I suggest you research "IR block in camcorders" so you know why such a light doesn't work until you change that out. It's well discussed so let's let you bone up a little.
I've been searching for information on an infrared light that will work for my Sony Handycam DCR-SX63. I know the camera doesn't feature night shot, but I read that if you point your remote at your camera and it can pick up the blinking light a the end that it can read infrared light (which mine can). First of all, is this true? And if so, can anyone recommend an IR light that will work with my Handycam? Personal experience with one would be good to hear about too.
