Our review sample came in a little while box. Upon opening the box, we find fitted foam that protects the camera and its case. The packaging is very high quality and should ensure the safe arrival of your Seek camera.

I didn't expect a custom case to also be provided; it's a very nice touch.

As you can see the case has a custom molded rubber lining that should protect the camera from drops. I also think the case is water resistant, as a tight seal is produced when the case is closed.

The camera is quite small, and installation consists of plugging it into your smartphone. The protector for the lens is important, as you don't want the oils from your skin to make contact with the surface, as it can eat away at the anti-reflective coating. The camera's body is actually made of magnesium.

 

 

Installation

It's literally just plug-and-play. You should first download the Seek Thermal app from the Google Play store, and it will detect the camera.

I made a tripod mount for my phone using my 3D printer.

As you can see, it works pretty well imaging a CO2 duster can that was just used.
