It would help if you told them what company makes the DV136 camcorder.
Canon, Sony, etc, etc
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 http://photo.net/digital-camera-forum/00CM0R 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.
