FLIR VUE Pro Thermal 640×480 Comparison: 9mm, 13mm, 19mm

Last week we compared the FLIR VUE Pro cameras side-by-side.
This video shows the difference in Field of View for the VUE Pro 640×480 9mm, 13mm and 19mm.

The 19mm image is 32°(H) x 26°(W) FoV.
The 13mm image is 45°(H) x 37°(W) FoV.
The 9mm image is 69°(H) x 56°(W) FoV.

The FLIR VUE Pro specifications can be viewed here.

Thermal Battle of the Sexes – Who Has Warmer Hands?

 

Using a special thermal camera, a National Geographic photo team captures the different body temperatures of men and women, most noticeably in their hands.

Degrees of Seperation

The old saying “cold hands, warm heart” may have some truth to it. University of Utah researchers found that though women’s core body temperature can run 0.4°F higher than men’s, women’s hands run 2.8°F colder—87.2°F on average, compared with 90°F for men.

“Blood vessels in the body’s extremities are the first to constrict when temperatures drop. The gender differences in such cold responses are still not completely understood, says Johns Hopkins University’s Fredrick Wigley, but hormone levels and muscle mass could play a role. Women are also up to five times as likely to have Raynaud’s, a disorder in which cold temperatures or even emotional stress can make blood vessels temporarily collapse. Fingers can turn white, blue, or red in even mildly cold situations, such as when opening a refrigerator.” — Eve Conant, National Geographic Contributor
