    Post camera price

    Article on Firehouse.com from California mentions Thermal Imaging Camera for $9,000.00, Which one did they purchase for that price?

    Depending on your dealer, the MSA 3000 can be bought for somewhere between $8,000 to $10,000.

    The Bullard T3 lists at $9,800

    Default Low Cost Cameras

    Check out the ISG K-80. It is priced right around the T-3. It has a lot of featurers that may be of interest to the people looking to save money.

    ours was about 18,000 (we have a Talisman) and it is well worth it! i believe it is better than the 1 other type i have seen, but cant recall brand name. ours was 18,000, we applied for it on the NC fire grant, and got it, so they paid 1/2 of it, and at the time, our county offered 4,000 toward an imager for any dept that purchased one. so we ended up paying 5 grand! heck of a deal!

    Default Cost of Cameras

    Take into consideration the differances in the cameras. I have done alot of research lately on cameras. Price should not be the purchasing factor. Primary concern should be does it do what you want it to do? Set up a test. compare cameras. even though camera claim to do the same thing they don't! Each are different. The technology is the same but different. Is there moving parts in the camera, how does it hold up in heat, will it take the beating of an actual search and rescue, whats the warranty, and most of all was it designed to be where you are going to go with it?. I have seen a camera that is totally awsome and would recommend it. Contact me if you wish and I will share my info.
