Looking into a thermal imaging camera for search and rescue as well as wildfire applications. Which camera would be better for wildfire monitoring operations? The newer e10t has a better resolution which means it will have better/sharper thermal images, correct? the operating temps seem significantly different on the two sensors though with the cgoet having the higher range? Let me know what you think!

The CGOET was cool when it first came out, but is just ok for viewing a live feed, but the sensor is only 2mp so not good for much else. The E10T is twice the resolution, has an actual Flir sensor and is more than twice the cost. The CGOET does have a slightly wider FOV so there's that.

I would guess a lower resolution thermal will still work well for fire spotting. It just depends on your budget. I've seen used CGO-ET cams for around $1200. The E10T 320 runs about $5000.

The pixel count on the CGO-ET is 160x120 = 19,200.
The pixel count on the E10T 320 is 320x256 = 81,920.
So the resolution on the E10T is actually 4X higher.

And the E10Tv is 640x512 = Oh my God resolution and the same price tag. Resolution =327680, my price was $10,00. The SAR and some of the fire departments here in Israel are looking or own the E10t and a very pleased with the function of the thermal camera.

I thought the TV was almost twice the cost of the T?

What about the temp ranges? it seems like the E10T only goes to 100 F if I am not mistaken, this seems like it could be a drawback on an extremely hot day, especially if the temps are already in the upper range??

In the Quick Start guide it lists the range:

Scene Range (high gain): -25°C to 100°C
Scene Range (low gain): -40°C to 550°C
