HD nightvision camcorder

Postby Slippery Jim » Mon Mar 14, 2011 1:32 am

Can anyone recommend a decent HiDef camcorder which can either utilise IR or image intensifying tech?

Anything less than £1k would be appreciated.

Danny.

Hi Danny.

it may be worth holding out for a while as many consumer level 3D cameras will start hitting the market soon.

thanks

Sorry for the late reply. I want to run a night vision camcorder alongside a visual spectrum camcorder.

I noticed the links you provided were for NV aditions to SLR cameras. I've a Canon EOS 550D. Any suggestions? It records full 1080p HD.

Hi Rich, I'm not a big fan of 3D video in the consumer market. Not sure what the implications will be for the UFO field. I suppose it may make it slightly harder to fake in CG.

I just wanted a suggestion for an IR/II camcorder I could run alongside the camcorder I have now to provide a comparisson between the two.

Thanks,
Danny.

Hi SJ,

Nice digital SLR cam you've got :wink:

If you want to go pro', there you go, use a GEN 3* NV adapter :
http://www.ownthenight.com/catalog/i72.html

* http://nightvisionguide.com/night-visio ... ation.html

It's one of the top dogs/best rated NV adapter on the market for Canon.

But, you still did not tell us what you exactly want to do and since I do not want to give you my opinion for you to compare with what other people say, so this is where you should start. It might be quiet an investment, careful...

EDIT : And remember, in the description of this GEN 3 NV adapter, they say :

Only AstroScope™ enables you to use your high performance Canon lenses to shoot full frame images at distances beyond 1000 meters!


We do not know what is the upper limit ! If you want to snap "UFOS" & "IFOS", remember that lots of them will be located at a much greater distance than 1000 meters. When that will be the case, your NV system might not be useful !


Cheers,
Buck
