Do I have to use the FLIR Ignite cloud platform?
No - FLIR Ignite is a new and optional cloud-based image back-up service. It's free up to 1GB of storage, which is a lot of thermal images.
If you prefer, you can simply plug the FLIR C5 into your computer with the supplied USB cable. Then you can view and download the images using your file system, just like a digital camera. If you use a Mac you will need to download this app to use this method.

All good so far… but not much use
Works well as advertised. it is a bit slow when comparing to modern cameras or phones
Excellent camera, the PC SW is awfully clunky, but the camera is nice. It takes mixed images down to a few cm (where I need it work) and from a distance where other users might need it to be good
Needed a thermal camera as a PassiveHouse Designer. Reduction Revolution were out of stock with the Flir One Pro, and offered an upgrade to the C5 - very please I accepted it. Correspondence and delivery were prompt, product arrived as described, will purchase from them again.
Similar size to an iphone, yet rugged covering that gives me confidence when using it outdoors. I am a basic user at present but it has huge potential once I move out of 'auto' mode and learn to better adjust the manual settings. It provides a very quick snapshot of where I need to focus my attention with regard to draught proofing buildings.
