Update #8

Most IR cameras are shipped!

Comment

Just an FYI - all except the 3 "fully assembled" IR kits were shipped yesterday, USPS. 

Documentation for the kits is IN PROGRESS -- if you're interested in collaborating on this, please sign up on PublicLaboratory.org (you should all have gotten an invite, but it's open) and get in touch on the mailing list!

Remember - Public Laboratory is an open source community, not a camera company -- so the more people who collaborate to create thorough and well-presented documentation, the better! Think of it as Wikipedia crossed with Instructables, for people interested in the environment.

So, documentation is coming together at publiclaboratory.org/wiki/dual-camera-kit-guide - it's pretty incomplete but growing fast. We'll tend to focus on "first steps" so you'll be able to get started when your kit arrives.
