Night Vision Camera
Everyone today knows about night vision devices. In the films they are often used by superheroes to attack the enemy at night. Someone uses them as sights for night hunting. And some just like video filming in the dark. Be that as it may, today's invention proves that infrared shooting can be done with a GoPro budget action camera. How is this possible? Let's figure it out.Set the exposure to +2, and turn off automatically turn off the screen. So we can shoot a video in constant mode.To focus on the object right in front of you will need a special lens for glasses of virtual reality. In fact, it will act as our viewing lens.To install it, take a bottle of dark plastic from cheap energy, and cut it off at the neck. Since the distance to the lens will have to be chosen empirically, it is better to cut it with a margin.Try on our lens on trimming the bottle. Now you need to somehow fix it.Cut the bottom of the lid from the same bottle and press the lens with it. Done!To combine the LCD screen of the camera with the lens, well, and install them on the glasses, we will need to make it a body. To do this, we take pieces of foamed PVC for prototyping, and cut into pieces of a small box. The most convenient way is to cut them straight to the size of the camera.The viewing window on the camera screen is made rectangular. Work with this material is best paint knife. We assemble the case of our device on superglue or some other for PVC products, and glue the neck of the bottle-lens.We make small cuts on the case,so that you can easily pull out the camera when it is needed.It is time to fix our lens with the camera on the body of the goggles. The plastic is thin and brittle on them, so it is necessary to drill it with a drill bit with extreme caution. The author advises not to drill to the end, but to finish the hole with a painting knife. Masking tape, which should be pasted over the drilling area, will help to avoid cracks.
Device descriptionOf course, our invention does not have an electronic infrared converter, as in full night vision devices is a complex device, inside of which in vacuum, an electric field is created that converts infrared rays to electromagnetic. But then it would not cost mere pennies. Our device is based on the work of the lens of a conventional camera,which is able to shoot not only in high resolution, but also in Ultra HD and 4K. It is equipped with a backlight ready infrared flashlight, battery powered. All elements are mounted on plastic glasses so that the device can be freely used without additional means - tripods, clothespins, clips, etc.
Necessary parts and toolsIn order to assemble we will need a night vision device at home:
- Low cost action camera Go Extreme Pro Cam;
- Flashlight with infra red LED;
- Lens for glasses of virtual reality;
- Plastic protective glasses for construction work;
- PVC pipe collar with socket;
- Two clips for PVC pipes by 25mm;
- Half a meter of paracord or nylon rope;
- A small piece of foamed PVC sheet, 3-5mm thick;
- Glue for plastic or superglue, masking tape, nylon ties, bolts, nuts.
Getting StartedFirst we need to prepare action camera and properly configure it at the same time making sure that it still sees infrared rays.
