Reasonably priced IR/thermal imaging camera

I don't need something like the Predator's thermal/IR graphics, but a thermal imaging camera seems like something that would be interesting to have/use. Except they are $800 and up. Are there any cheaper options ?

I'm not looking to do serious work like house energy audits or finding overloaded wires behind walls or any creeper stuff. Just always liked the Predator images, and wondered about making my own.
Years ago, when I played woods-paintball, I always thought it'd be great to have one, since foliage provides a lot of cover to sneak up, I could spot folks coming. Plus it'd be neat to see the heat loss in my house. While I don't play paintball any more, it still seems like a neat/fun thing to have or play with, but holy cow they are expensive. FLIR and Fluke both make models, but they are not cheap.
