I want to video tape a ufo but haven't really used a video camera to much. When your trying to video tape a ufo at night does it matter if you use the video camera's light or not? I know I can't will a ufp to appear but don't most video camera's capture things that the naked eye can't somehow ? I know some people say we can't see ufos but they are always around us.

I don't expect to capture anything but if I ever need to I rather know just in case!

Should I even go try to capture anything right now or is it not worth it?

no lights on the camera.
test with different options on planes and stars and such.

Sure it's worth going out and trying to find one to capture. I'm working to get a video camera myself and go out someday. I believe there is a setting or modification you need on the camera to capture light that we cannot see. I don't know any references as to how thus yet, sorry.

Thanks!

I may try using a tripod or should I not?

Yes. Use a tripod so the camera is grounded to improve quality. Than if you spot one keep it tracking for awhile than detach it and record it while holding it.

talking about camera's. Has anybody heard that with infrared camera, your chances of filming one are greater. If this is true, does anybody have or can site any references to that apart from the sts videos or flir that everybody's already seen.

So a $499 video capture probably isn't infrared correct?

Whats the cheapest one do you think ? Just curious.

I juat tried doing a capture of two different stars.

I didn't realize how difficult it would be to get a capture of a star thats right above my head! Wow!

My neck hurts now lol. The video camera has a lcd screen but I have a hard time adjusting using it because I have to be in the same motion as the video camera.

Its going to be difficult getting use to. Haven't used a camera or video camera much ever before.

The cheapest infrared camera is close to zero dollars. Just do a google search for making your own infrared camera. You can buy filters as well, but if you like DIY, it looks easy and cheap. Now I just need a camera..

I got mine on ebay for $200
Just do a search they are every where.
Dont buy a camera that requires IR illumination. You want one that has .05 lux

A normal piece of night footage sadly isn't good enough proof, but as someone eles said a IR piece of footage would be fantastic. A piece of day footage is of course the ultimate but the chances are whether it's night or day you are very unlikely to see one.

Good luck though, i'll have my fingers crossed for you.

Hey guys, first post yay


So what is wrong with nightshot? I have a sony HD Cam; I know that it uses an infrared light to illuminate whats in front of you, but i was under the impression that the crafts we are looking for give off a similar light. AKA in the Infrared

How is a filture better?

1) Go into a camera store, buy a roll of slide film....

2) Hand the newly aquired roll of film back to the salesperson behind the counter, and tell them to get it developed. If they look at you in a confused way, explain why....

That sounds hillarous...
I guess I should try this just for the fun of it.


Hmm, I get a video camera too soon. Maybe I should really try it.
Send some UFO's over to my place.

I have a camera that can detect the light coming off the IR diode off of my remote control, is that the same as the IR that would come off of UFO's?
