Infra-red filtering on video camera lenses?

  1. Hi there,

    Do modern video camera lenses need infra-red filtering? I know the majority
    of CCDs will detect IR and I assume that IR will cause a 'softening' of the
    image if it isn't filtered due to chromatic (or lateral) aberration.

    I think they some of the better ones have a filter that moves in front of
    and back out of the way. Sony camcorders actually have infra red "night
    shot" with an infra red illuminator. early models had a green cast but now
    thats been cut down too.

    I have shots lots of IR Digital Still Photos. Actually, I am selling my set
    up on Ebay right now; If you are interested, go to this link to see the ad
    and example of IR photo I've shot:

    If you do a Google search for Digital infrared photography, you can finds
    lots on the subject.
