Product Description

This Campaign is now Funded and Closed! Batch 2 is now open here:

The FLIR Lepton™ is the most compact longwave infrared (LWIR) camera core available as an OEM/hobbyist/maker product. It packs a resolution of 80 × 60 pixels into a camera body that is smaller than a dime.

Because we are so excited about this module, we collaborated with Pure Engineering to make a small development board to help you quickly start developing your applications on a Pi or Arduino. It is available here from our friends at Tindie: Pure Engineering also created a homepage and github repo for data sheets and sample code for the Lepton dev board here:

Please note that FLIR will not provide technical support for orders placed here so be sure to use the "github" repo, the Pure Engineering portal, and the campaign discussion tab to connect with other developers for support. We will also try to help, and all Leptons will be under FLIR's standard warranty for all buyers (big and small). For this batch, shipping is FREE to US addresses. Shipping to anywhere else in the world will result in a flat fee of $305 for the Lepton and shipping. We are releasing Leptons in batches so that early adopters can get started quickly on their projects without having to wait for the 1000th backer. Please help get the word out about this campaign and this platform.

We at GroupGets seeded this campaign ourselves to give users a good idea of what is possible with the platform, and we hope that users will respond with their own examples. Please help make this campaign a success and be part of a new and unique online DIY movement inspired by independent development.

Only a couple of days to go on this batch! If you missed it don't worry, we'll roll batch 2 out soon after this batch closes.

Why GroupGets?

Through a special arrangement with FLIR, this is the only way to buy Lepton in small quantities for evaluation and development. You are literally paying the same price per unit as if you bought the full minimum order quantity.

    Hey Pentatonic, I'll find out tomorrow and post it up to you.

    Ok I found out and it's not pretty. For UPS it's looking like $125 USD with insurance and tracking. We get a volume discount for US orders (which we pass on to users of course) so it's possible they will apply it to this. I can not get confirmation on the discount until Monday. They tell me that customs issues drives the price up. The other option is to use the US Postal Service but I think that it is too risky for something like this.

    I would like to ask how much would shipping to the EU, Latvia cost?

  • Avatar

    Warren and Romans, let me talk to my UPS account specialist on Monday to find out. I will absolutely try and get the best possible rate.

    I'm interested also interested in the shipping cost to Australia. Hope it doesn't push it over my price range.

    To save about 50% off of normal international shipping rates, would people with non-US addresses be willing to wait longer for shipping and NOT have tracking for half of the UPS shipping cost by using the US Post Service? Otherwise it's just over $100 using United Parcel Service.

    I'm in Canada, joined the group buy. I'd wait longer for shipping and no tracking via USPS.

    Cool. That's good feedback. And thanks for joining. To everyone else, Please e-mail me your postal codes directly at ron at groupgets dot com and I'll give you the exact costs for both options and you can decide what you want to do. Thanks.

    Good news everybody, it looks like we can ship anywhere in the world w/in 3-5 business with tracking and full insurance via the US Postal Services for $55.00 USD. We can fit multiple Leptons in the carrier package so it will be the same price for orders that have multiple Leptons.

    If anybody has cheaper options through a corporate account, please email me and we'll ship through your corp account.

    So to be clear, the final price of international orders will be a flat $305 that includes shipping and the Lepton in electrostatic and protective packaging.

    Hello, I am very interested about buying one of these modules. But now I´m in Germany up to December, the shipping will be before that day? Or should I use my residence address in Mexico ?? Or can I change my residence address later?

  • Avatar

    We will definitely ship before December. But I need everyone to help get the word out so that we can hit the 100 for this batch in time. Thanks!
