How does it work, technically? DHL collects it? Did they charge anything above GST?

The camera was sent with TNT (FedEx) and they sent me an email asking for payment. GST was around $120, quarantine and inspection was around $40 and import declaration was $50.

I haven't tried ThermViewer but the default app can capture some pretty decent images apart from the logo:

Thanks to everyone I'm now the proud new owner of a HT-301.

Nice, hopefully it's matching or exceeding your expectations. After more than 6 months with a 301, I can say that the novelty is still quite strong!

The transparency of optically opaque plastics (bin bags, HDPE bottles etc) should keep you busy for a good couple hours

Thank you guys for the info again.

Now need to decide whether to order from AliExpress and wait for a month but probably pay only GST and have some buyer protection; or get into mercy of TNT/DHL. Will update this thread with eventual outcome.

Thanks everyone for the very informative thread!!!

Quick questions:

1. Does the HTi 301 draw a lot of power from the phone? I'm pretty new when it comes to thermal cameras, was very surprised that Seek drains my phone really fast.

2. Does Seek Thermal Pro have a 9Hz version and also a 15Hz? I looked in up on Amazon seems only showing the 9Hz in item description.

1. 80mA during normal operation, 200mA during calibration shutter operating.

2. Yes, but you need to buy from TEquipment. Hint: I returned it because it would be illegal for me to bring it to China with me when I packed up from US, and also its image quality is no where close to HT301. For whatever reasons, all Seek sensors suck, including Compact XR, Compact Pro and Shot Pro, which I all owned before returning or sold.

Did you ever have or try a 'Reveal' though ?
The onces I have seen are pretty decent stand alone cameras.

I have a fairly new phone with pretty good battery performance and it seems to me like it doesn't use much more power than watching YouTube videos. I have used it for several hours at a time without draining the battery, YMMV.
