the most common problem we face with digital camera today is shooting in complete darkness. no matter how advanced today’s digital cameras are, they will still need some form of low light condition to give a decent image. not anymore, if you have the Midnight Shot NV-1 Night Vision Camera.
sporting a 5.0 megapixels sensor and an invisible infrared flash, this camera is totally capable of capturing images in total darkness. how many camera can claim to do that? of course, the camera is perfectly capable of taking under normal condition, and it shoots both still images and videos as well. oh, for your information, this camera might be able to see through some types of fabric and materials, effectively making them a ‘X-Ray’ camera of sort.
not that we encourage you to do anything evil with it but it is purely FYI. maximum resolution for the NV-1 is an effective 2560 x 1920 but it can be interpolated to a maximum of 3920 x 2490. it also features 8x digital zoom, a 3-inch LTPS LCD, electronic flash and 16 MB of internal memory while more storage is available via the SD card slot (up to 8 GB).
the Midnight Shot NV-1 Night Vision Camera retails for $139.99 through ThinkGeek. unfortunately, at the time of this posting, it is listed as ‘out of stock’. however, you can get yourself notified (by ThinkGeek) if this lovely gadget comes back on.
