Seek Thermal LWIR Android Thermal Imaging Camera Review

The software is pretty intuitive; here it is imaging a lamp. You can take snapshots or even videos, and operating modes and settings are widely available. If you pinch your fingers together on the screen, you can even zoom in and out, just like in other applications.




There are four options for thermal modes. The first option is no temperature reading, and because there is no temperature scale on the side, this option isn't very useful for things other than finding hot or cold spots.


The next option is the typical centered spot, which takes an average of the temperature readings around the center spot. I like high/low, as the camera will detect the highest and lowest temperature readings on the screen. Threshold is useful if you need more accuracy, and it provides real-time adjustments in the thermal modes menu for highlighting only what you want at different thresholds.




There are a total of nine color palettes available for imaging. My favorites are Iron and Tyrian.




Seek provides a dual mode which allows you to use your smartphone's camera to display part of the image on screen. The issue is that your smartphone's camera isn't in the same position as the thermal camera sensor, and thus it can be hard to produce comprehensible images.




There are a decent amount of settings available. You can change everything from the image aspect ratio to the thermal reading units.




By default, the Seek logo is in the lower right-hand corner of every image, however, this can be turned off. You can also turn on date, time, and location stamps.
