DV136 camcorder modification

by sauroman1 / May 11, 2012 5:46 PM PDT

Hello. I wanted to ask does somebody know if dv136 3.1mp camcorder has replaceable ccd/cmos?
I'm interested in making highly sensitive monochrome camera for ultraviolet photography. Usually such camera are rare and are very expensive. But it is possible to modify ccd to be sensitive in uv range, by removing Bayers color filter array and microlens, showed here Or simply replace it with monochrome/ uv sensitive ccd module.
DV136 would be perfect to modify for black&white/ UV photography if it has replacement ccd, because it is probably most cheapest camcorder.

You should post your question on the Camcorders Forum.

Here is a link to the Camcorders Forum:

It would help if you told them what company makes the DV136 camcorder.
Canon, Sony, etc, etc

You didn't supply what model you did this before. I'm encountering folk that think this stuff is made of parts you can swap out. But how to break it to them without insulting them is the trick.

I think that manufacturer is Vivikai, but camcorder itself has no company name on it. I will repost when I get approval from sellers.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
