Can you convert video cameras (IE the HVX-200) to do infrared?
I believe infrared exposures need to be much longer because they block most visible light, I don't know how it would work for anything but still pictures. I do remember seeing a video on youtube of it working though so I dunno
a lot of video cameras have fast lenses like f1.2 or so. the sensors are also not the same as a still cameras.
It would be used for exteriors with fast primes and then actors composited over.
sounds interesting. i like where this is going
considering making my D50 IR, but not sure what I'd use it for
convert it and sell it to me
In astrophotography we remove the IR filter that camera manufactures install so that we can get at the deep red color we call "hydrogen alpha" emissions.
Some cameras do not have the filter such as the Canon 20Da.
seems on google people modify sony camcorders most
you buy first then convert
im not that ambitious
I need a film quality camera - so an HVX with lens mount at the minimum
dont see how useful it would be, your gain will be maxed, picture dark and fuzzy. the sonys get modded because they have ir illuminators for the night shot right?
