    I have just created the GroupGet for FLIR Lepton PocketCam With Lepton and GUI (Round 2)!

  • Avatar

    Why is this round significantly more expensive than other rounds (~$200+)?

  • Avatar

    This version includes the Lepton. Our initial ones did not. FLIR no longer offers to us the Lepton-less option. We have requested to keep it however and hope at some point they will allow it.

    Ah, I understand - thank you. Question on design - can the LCD be un mounted and extend away from the board with a longer ribbon or is it completely coupled?

  • 9zi7mnmg normal

    The ribbon cable can be removed from the board, but not from the screen. So it may be possible to extend it with the right adapter.

    We asked FLIR if they would let us fulfill this even though we didn't hit their MOQ and they will! So we have brought this back. We are going to add 5 days to the expiration date and then fulfill.
