    This review is from: 1080p HD Infrared Night Vision and Full Spectrum Camcorder – Ghost Hunting Camera (Electronics)

    Our paranormal group was in dire need of a new Camcorder with IR capability and if possible, Full Spectrum capability. I was hesitant to start my search for several reasons. First, many pieces of paranormal equipment are expensive, and frankly, our experience has shown that quality is average to poor. Second, I have my reservations about spending a lot of money on something we can only use for paranormal investigations. We sometimes have periods of poor case loads so the equipment is sitting unused, and at some point, we may decide to retire from the hobby. That would leave us with a case of equipment we paid a lot of money for, but could not use.

    With that in mind I started to look and search to see what was available. A search for IR Camcorder typically brought up the Bell and Howell model. This has full IR Capability with built in IR illumination. But the reviews were average at best due to focusing issues while using the IR mode. The average price for these models was around $250 US. Besides the Bell and Howell, there were a few slim models that appeared to be cheap and small. In my research I found that there used to be a great camcorder produced by Sony called the Night Shot and Super Night Shot. These are no longer made by Sony. These were and still are very popular camcorders. Sony produced a quality product, and with a little searching you can still find some on the secondary market as used/remanufactured etc. The prices are generally north of $300 if you can find one. I had reservations about spending $300 on up for a used camcorder with old technology. That was another issue I discovered during my search. Many older camcorders featured older technology. No HD, low resolution. Some Ghost Supply outlets are selling a more recent version of a Sony camcorder that is modified for all time IR use. These cannot ever be used as a regular camcorder, they are not High Def, and resolution is low, all for $340 US. I was not exactly happy with that, and was not jumping to buy anything.

    I eventually found this camcorder here on Amazon. I was liking very much what I was reading. High Def, 1080P resolution, regular camcorder use, manual switching to or from IR and Full Spectrum. Two SD card slots, built in IR light, still shot capabilities and more. I was not familiar with this camcorder and the information here does not list the manufacturer. I Googled Cleveland Paranormal Supply and was able to review more information regarding the specifications on this camcorder. It had everything everyone was asking for but could not find and then some. I loved the idea that it was essentially a regular camcorder by day and a paranormal investigating tool by night. I could pick this unit up and run out to a friends wedding and record the happy event, then come home, swap the battery and head off into the night for some paranormal investigating. The next day I could grab the recorder again and head off to a birthday party and record just like with a regular camcorder, and that night be out again trolling for spirits in Full Spectrum. Also a consideration was what would happen if I decided to retire from paranormal investigating, no problem here, the camcorder can be used just like any regular camcorder so I did not end up with a $300 paper weight.

    I still had questions, so I dropped Cliff the founder of Cleveland Paranormal Supply an e-mail and loaded it with questions. I wanted to know who made this camcorder, and how was the quality, and if it had a hot shoe for mounting an IR light. Cliff was very prompt in responding and answered all of my questions. The camcorder is made by a company named Ordro. This name is not familiar here in the US because they do not make camcorders for the US market, only Europe and Asia. We could not find out exactly if this was a company owned and operated by Samsung or Sony, but the few reviews I was able to find hinted at one of those two companies as the possible manufacturer. The camcorder was consistently compared to the old Sony Night Shot camcorders for functionality and reliability. The camcorder has all of the features that the old Sony Night Shot and Super Night Shot camcorders used to have but with lots of upgrades. I did find those few reviews were positive. I did see a place or two over in Europe who was selling these, and the price as right on the $200 mark plus or minus, so Cliff has a very fair price on these given that he needed to have them tweeked for the Full Spectrum feature.

    This camcorder as described above is a regular camcorder, and can be used for regular every day events like birthdays, weddings etc. But just like the old Sony Night Shots you can manually remove the IR filter for IR video recording, and you can go one step farther and remove the Full Spectrum filter for total Full Spectrum video recording. It is done via the menu as opposed to having a physical switch like the old Sony models. It also features a built in IR…

    Good Camcorder. Regular or Full Spectrum? Where is the choice of InfraRed By Itself?, November 4, 2015

    I had been looking for some time for a camcorder with nightvision to replace my old Sony Hi8 with “nightshot” (as it is large, clunky and quality is not HD) and found this camera. I was able to switch between regular camcorder use and Full Spectrum, but you are unable to switch to InraRed lighting at night. Its either regular camcorder or Full Spectrum (purple), no IR (green) by itself. Not a huge deal, IR is also inclusive to FullSpectrum, but it would have been nice to switch between all 3 of them. If I am missing something here on how to switch it to ONLY IR, please someone let me know in reply. The image is pretty good, full light in FullSpectrum. One caution warning, if you move around the focus does drop and will not focus again until you stop moving. So, this might work better if you dont intend to move it around a whole lot, or better still put it on a tripod. The battery life was okay, not super long, but you can get 2 additional batteries for this camera easily (see link below). The regular camcorder use is ok, not the best color in the world, but I got this more for the FullSpectrum anyway, so not a huge deal. One feature I like with the Sony camcorders is while you are video recording, you could also click the button on top of the camera to snap stills of what you are shooting, at the same time. With this camera, you have to either record video or stop and take stills, one or the other, not at the same time. It comes with a nice small camera bag that snugly fits around the camera and closes with velcro. Nice camcorder overall, and for the right price. Ghost Hunters could do a lot worse for sure!

    I am very happy with my purchase. I’ll be upfront about the four star rating. No external Mic connector. I knew this going in so it’s not something that would be a deal breaker. But it’s something the manufacture could easily do.
    I can’t speak for earlier models. Mine is a BenQ M33 (the blue camera pictured.) Very comfortable in the hand and controls are reachable. Daylight videos are excellent as are most brightly lit indoor scenes in auto mode. I have not tried the various “scene” modes. I didn’t buy the camera for those purposes, but they are nice to have. Fluorescent light can be a bit tricky but that is normal with any camera, film or digital.

    IR/Nightvision – This is not a $1,000 Sony!! However, the IR imaging of this camera is quite respectable. Many people complain about the poor focusing of IR mode. This is typical of all cameras in this price range. The built in IR light is only a single LED. If you use an external IR light the focusing is much better. Two external lights, then it is even better. It’s all a matter of how much light (IR or visible) hits the sensor. Indoor available light (visible light) can be slow to focus as well until you turn on the white light. This is to be expected.

    Battery life for daytime imaging is between 1 and 2 hours. Using optical zoom activates a small motor so that time will be lower if you zoom a lot. Shooting indoors with either light will again reduce available battery time as both lights and Optical Zoom are an additional drain on the battery. Again, this is to be expected. For the current model (BenQ M33) the BT-S7 battery (1900mAh) can be purchased on Amazon with a travel charger. I got the two battery deal but I think it is available for 1, 2, or 3 batteries.

    Overall I like this camera. It is basically about the size of a 12oz soda can. My Canon Vixia is about the same size. All of the controls are reachable, at least for me. I believe the screen is a resistive touch screen and can be a little temperamental. Capacitive touch screens are much better but also add to the cost, so I can’t complain about that too much. And your most used functions, record, lights, and playback can be controlled without using the touch screen. Audio is pretty good for a camera in this price range and AGC can be turned on or off via the setup menus. The mic(s) are on the back of the touch screen door (facing forward) so bear in mind if you turn the screen 180 degrees and watch yourself while taking “selfies,” the mic will be facing away from you. I think because this camera has a built in visible and IR light in the main unit there was no other place to put the mic. The behind-the-screen location of the mic also cuts down on motor noise from using the zoom inherent in so many cameras.

    So, as I stated before, I really like this camera. Could it be better? Sure, but that would up the price. If you want pro quality, get a second job, save your money, and purchase an expensive Sony or Panasonic. This camera (and the Bell and Howell DNV16HDZ) are today’s point and shoot camcorders for IR and visible and do a great job for the money. The ability to add 37mm filters is awesome as most cameras at this price point are not threaded for filters. Try slapping on a 950mm IR filter (even during the daytime) in IR mode for some really awesome effects. Various IR filters also can help at night by blocking visible light from interfering with your paranormal investigation! Some reviewers expect way too much for a camera at this price. I would like to see a external mic jack and capacitive touch screen, but I’m not holding my breath. 🙂 Happy haunting!
