In these cases it is recommended to use a microUSB cable or adapter to allow proper aiming and positioning of the camera (sold separately).

I have used this successfully looking at heat loss from houses and for classic car radiators.
I read several reviews that compare this camera with it's close rival. I prefer the photos to have no outlines, and I don't mind the clicking noise. it is rather comforting to know it is rescaling, which is what the clicking signifies.
