Infragram is an Affordable Infrared Camera

There are many uses for infrared cameras, one of them being to monitor plant health. Most people who are looking to get one have been held back not by limited availability but by the market prices of these cameras.

Aiming to make them more affordable are the folks behind the Infragram project that’s currently up for funding on Kickstarter.

Infragram

The Infragram camera was initially developed by Public Lab to monitor the effects of the BP oil spill, but now they’re offering it to anyone who wants a cheaper way to study plants or monitor plant health. If you’re the DIY type, then you can pledge $10(USD) to get the Filter Pack which provides you with a filter and instructions on how to convert a webcam or camera that you already own into an infrared one.

There’s also the Infragram Webcam (at $35) and the Infragram Point and Shoot (at $95) if you want something that you can use out of the box.

The images you shoot using the filter will be uploaded and processed by a site to be set up by Public Lab. A minimum resolution for the point and shoot is 2 megapixels, but that may change with the number of backers that the project gets.

You can find more information or make a pledge to support the Infragram project on Kickstarter.
