For about fifty dollars, these GoPro alternatives are great for using in areas where I may be worried about the camera getting damaged. Though normally these cameras block ultraviolet and infrared light using a hot mirror. I removed this glass and now the sensor sees in full spectrum (Ultraviolet, Visual Light and Infrared).
I was able to find a filter adapter that fit the sjcam pretty close, I added in double sided adhesive tape to fill the small gap. Though I also added some hot glue as I think the tape may melt, though I do not think the got blue will get hot enough in the sun to melt.
I use a battery pack so I can long term recordings like video lapse of the clouds. I cover the battery in a white paper towel so the sun does got cook the housing.
Using the filter adapter, I can screw on different passthrough filters like the IR720, IR850 or IR950 filters to capture certain wavelengths of light. I need to get an ultraviolet filter for it though I have not found it in the right mm filter size.
Its nice to have a cheap camera that can do infrared as well now, I get worried with my expensive DSLR and lenses doing risky things. Though with this setup Im less worried about it.
Addresses below to help me buy better camera equipment and support me to travel to locations to do photo and video and overall great blogs in new places. I would be happy to list some of the contributors in my posts for donations that help me along the way.
