Furthermore, night vision footage from security cameras always looks black and white because human eyes can differentiate between black and white better than they can with other shades of colors, like red or blue.
Whether you want to learn how to take photos of the night sky, find out how to paint with light or just want to know the right camera settings for night photography, these essential tips will give you a solid foundation and get you ready to start tackling a number of popular low-light and night photography techniques. Shooting the night sky takes you into the realm of astro-photography. Although you can make a sizeable investment in highly specialised kit, capturing constellations and broad star fields requires nothing more than a SLR and a tripod.
Years ago, someone claimed that Sony camera in "nightshot mode" which removed IR cut filter from optical path can see through people clothes when enabled in daytime. I barely remember it well, but there was even a claim about someone from British royal family filmed "naked" and in result Sony restricted Nightshot mode and then removed it in newer cameras alltogether. I wanted to buy Sony F for some time which one of latest cameras still having this ability.
No other modification to your camcorder is required. Unlike some inferior filters which requires you to make modifications to your camcorder. ADXIR filter.

Have you ever wondered how does your garden or objects around you look in the infrared spectrum? Have you ever realized that even though you are in total darkness, someone can easily watch you? Would you tell that the objects which will appear as black can be bright or even transparent invisible spectrum?
Night vision is the ability to see in low-light conditions. Whether by biological or technological means, night vision is made possible by a combination of two approaches: sufficient spectral rangeand sufficient intensity range. Humans have poor night vision compared to many animals, in part because the human eye lacks a tapetum lucidum.
This is a description of the use of the Sony camera's "Night Shot" capability to capture infrared with a wavelength around nm images in full daylight. The clickable panorama above was taken in the infrared mode with the RG and the ND filter combination looking south from the Getty Center in Los Angeles. It shows the relative transparency of the atmosphere and also the very high reflectivity of the chlorophyll in the vegetation at these wavelengths.
