has since modified their camcorder
s so the Nightshot
mode no longer has exposure
control, and daylight shooting will be totally blown out to white, you can still buy these near-infrared
filters (aka PF or Xray) from several places online. Kaya Optics is one I remember. You will, of course, pay the pervert markup
Leaving aside the voyeur factor, these things can also show guns or shoplifted items beneath clothes, a robber's face beneath a mask, even see through tinted windows.
I'm not sure why SharQ
is so sure I'm wrong, but I have actually seen
from cameras with these lenses, and you can indeed see right through thin clothing, masks etc. No empirical
data on tinted windows; it was alluded to on one of the review sites.
I guess readers will have to venture out into RL and see for themselves. :o)
