Thinkgeek’s Midnight Shot NV-1 Night Vision Digital Camera

Up to date, I haven’t seen any digital camera company to feature a special ability like to take photo in the complete darkness while still can see things. Canon, Lumix, Panasonic, Sony, etc. No, I don’t think they are going to make one anyway because they think it’s not useful. However, things goes differently on Thinkgeek’s Lab. I’m not sure what motivate them, but they’ve actually launched their “Midnight Shot NV-1 Night Vision Digital Camera” that could capture what your eyes can’t see in the complete darkness! Hopefully no ‘soft stuffs’ (a.k.a. ghost) will be captured with this camera!


The Midnight Shot NV-1 Night Vision Camera is switchable between standard photography mode and infrared night-shot mode. When you enter night-shot the infrared blocking filter normally over the lens retracts to let all infrared light through, at the same time a super-bright IR LED invisibly illuminates (to your eyes) the entire scene.
