Yes, I'd not considered buying a TIC before, but 320x240 resolution at this price justifies it (as either tool or toy!)

Yes the UVC Mode seems to have a radiometric mode, but not for FLIR Tools.

I tried the FLIR E4 as UVC Webcam on som Android devices, some of them works, but its more a thing of the App and the Kernel, not the Android device itself (if it has USB Host as well).

i have had success with get the E4 Screen over USB->Rasperry pi->Monitor.
Sadly it don't works with the Octoprint Webserver  :-\

Hi,
I bought an E4 a few days ago with firmware 2.11.
I want to upgrade it (Hack it) to E4+ but I cannot set the RNDIS mode.
I tried many times to change the default UVC and MSD but it does not change. 
Is it disabled by Flir?

Is there any other way to connect to the camera?

Regards
Platonas

Update:    I figured out the problem with RNDIS.  It is not available via the camera's menu.  I had to run the file "FlirIstallNet.exe" and load the appropriate "fif" file.
Now my camera E4 is an E4+.

Thank you 2lps for providing the solution to the 2.11 version.  A big Thanks for the people that originally found the hack that makes us happier :)

Did anyone notice the E4 was now replaced with E4 Wifi?

https://www.tequipment.net/FLIR/E4-WiFi/

Wonder if it can still be upgraded just fine or if they put lepton cores in these

no Lepton sensor, it's the same sensor and the same awful fragile USB connector with corresponding lid |O
