We Have The LOWEST Prices On Infrared Filters!

We manufacture our own filters with custom made precision German glass.

X-Nite filters block all visible light letting only infrared light pass. The number after the X-Nite specifies the filter transmission at 50%.  An X-Nite715 transmits 50% light at 715nm.  These filters are for use on cameras that are infrared sensitive.  Filters are constructed of Schott optical cut & ground precision glass in a two-part metal ring and appear completely black to the human eye.  Compatible with all Sony Niteshot (Nightshot) and Panasonic Nightview camcorders. 

A Quick History Of Niteshot:  Sony has changed the Niteshot feature a few times during production.  The first Sony camcorders could shoot Niteshot in the day.  Then Sony found that people were using the camcorders to see through some clothing, so they changed the camcorders to have a fully open aperture in Niteshot mode.  This meant in bright light, the picture is overexposed.  

By crippling NiteShot, Sony has also limited the use of the cameras ability to see in the near infrared for many other uses.  We modify the Sony cameras so that they can see in the infrared and visible range in normal mode.  Thus, all standard camera functions are available.  NiteShot mode remains stock.



Brand New *Re-Enabled* Sony Hi-8, D-8, Hard Drive, DVD and MiniDV Camcorders with Full Niteshot Capability! We have brand new cameras that have been specially modified to be fully Niteshot functional.  All current Sony camcorders sold with the Niteshot feature force the aperture to remain fully open or partially open when in Niteshot mode.  Some camcorders will work with just an IR filter and some will not.   Unmodified Handicams overexpose outdoor pictures and severely limit the depth of field in Niteshot mode when not using an IR Filter.  We have modified brand new camcorders so that when you are in Niteshot mode, all functions remain turned on.  In Niteshot mode, even the front IR illuminator LED's turn on!  You can shoot in broad sunlight and get great focus while in Niteshot mode with or without an IR filter.  Furthermore, when you are not in Niteshot mode, the camcorder functions completely normal.  Example pics!
