Fluke FLK-VT04 Visual Infrared Thermometer Review

Fluke FLK-VT04 camera

The Fluke VT04 is a great entry to mid level infrared thermal imaging camera that is also small in size making easier to carry around than many other thermal cameras. The temperature range for this camera is 14F to 482F. You can also download the Smart View software for this which allows you to generate reports and images with temperature information; however, as this is a mid-range camera there is not a lot of detail that can be added to the images or reports generated. As with most things you get what you pay for although this is a solid camera that works well. Some people also complain about the resolution but again these users were typically used to using high end professional grade thermal imaging cameras which this one is not.
