Infrared POV cameras?

Does anybody know of any compact/action/POV cameras that have infrared capabilities? At the moment I am looking at modifying a couple of GoPro Hero 2's but was wondering if there is an easier off the shelf option available.

Hi John,

Have you checked the offerings from ragecams.com or the Novo at radiantimages.com?
Can I ask what modifications you are thinking of?

Yep Alistair I had checked out the Ragecams options - however I needed several cameras and didn't feel like converting 4-5 cameras to infrared which I may never use again. We ended up just using lights - which we really didn't want to do for this shoot as it spoiled the mood a little (filming some POV promo stuff in a haunted-house theme park attraction).

Before settling on using lights I was thinking of getting the Ragecams 2.8mm Infrared lens for all the cameras. I almost went ahead with the order until I found out it was a public holiday in the USA and would've meant the package would not have arrived in time for the shoot.

Also while we're on the topic of lens mods, I did end up ordering a 50mm lens from Ragecams for another trip I've got later this year where I'll be trying to travel light - swapping a 2-camer DSLR video kit for a couple of GoPro's.
