15 years ago when I worked with IR LED transmitters in industry I used a handheld IR viewer called the Find-R-Scope.

http://www.fjwopticalsystems.com/page2.html

It was very good for seeing near infra red. The display is monochrome.

But Sams FLIR blows that away. The far infra red is much more interesting than the near ir, and the color display is fantastic. A visiting colloquium speaker told me he has a FLIR and uses it in his public outreach show. He gives the kids an ice cube and asks them to paint a mustache, and he places his hand on a phone book and then flips through the pages to see how deeply the heat from his hand penetrated. -- JZ

I found a Raytheon NTSC FLIR security camera for $1800 on eBay, and
another guy bought an identical one for $1000.
