i know this maybe is unacceptable to other pro's and offtopic, but i post it anyway. why dont go for thermal compact? it can be mounted on larger lcd (handphone) and half the price, if all you want is like what i want (analysing circuit) and recently helped me with my clogged plumbing and earlier with my burnt ELCB. 3.5" lcd may put strain to my deteriorating eye but if you think you'll need that nice fusion image, i think it worth it at $200+ additional cost. but i still dont like the 3.5" lcd, too small imho. HT-18 is smaller 3.2", without fusion image on compact i have to do manually with different camera (attached) not really nicely overlapped but i can work around it and should be good enough for rough guestimate for me. ymmv.

My only concern with the USB based ones is the longevity.  I had enough issues with the micro USB ports on my cell phones and imagine the strain of a dongle hanging off it would be even worse and shorten the life even more. I plan on going USB-C on my next phone as well which would make whichever one I purchase now obsolete.  I'm open to other options, just not crazy about the phone based dongles.  I'm curious how the Seek Shot compares to a Flir C2 as well.  Basically, trying to stay under $500 and get the most for my money in a dedicated unit.

Not to derail the thread any further, but I ended up blowing way over my budget (2x) and jumped to a Flir E4.  Plan to do the resolution hack and add a lens + stand for board work if needed.  Just couldn't find anything on the Seek Shot that made me really want it.  All the 3rd party work and hacks for the E4, plus ability to access raw data is what really pushed me to blow my budget.  Hope I made the right decision.  I would have loved something in the form factor of the seek shot, but the performance and firmware just doesn't seem to justify the price.  Plus I won't have to design my own lens attachment for close-up work now.

Anyone with the shotpro when using the thermal camera the image freezes around every x seconds and then resumes?  :-//

That's normal. That's the calibration shutter.

I have had the SeekPro now for a week and impressed with it's quality and features. I had a ATN OTS-HD 384 and I also own a HT-102 cheapy.  What I wish it would have had but then again maybe due to it's price point is why but things like:

*higher frame rate at least 15hz but 9hz is doable
*removable battery/memory
*a case and/or lens cover (thinking of making one on a thermal printer just to slide over the red corner area.
*digital zoom on touch screen
*lcd pushed sized to the actual edge of display glass
*larger frickin font

But no world is perfect but for something to take out and capture on a consumer level without the need for exporting reporting etc this hits the sweet spot and pleased with the purchase if anyone is on the fence.

If I would like to check the nozzle temperature of my 3D printer, I would have to know the possible deviation of the Shot Pro in the range of 200 ... 300°C.

Unfortunately I can not find any accuracy information about the Shot Pro like FLIR has for the C2/C3's; their accuracy is given as ±2°C (±3,6°F) or ±2% (whichever is greater) at a nominal temperature of 25°C (77°F).
