I have filmed many strange objects with my camera... My camera is one of those original discontinued Sony's which when using the correct filter has a
Xray capability on certain clothing. The reason for this is the camera is able to film during daylight hours using the "NightShot" mode and your
able to adjust the exposure and contrast manually, where as the newer cameras can not. I feel this along with my IR filter enables me to film what is
not visable to the naked eye.
As a filmmaker (and Im not even sure if this is neccesary, just common knowledge) what you stated above doesnt seem right at all.
First, what model is your Sony camera. I dont know (Maybe im too young) about a XRAY capanility buy with Filters (Which just block lights spectrums)
doesnt seem very plausible. Unless your camera is not a Bayer CCD o CMOS sensor, and its a some kind of gamma ray sensor. But I must admit I have no
special Knowledge, I know a video camera (consumer o pro) isnt capable of it.
Secondly. You are wrong about Newer cameras not being able to adjust Expousure (Aperture actually) and Contrast. In fact, I own a FX-1000 Sony which
can be used manually in every aspect.
Still, contrast and expousure doesnt change what type of electro magnetic light lengh wave the camera can see. The sensor will capture the same RGB
light. What expousure changes is how much light will it enter, an contrast, it will just change the gradient level between darks and whites. You could
see more than the eye with, lets say, a high sensitivity (Low lux) Video camera, which can see more on dark, or even be forced by whitebalance.
Yes its true that Nightshot does actually see a different spectrum wavelenght. And as a Infrared camera, can see things the human eye cant.
But your way of talking about it seem more as if you think you know what you are doing, when youre not.
Please excuse my english, if I sound rude, I dont want to, its not my first language.
And be happy to correct me if Im wrong, thats why Im here for.
