Has an infrared video camera, is it worth $1000 to us hunters?

That's not too much more than the retail price on an iPhone 7 plus.

Definitely not worth it. Using infrared while hunting is illegal, anyway

It's not for coyotes.  But still not worth it IMO.

I use a phone far more than anything else I own so if it costs me $1/day to get whatever one works best its not a big deal.   3 year life x $1/day = approx $1000

1000 is the retail price. The contract renewal price will likely be far lower.

I agree. If you're into the technology aspect of it, phones these days are worth a lot. Navigation, awesome cameras, communication, the list goes on and on. An infrared camera is cool. I don't see a place for it hunting, but I use my phone for a lot of other things besides just a phone.
I just got a new iPhone 7 plus and the full retail price is almost $900 and they've been out for close to 2 years I think.

I was due for upgrade on mine. The price per month(Verizon) equates to the posted retail price/24 months. No discounts. I guess it would depend on the provider.

I may upgrade to a 6 or 7 when the new one comes out. The prices should be pretty decent on one of those.
I'm still with the 5

I'm still rockin the S4,  kids ruin their phones.   I think it's all the apps they DL and it hacks their phones. 

I'm always the last to upgrade, which I want to upgrade because the S4 doesn't do wifi call ans SMS texts (AT&T thing) whereas the S7 and up does.  I don't get cell service at home.

If I lived where you guys live and had reception issues, I probably wouldn't have one either. Or maybe I'd have a flip phone or something just for emergencies.

The 8 is the new one shipping in next few weeks.  The X one is fancier screen and costs a bit more and it ships in 2 months.  New strategy to introduce a premium version.

If u need it the At&t mini tower works for cell service if u have internet.

If you're getting it just for the infrared, I second the seek. It's most likely a better quality imager than what Apple got on the cheap.

It should work great for finding Biggie's at night.

I don't have the regs in front of me right now.
I know hunting with infrared is illegal, but is hunting with infrared equipment on your body illegal.
If so, then just being in possession of that phone while hunting could put a hunter at risk of being ticketed.
