Gadget News: Midnight Shot NV-1

Forget about those low ligh cameras, enter the night-vision digital camera the Midnight Shot NV-1 Night Vision Camera. This handy little camera delivers 5.0 megapixels and an invisible infrared flash to light up your subjects in total darkness. Or experiment with Infrared photography that lets you do crazy stuff like see through some types of fabric and materials.  This is a G rated blog, so I will avoid the obvious wise cracks here, but from a technology perspective infrared light can penetrate surfaces while light visible to the human eye bounces off.

The Midnight Shot NV-1 Night Vision Camera is a dual camera with both standard photography mode and infrared night mode. When you switch to night-mode the infrared blocking filter retracts to let all infrared light in, at the same time a super-bright IR LED invisibly illuminates the entire scene in the viewer.

The Midnight Shot NV-1 sees both visible light and infrared light, making both viewable to humans. If you want to accentuate this effect you can purchase an infrared filter which allows only infrared light to pass through, eliminating the visible light spectrum. Here are some details:
