I remember years ago when IR cameras began to come down in price where the average researcher could buy one. There has been some debate that IR is pretty useless in the field due to foliage & growth in the woods. IR game cameras have not produced much either with a few shots now and then raising eyebrows but nothing conclusive.
These days FLIR is coming down in price and a few researchers have access to them, in time they will probably be priced low enough that the average researcher could own one. We are now beginning to see some thermal images trickle into the field.
Here is the question:
Do you think FLIR will be any better at recording a Bigfoot than IR is/was? Is there an advantage to having a FLIR in the field? Or is it yet another waste of money?
I believe that no photo or video will ever prove the existence of Bigfoot so I'm not asking if it would. I believe most agree a photo/video is not proof. What I am asking is if FLIR is useful to the researcher in their own discovery of the creature? Do you think it would help you or is it just another technology that ultimately will not render any useful results?
What is your opinion of IR cameras and FLIR cameras as a tool for Bigfoot researchers?
I dont think you could use flir recorded signitures for anything as far as proof of bigfoot.
The only thing I would use it for would be to locate the critter in the dark for a possible shot.
I know there their I've seen them I need no proof for myself. But in the hunt situation one could be of use for locating purposes.
On nights that I used IR nothing happened. Nights I didnt we had fun.
