Night vision
I did a search but most of the topics I found weren't answering my question..

I am looking for a method of shooting night vision photographs (all green ugly photos). I work at a dark job, and not being able to shoot off photos is killing me. (I gotta have something to show the kids someday!).

Anyways, I am looking for some sort of NVG mount for a DSLR (Olympus E-500). If it could double as a handycam mount as well, that would be awesome. The main problem is that I can't have anything that emits it's own IR light, otherwise it would bloom out the NVGs people are using..

I noticed Nikon had a mount, however I couldn't find any information on putting it on other cameras..

Any suggestions? The cheaper the better. I'm not looking to shoot amazing high-def shots with it, just enough to document my life...

You could convert a camera to remove the IR filter on the hotplate and place a visible light filter in it's place. Then you could get near IR emitting lighting..

I don't think you could do any of this for cheap, and the results may be so-so...

You need an image intensifier type device that amlpifies visible light rather than an IR device that requires a light source. I have one of the old generation1 devices. It's huge. The new ones are much smaller and have much better image quality.You will need some kind of adapter to mount a camera to it...

I won't part with my Sony 717, but maybe you can find one used? I simply desaturate the images to remove the green..

In Night SHot the Sony 707, 717, DSC-V1 and some others actually actively emit IR light to allow exposure. Using one of these in Night Shot mode would bloom out the NVG's of other people..

You can quite clearly see the roughly circular shape of where the camera is emitting IR light in the 2nd picture you posted..

NVG (or image intensifiers as they are called work on near-infared light. Only Thermal Imaging devices can work in total darkness AFAIK...

Thanks for the info...and I understand. perhaps I didn't really look into how the poster wanted to use it, thus I just quickly put up an option worth looking at. I don't use it much, but it is fun to have..
