The FLIR C2 Compact Thermal Imaging System is a truly pocket-sized imaging camera that can be easily carried in almost any pocket or bag and with its midlevel price makes it a good fit for contractors always on the move or home owners with very limited space. Having this on had will help you detect possible plumbing issues, defects within structures, and areas leaking/wasting energy. The large 3inch screen is vibrant and allows you to easily see potential areas of interest. This system also has an LED spot light to draw attention to certain areas of interest.

For frequent users the WiFi enabled version (FLIR C3) may be the best buy as it has all the features with the addition of WiFi for ease of image transmission.
