Re: Infrared wildlife filming at night

I would be interested to hear about the IR C300. I am shooting with a IR converted 5D III. Lighting is a challenge though. I have a mix of Bosch UFLED and other cheaper LED stuff. What kind of LED lights are you guys using?

Hi Sabyasachi

Re: Infrared wildlife filming at night

Cees - how did it go with you everfocus camera. Did you get an answer if it was faulty?

Have someone tried the difference between 940nm and 850nm IR light. The 850 nm light give a visible lamp with a red glow. The 940 nm IR lamp are not visibel - I'm told. I have noticed that the foxes and beech marten (Martes foina) are afraid of the red IR lamp on 850nm. They get used to it but it can take several days and they probably only do, because I have placed some food for them.

Re: Infrared wildlife filming at night

Hi Bo,

They didn't get any further than stating that the Everfocus is not compatible with the standard HD-SDI capture devices. So I sent it back and am looking for another solution.

Part of what I wanted to do with the Everfocus I will now do with my IR-converted GH3. And I'd like to know more about this one: marshall electronics cv500-m | B&H Photo Video

Will see if I can find one in Holland.

Hi
Excited to hear - and see how the Panasonic GH3 works. The bigger chip must give a better "light" sensitivity! Where did you buy the converted GH3?

Re: Infrared wildlife filming at night

I bought a 'normal' GH3 and sent it for conversion to Protech in the UK.

Gallery - Sample Images From Cameras We Have Converted - Thank You All!

Only wished it did not have the 30 min limit.

Re: Infrared wildlife filming at night

Hi Cees,

Thanks for that it sounds very interesting indeed. I am trialling the Korean CHDC -34BSDC that has potential but will not be as easy to use as the GoPro with its built-in recording and more compact form factor..
