Nightvision: How IR Changed Our Hunting
Hey, IR nightvision cameras aren't just for sex videos, although apparently they are nice for it and rather forgiving too. I think I look a lot better in nightvision that with all the details of a flash going off.
What the technology has allowed us humans to do is see without light. Why should that matter, right? Well, you take a film crew into the woods with a flood of lights and all you see are the happy plants around you, and are blinded to what is in the dark folds beyond that periphery.
With infrared, you are able to see things in a spectrum we do not visualize and therefore we are seeing in the dark. Just try to imagine shows like "Ghost Hunters," "Ghost Adventures," and "Destination Truth" without it.
As an investigator, it can make it possible to walk while using an IR camera screen and see one's way around without the need for a flashlight or the light from the flashlight ruining the filming of the surroundings. Expect that as I go into some investigations here soon, I will be taking the IR camera to places to give you lots of creepy perspectives including a ghost hunt in an old schoolhouse in July, a Bigfoot hunt in September and a UFO hunt in October, as well as the Vulture Mine in November.
So, let's all say "thank you" to night vision. It's not just for sex tapes, although I seriously wouldn't mind it since it does tend to make you look better...
