Axis announced the release of the Q1921/-E thermal cameras (where -E is the outdoor model). The new models will be an addition to their existing thermal lineup, which includes the Q1910 (Refer to our review of the Q1910).
In addition, a data sheet was released. Significant points of differentiation between the Q1921 and the Q1910 should be noted:
| Frame Rate
||Up to 30 fps
10mm, F1.2, FoV 55°
19mm, F1.0, FoV 29°
35mm, F1.2, FoV 15°
60mm, F1.2, FoV 9°
|13mm, F1.25, FoV 17°
Indoor 10mm & 19mm: $3,999 USD
Outdoor 10mm & 19mm: $4,499 USD
Outdoor 35mm: $5,399 USD
Outdoor 60mm: $7,599 USD
Indoor: $2,995 USD
Outdoor: $3,495 USD
Another point of note is the Q1921 supports interchangeable lenses, and individual lenses will be available for purchase. Although, cameras will not be sold without a lens.
According to Axis, the Q1921 is available for commercial shipping as of September 24, 2010.
A comparative model is in FLIR's fixed F series, the F-348 features 320x240 resolution, 9mm lens, 48° FoV, and an MSRP of $6,575 USD. The Q1921 is competitively priced when considering the MSRP for the 10mm outdoor model (at $4,499 USD), and the slightly higher resolution.
Overall, FLIR still has an advantage because of their wider support of options like 640x480 resolution, where the new Axis line only supports up to 384x288.
