit by switching to the mode that enhances heat by painting it red. This is the only setting that allows any kind of sensitivity adjustment so you better like the red color enhancement if you buy this unit. Also, the description says it has a zoom feature. It does NOT have a zoom. This model has a image freeze button instead of zoom.

I have been using the unit every night for about 6 weeks now and I have noticed a steady degrading of the heat sensitivity. At first the images were very contrasty with a nice separation between the hot and cold objects. Lately the image has been very muddy and its getting harder and harder to see differences between hot and cold objects. Washed out would be a good description of the image quality lately. I thought that humidity was causing the problem but it persists even on cold dry nights.

I bought the FLIR Scout PS-24 for spotting animals while hiking and hunting. The unit is compact with a very solid weight. It's easy to use and charging takes roughly 4 hours. Since the unit was 2,000 US dollars I wanted to make sure as soon as I got it that it would be worth that money. There are many features and functions of the product. I won't go into a review about that, you can find them on the Internet or at the FLIR website. I will cover the question I really wanted to know before buying it. How good is it at spotting animals? So I did a number of separate tests.

The idea was for three days scan my backyard from my the bedroom balcony, which is 35 feet above the target area. The distance to the tree line is 45 yards. Then it's heavily wooded oak and cedar for hundreds of yards afterward. I live in Austin, Texas so the temperature the first night was 65, next night 50 and the last night 50.

I used a number of tools to see what the results would be:

A Burnham Brothers SL-18 scope mounted light with an amber filter
A Primos "350 yard" spot light with normal and red filter
A Bushnell Gen I night vision binoculars 2.5 x 42mm
A Flir PS-24 Thermal Imager

I would scan the backyard at 10pm at night for 10 seconds with each tool and see what I could spot.

The spotting lights the first night picked up nothing.
The night vision picked up nothing the first night.
The FLIR PS-24 picked up a brush rabbit. I was impressed. I didn't expect the results.

The second night it was medium fog with heavy rain that day. The night vision could see clearly. The FLIR PS-24 couldn't see more then 20 yards. Spot lights had some minor to moderate reflection off the fog and could get about 40 yards visibility clearly.

I purchased this primarily for night hunting to accompany the GenIII night vision monocular and infrared laser. I put the real money into the NVG and decided to go "budget" on this one after reading a lot of reviews.

This device isn't really what I'd call a "vision device" in the way the NVG is; the NV is intended to be strapped to a helmet and used in place of your own vision. The slow Hz rate and lower resolution of this FLIR unit make it fall shy of useable for that purpose, but that's not what I want it for anyway. I use the FLIR to spot hot things and then use NV to really see them.

That said, the PS24 provides an entirely useable image for most purposes. You can't tell apart a dog from a beaver at 100 yards, but when I sit in my 9th floor apt and look at the city I can see people wandering around pretty clearly.

My favorite application of the FLIR is quasi-forensics. You can tell which cars were recently run and where cars were parked in a parking lot, because there are dark rectangles in those spots. If you take some shirts out of the laundry, fold them, and put them on the shelf, the FLIR makes them glow like they were on fire even an hour later. If you crumple up a cardboard box and put it with a bunch of other trash, you can see that someone was handling that. If someone was looking at a book and replaces it, you can see which one it was. You can tell which shoes were worn recently. Water left over from a wiped counterop looks like black paint.

You can see where heat is leaking into or out of a room. The LED display on your stove will glow brightly. The sink will be white hot after washing dishes. Wet handprints on a shirt will first glow and then promptly turn black as the water evaporates.
