Night Vision for CVS Camera

Lately for whatever odd reason, I’ve been watching Attack of the Show and I just saw on a recent episode where David Randolph did a hack to make the CVS camcorder into a night vision camera. It’s as simple as removing the IR filter from the lens and adding in IR LEDs, a switch for the LEDs and a 9 volt battery to power them. Cool!

If I’m going to be popping open the case and drilling holes in it, then I’m also going to put in the nut with the proper threads to be able to attach this thing to standard tripods and camera accessories. If so, I might make the soda bottle tripod.
