While advances continue they didn't answer your questions and I don't see spending that much on a lark.
There's also the real issue of image stabilization. Do you expect them to tell you all about photography at such distances and conditions? Hint: Consumers would!
I have a question about this infrared camera for Smartphones:
Can it really work up to 550 meters for this low acquisition costs?
I do not trust it
Maybe someone already has experiences with it.
I would appreciate an answer, thanks.
