Video tutorial: Taking infrared pics with a standard digital camera

You could probably get away with producing the same kind of results with a little post-processing in PhotoShop, but this is still a pretty cool demo nonetheless. In the video embedded below, you will see how you can take a little leftover film, electrical tape, and a piece of cardboard to produce infrared (“X-ray”) pictures with a standard digital camera.

I can’t imagine you using this to diagnose cavities or to look into your buddy’s broken bones, but it doesn’t seem like too much effort to try out. How does it perform against cameras specifically designed for infrared pictures? Try it out and let us know via the comments at the bottom of the page.
