There is a bit of debate in the comments section of our Dewalt 12V thermal imaging camera preview post. Is the DCT416S1 resolution 15 x 15 pixels, or is the IR sensor actually larger?
From the above image, which is straight out of the Dewalt IR camera and enlarged but unenhanced, you can see that the resolution is definitely 15 x 15 px.
I have been passing the IR thermal camera around for testing, and thus far everyone likes it. For a $900 instrument, the image it produces is actually quite decent. Compared to more expensive thermal imagers double or almost triple the price, the limited resolving power does become more apparent.
The photo of the thermal camera’s LCD screen is not perfectly in focus, in order to blur the screen’s pixels together slightly. Otherwise the pixelation of the screen shows through and makes it look a lot less lifelike.
