How To Build A Thermal Imaging Camera

how to build a thermal imaging camera

    thermal imaging
  • The technique of using the heat given off by an object to produce an image of it or locate it

  • Infrared thermography, thermal imaging, and thermal video, are examples of infrared imaging science. Thermal imaging cameras detect radiation in the infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum (roughly 900-14,000 nanometers or 0.

  • Survey which detects thermal losses through a buildings fabric.

  • Syn. thermography. Producing an image of an object by means of the infrared radiation emitted by it. A camera tube with a suitable lens system may be used to produce the image.

    how to
  • A how-to or a how to is an informal, often short, description of how to accomplish some specific task. A how-to is usually meant to help non-experts, may leave out details that are only important to experts, and may also be greatly simplified from an overall discussion of the topic.

  • Practical advice on a particular subject; that gives advice or instruction on a particular topic

  • (How To’s) Multi-Speed Animations

  • Providing detailed and practical advice

  • A chamber or round building

  • A camera is a device that records/stores images. These images may be still photographs or moving images such as videos or movies. The term camera comes from the camera obscura (Latin for "dark chamber"), an early mechanism for projecting images. The modern camera evolved from the camera obscura.

  • television camera: television equipment consisting of a lens system that focuses an image on a photosensitive mosaic that is scanned by an electron beam

  • equipment for taking photographs (usually consisting of a lightproof box with a lens at one end and light-sensitive film at the other)

  • Incorporate (something) and make it a permanent part of a structure, system, or situation

  • construct: make by combining materials and parts; "this little pig made his house out of straw"; "Some eccentric constructed an electric brassiere warmer"

  • build up: form or accumulate steadily; "Resistance to the manager's plan built up quickly"; "Pressure is building up at the Indian-Pakistani border"

  • Construct (something, typically something large) by putting parts or material together over a period of time

  • Commission, finance, and oversee the building of (something)

  • physique: constitution of the human body



The idea for Lexi and the Denver skyline came from Joe McNally's Hot Shoe Diaries book. If you haven't read that book I would highly recommend you go get the dang thing. It shows you how you can use those little flashes such as the Canon 580ex or Nikon SB900 to create some really nice looking images. Granted Joe is a major Nikon proponent I suspect you could do the exact same images with Canon gear. The chapter that inspired me was about shooting and elf or something with a city scape in the background. Basically it was an image of a girl with a hoodie and the city scape all blue'ish like. While I was reading the book I also was in conversations with Lexi's mom, which is my boss as well at my day job, about getting some unique senior portraits for her daughter. You typically don't see senior portraits like this image and I wanted to try something very different.

The critical item with this image was the time window of good light. The window was only about 10 minutes as the sun was setting behind me. During this critical window the sky was turning from daylight blue to night time black. By setting the white balance of the camera to tungsten and double gelling the single Nikon SB-900 with CTS filters made the sky go all deep blue. I also dragged the shutter as you can see from the car lights streaming in the background. Lexi is sharp because the flash exposure was only like 1/1000th of second on her face but the overall exposure was 1 1/3 seconds. I did have the camera on a tripod to keep the building lights a bit more crisp. The single SB-900 in the Lastolite Ezybox was triggered with another SB-900 in commander mode on top of my camera.

During the shoot the SB-900 in the softbox did a thermal shutdown, which has never happened to me before. Apparently it was pumping out light at almost full power and I was taking a ton of images because I only had one chance for this image.

Where #3 sfp seems to be in relation to #4

Where #3 sfp seems to be in relation to #4

THIS IS BUILDING 4 - aerial photo overlay with thermal image - a pretty good match, but the cameras were at a slightly different angle - this is why some points mathc and others dont.

Looking at the purple shade, we can make some guesses. This purple is an overlay of where #3 SFP heat signature is. If we assume that the pool in #3 is intact and in the area where the heat is visible, then this Unit #4 SFP area is DIFFERENT. What can that mean? The buildings are supposed to be identical.

There seem to be some heated areas on #4 that are outside the probable pool area. Are these spills? Is water boiling over the top somehow, or leaking thru cracks?

TEPCO admits the water is at least 90C in some spots, which means it could be hotter elsewhere.

Much higher resolution US spy photos are in the hands of the US government, but they "shared" them with TEPCO and let TEPCO decide if we get to see them or not.

No matter how you shift that square around, it can't seem to cover all the red hot spots inside the building.
