Our area of expertise and main focus area is IR or thermal cameras. But when needed we integrate colour or ordinary cameras in our system. This picture is taken from quite a height using the zoom-function of one of those cameras.
The reason for using an ordinary camera is the same as filming with a not optimal lens, getting reference material and getting to know pros and cons of different equipment combinations in a very taxing environment. Colour pictures also work great as reference material in data collections situations where the material is compared to the material from the IR cameras.
However, sometimes a sequence or picture in colour can sometimes be better. Two quick examples are 1) when you have to recognise the individual animal for different reasons, something that is quite difficult using an IR camera and 2) when something new shows up on the IR recording and you need visual information to understand afterwards what you’re actually seeing.
