Hi,

After information overload, I have decided primarily on a A200 as my next camera.

Your opinions would be appriciated.

As for the request, anyone know if the camera can handle infrared? A well to tell is in a dark room with a TV remote pointed at teh camera. If you see a "light coming from the remote then it can.

The image shoud be something like in the attachment.

Any information woud be greatly appreciated.

This doesn't answer your question but it's interesting so I thought I would pop it on. If you take an ordinary colour shot and put it into Photoshop. Then go to:

Image>>Adjustments>>Channel Mixer.

Check the 'Monochrome' box and massively increase the red channel, leave green as it is and massively reduce the blue channel, you get a fair imitation of an IR shot. Maybe try red plus 140%, green zero, blue minus 80%. You probably want the real thing though, Wratten 87 etc. I'll attach a comparison shot which I just processed - it's very low resolution but should suffice for this purpose.

There's a useful article at:

Sorry to be slightly off-topic.

...........and to answer your question at long last ..................



Yes - there is a response. Tried it with three r/c units, all respond surprisingly well at least up to 10ft away.
