What kind of camcorder is the Sony NightShot?

Forgot the model#, but it’s a Sony Digital8 camcorder from around ’98-’99. Works great, though I don’t recall ever seeing anyone’s naughty bits when using the IR mode. Great for watching critters at night though. That’s why I keep it. These nighshot camcorders are also handy for certain kinds of laser lab work.

What happens when you switch to NightShot mode?

Switching to ‘Nightshot mode’ physically displaces the camcorder’s internal glass filter called “IR Cut Filter (ICF)”, which means that much more NIR light reaches the CCD. In-between the optical lens and the CCD, most camcorders have this special “ICF”.

How does the ICF work on a Nightshot camcorder?

As shown below, a Nightshot camcorder has a external switch – the “Nightshot” switch – to easily remove this ICF. Therefore it is possible to obtain a clear see-through image under any NIR environment. In the Nightshot mode, the ICF is displaced from the path of the light rays, while the CCD can receive an ample amount of the NIR.
