The Seek Reveal is a handheld thermal imager that combines high-performance with thermal insight into a device that fits in the palm of your hand. From up to 500 feet away, you can use the Seek Reveal to detect sources of heat (or sources of heat loss), with a detectable range of -40 to 626 degrees fahrenheit.
The Seek Thermal Reveal has a 206x156 pixel thermal sensor with a 36-degree field of view, viewable on its 240x320 resolution display.
The outside sports a ruggedized, ergonomic casing with a three-button navigation scheme. On the right, there's another button that's used to power on the 300 lumen flashlight. The battery lasts for 11 hours when in use, and images can be captured and stored on the included microSD card.
It's perfect for doing things like finding where clogs are in drains, tracking game while hunting or fishing, discovering sources of heat loss in your home, and much more.
You can order the Seek Thermal Reveal now.
Cheap handheld camcorders seem to be all the rage these days, so it’s rare that we focus on them unless they have some sort of standout feature set. Heck, the iPhone 4 records 720p H.264 video itself. Today, we are focusing on the DXG USA A80V handheld camcorder because we think it has a few features that set it apart from the pack.
The A80V is a 1080p camcorder that records at 30 fps, 1080i at 60fps, and 720p at 60fps. All videos are recorded in H.264 MOV file format, which is perfect for pulling directly off the camcorder and viewing/editing immediately. A lot of similar cameras require a transcode before you can view or play with the files. It’s got a 10 megapixel CMOS sensor, 5x optical zoom, 10x digital zoom, 3-inch touch display, and even an HDMI output (with HDMI cable included.)
You can get the DXG USA A80V for $239 on Amazon.
We just got the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 digital camera in for review, and we must say, we are pretty stoked. We were big fans of last year’s DMC-ZS3, and the ZS7 improves upon that model with a 16x intelligent optical zoom, 12.1 megapixel images, much improved facial recognition, and GPS integration. We’re excited to put this one through the paces, especially with the built-in geotagging, and we will have that to you soon. In the meantime, we’ve put together a Lumix DMC-ZS7 unboxing gallery to show off the goods. Check it out!

A few months ago, Panasonic released the amazing Lumix DMC-ZS3 digital camera, and we immediately took notice. After all, a point-and-shoot that features 10.1 megapixels, a 25mm ultra-wide-angle lens, and an astounding 12x optical zoom was certainly something that commanded attention. The camera also boasts a Leica DC Vario-Elmar lens and records high definition 720p video in AVCHD Lite format, at 60 frames per second no less. We were finally able to get our hands on one now that the Lumix ZS3 isn’t constantly sold out everywhere we turn, and we’ve put together a gallery of Panasonic Lumix ZS3 unboxing images to show off the camera itself. Our pal Nate True has been using it, and from all accounts, he loves it. You can pick up a Panasonic Lumix ZS3 at Amazon.
In this episode of Unboxing Live!, we give you a look at the Canon DM-100 microphone attachment. If you’ve ever been unimpressed by the audio quality of your camcorder recordings, adding a dedicated, external microphone might be exactly what you need. The Canon DM-100 attaches directly to your mini shoe-equipped Canon HD camcorder, and drastically improves the quality of the sound. We give you a look at the DM-100 settings and physical features.
We’ve been playing with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 for a few days, and can’t deny how impressed we are. While we work on our Lumix LX3 review, we figured we’d hit you guys up with a quick Lumix LX3 unboxing gallery of the device. We’ve snapped a good 16 images showing you the Lumix LX3, along with everything else that’s included in the box. Our only regret? That we couldn’t use the Lumix LX3 to shoot the unboxing of itself. It’s that good.
Enjoy the gallery, and stay tuned for our review.

Continuing our look at pocket HD camcorders, we were able to get our hands on a new Kodak Zi6 Pocket Video Camera, which shoots in 720p high definition, at a full 60 frames per second. In case you were wondering, that’s unique for ultra-portable HD camcorders. There isn’t much storage space on-board, but that is rectified by the SD card slot, which supports up for a 32 GB SD card. The Kodak Zi6 also includes an SD AV cable, as well as an HD cable, allowing you to plug the camera directly into an HDTV to view the content on it. It takes two AA batteries, and they throw in two rechargeable AAs, as well a charger. We’ve taken a bunch of images of the device, which you can find in our Kodak Zi6 gallery. If you are interested in picking on up, here’s a Kodak Zi6 coupon link, where Kodak is offering $30 off. Not bad.

When it comes to the handheld camcorder market, there are a few key players. Of course, there are the Flip cameras that everyone knows and loves, but more recently these cameras have started to sport high definition recording features. While the Flip Mino HD is out there, we’ve also got the Kodak Zi6, as well as the Creative Vado HD. In this particular unboxing gallery, we give you a closer look at the Creative Vado HD. As you’ll see, aside from the camera, which has an integrated USB stick for transferring videos to your computer, it also includes a rubber case, and even a USB extender cable, which is a very welcome addition. Hit the Creative Vado HD gallery to get a look at all the images.
