Take Video in Total Darkness

All sorts of interesting things happen in the dark, but how do you take video of them? These tips will help you take video in even the darkest places.

It could be a mystery animal rustling in your garden or the phantom cookie thief who keeps sneaking into the kitchen in the dark of night. Whatever it is, you want to take some video for proof. But how do you do this without turning on the lights? Neither the mystery animal nor the cookie thief is likely to come out if you leave all the lights on and your camcorder running.

It might seem like an insurmountable problem, but there are a couple things you can do to take video in poorly lit or dark places. You can either make the most of the light you have, or you can add more light that only your camcorder can see.
