Lezandre, how big do you want those IR Pass through filters to be? If your'e intending to cover the CCD istelf, let me now, because mark and i were talking about that about three nights ago. i did some research and ebay has a few for $25+ and there's this nitendo wii IR thing that i'm considering buyign for $7 shipped. It won't be here until janurary though. Other sources are old remotecontrols and IR windows from remote controleed devices. I've tried some caremasand mark tried some remotecontrols, btu their windwos are either green tinted or purple tinted. If you are willing to experiment with them, lmk because i'll beputting it off until afteri repair mypocketpc and my thinkpad.
worse comes to worse, i'll ship it to you.
^ a cheap place with quality gear.
How is daylight a problem? i've never expereinced any issues to make it need any filters while outside with a nitemax...sned me a pic to show mewhat you're talking about please
The glare can ony really be cut out software wise. i read an interesting article a week ago where someone was trying to develop a way to create the perfect image when you are in a bright area and someoen is in a dark area. He found that he needed 4 different gain settings to do it. The CCD iris decideshow much light its going to let inbased on the surroundings, but if a bright light shines, an d you have to remember that these lights are inten sely bright in order to turn "night in to day" kinda, you either sacrifice the whole image or you take the pain. therefore, you might need an anitglare script in the viewing software that identifies the halo and, at the very least, minimizes the distracting effects. you really can't have this cake and eat it too unless you use multiple ccds taking the same image and use software to instantaneously combine the images into one perfect image.
edit...this looks interestin g though...
PRECISION 25MM DIA BANDPASS INTERFERENCE FILTER 670 NM 10 +/- 2 NM FWHM
maybe something along those lines under the same premise? then again, the lights spit out IR so it really won't work.
