 Key Feature Differences

 The top (1st) key difference between these two thermal cameras is the infrared detector resolution - Fotric 326 has 384x288 resolution compared to 220x165 resolution on the Fluke TiS50 (204% more pixels on Fotric 326, or 74,292 more pixels). It means the Fotric 326 will provide higher quality and larger radiometric images, and can reveal more details. 

 The second (2nd) key difference between Fotric 326 and Fluke TiS50 thermal camera is sensitivity (NETD). Fotric 326 has better thermal sensitivity and can detect a smaller temperature difference. 

 The third (3rd) key difference between Fotric 326 and Fluke TiS50 thermal camera is the support of the smartphone. Fotric 326 thermal camera supports smartphone as the operational screen display and data processing with a smartphone APP, Fotric LinkIR. While Fluke TiS50 supports connection with a smartphone via WiFi to stream the image. You can always upgrade the smartphone to upgrade the overall Fotric 326 thermal camera performance while nothing you can do to the Fluke TiS50 thermal camera.

 The fourth (4th) key difference between Fotric 326 and Fluke TiS50 thermal camera is temperature measurement range. Fotric 326 thermal camera can measure up to 1,202F while Fluke TiS50 can only measure up to 842F. With a wider temperature range, Fotric 326 can be used for more applications. 

 The fifth (5th) key difference between Fotric 326 and Fluke TiS50 thermal camera is the frame. Fotric 326 thermal camera has a 30Hz frame rate while Fluke TiS50 has a 9Hz frame rate. Fotric 326 thermal camera has a much faster response when you turn the camera around to check different objects.
