Product Overview

FLIR E8 Thermal Imaging Camera with MSX enhancement. Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX) for easier interpretation of an image - adds visible spectrum definition to IR images by detecting the edges of objects and including that detail in the thermal image. Text becomes clearly visible so that you can read a label or identifier within the IR image.

Customer Reviews

E8 Thermal Imaging Camera is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Camera I'm really enjoying using the E8 camera very user friendly. There are two things I would like to suggest, 1st I like being able to lock in the temp scale but I would also like to be able to manually adjust the scale ( high/low span) on the camera and 2nd some kind of clip would be nice. When I am inspecting I often have the camera and a clip board it a Clip would be nice so I wouldn't need to put the camera down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera but software is hot garbage I purchased the camera and installed the original software version and it worked ok. Recent software updates are a huge step backwards. I had to remove the old version that had been "updated" because it crashed constantly on launch. Uninstalling took over 30 minutes! The new software itself is took forever to install >10 minutes. The first launch of the latest version locked up and had to be forcibly shutdown. I should not have to login to anything to be able to use the software. I'm not sure if ITAR has demanded usage statistics or something stupid but I honestly don't trust that my data is safe. I'm not sure if I will end up on some kind of list because I use my device on multiple computers or if my images are uploaded somewhere nebulous. I couldn't find a license agreement so I have no indication on what exactly the software will do and how much information will be shared with the US government. If you value privacy, this is an issue, much like anything relating to storing information on US soil. The UI looks like it is a early 2000s Winamp skin with no logical consistency and no conformance to modern standards. The old version (I have yet to try working with the new version as I debate the login issue) seemed like every action launched an completely separate program that you had to back out of, saving as you go, to do anything. It is horribly single tasked while appearing to be a multitasking environment. The new version seems to have removed features in lieu of FLIR Tools+, a 300 dollar "tax" on an already expensive (I paid 4k for my camera) product if you want to use some kind of reporting features (Word?) and tools that should be included already and were in previous versions (at least PDF reports were). The camera itself is alright, with a few settings in awkward places. The emissivity setting is something that can change moderately often and yet it is buried 4 layers deep. I've had the camera crash with an APPCORE.EXE has stopped responding multiple times requiring a hard power down or battery removal. This may be a firmware issue but I tried updating it and FLIR Tools crashed before it was able to start updating, thankfully. I understand that this tool is designed to be used by anyone, but I find that the firmware and software is limited to a much greater extent than is necessary, and that this is likely due to having a large, fractured product lineup and the need to sell higher end models. Would I recommend this product or company? Not anymore after trying to deal with the latest software.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beneficial; it uncovers issues you may not have known prior to using it. It is a serious investment. A colleague convinced our department to purchase a unit. At first, we were just poking around with it but while doing so we uncovered issues that we were unaware. It does require some training or experimenting as incorrect user settings can flaw your results. The value of emissivity and the use of emissivity values create a focal point for additional investigation that can make the difference between success and failure. The first email from the company representative indicated the possibility of free online training- I think this is a valuable resource and necessary for all who purchase and use this product. I will definitely take advantage of their offer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The camera works good but the sofware needs polish We have to take images of our electrical panels. Some of these are not located in convenient spots. This means that we have to take several photos of one panel and try to stitch them together. This works about 50% of the time. We then are usually force to take the same pictures over again to try to match it up in the software. Tried contacting tech support and they gave some tips. I'm still having issues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from FLIR E8 Well built camera. Lacks a SD card and having to plug camera into computer to retrieve photos is cumbersome. Software is buggy on my camera as it fails to consistently boot up and many times an error message pops up on start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FLIR I8 for home inspection use Have been using the camera now for about 2 years. It has become an invaluable tool in our home inspection business finding issues we could have never found with our bare eyes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ahead of the crowd My use of an E8 has been very helpful in finding otherwise hidden conditions. The high resolution and crisp focus has been a great combination with the most excellent MX system. The rating does reflect a couple shortcomings of minor concern. the lack of a removable memory card can be inconvenient for sharing photos among other computer devices. The camera constantly refuses to be recognized by the computer software on my apple computer, which is apparently a problem with the software as the camera is recognized by the Apple Photo software and easily allows for direct download of images into the Apple software. The "better" Flir software has an additional charge for use which is ridiculous for such an expensive device. Flir customer service suggested I send the camera back as a p;possible device problem, but that would leave me without its use for weeks, and cost significant shipping costs, which is not helpful since it works fine with the computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great instrument We were using an older competitor's product. My engineer was not happy with the results. After doing some research, I presented the E8 as an alternative. I am very impressed with the built in features, but post processing has become a breeze. Great product, and very good support.
