Tips for buying cameras/camcorders for recording UFOs.

If you want a nice infrared camera like the one above visit the link below. 

1. Don't buy a camera, buy a camcorder. Cameras are best at photos, not video like camcorders. Video is better evidence and shows us the movement of the craft. 

2. Buy a camcorder with 25+ optical zoom or better. This is more clear than digital zoom. Optical=lens as opposed to digital=computer generated zoom.

3. Make sure it has at least +50 digital zoom, the general rule of thumb is the best optical zoom plus digital with quality is 3X your optical zoom, meaning if your camcorder has 70 optical zoom then your digital zoom will bring that up to 210 zoom before the details become too distorted. You will have to test this. Sure your digital zoom says it goes to 500X but details will blur way before it gets that far.

4. Always buy HD or Full HD camcorders, don't buy HHD and think thats HD…no its not. HHD is the memory inside the camera or SD card memory. HD is mine, gives me high quality video without using up too much memory. HD makes 720p HD video (very good detail) but Full HD gives 1080p HD video (best quality) but expensive.

5. Best brands are Sony (most expensive) Panasonic, JVC, Cannon, but before you buy a camcorder, go to youtube to check out the one you like. They have a lot of test videos testing any camcorders zoom and quality of video. Adjust youtube settings for quality. I have one old Sony, but my new one is Panasonic (decent quality video, but the 70+ zoom I demanded.) Best probably being the Sony CX260 Full HD. 

6. Only buy ones with HHD or SD slot. This means your camcorder needs to have a place for an SD card (slot) or a built in memory (HHD). Never use the old tapes or small disks. Waste of money and time converting your video. I know…I have both those old ones. 

7. Infrared. People are just now learning that UFOs that are cloaked or invisible to the naked eye can be seen with infrared camcorders. This means you need a camcorder that has been converted to FULL SPECTRUM, by taking out its filter that stops ir light from entering. Then you must buy an infrared lens of 760 (cloudy days) 850 (normal days) or 950 ir (for sunny days). I just bought the 950 because I don't want to change lenses a lot and it still does great on cloudy days. To buy one go to Ebay and type "CAMCORDER, INFRARED," in the search box, many will come up.


  1. Before buying a digital camera we should take time to small research. So one can understand about our camera and what other people say about that.The given tips are also very helpful for new camera buyers and help them to buy nice camera for them.

  7. Very informative post!!!! Sometimes we need buy and sell cameras, so if you have knowledge about its parts and important accessories, then it will be advantageous for selling and buying. But if you don’t have knowledge then do some research and must keep in find above mentioned points. So that you will not face any problem in the future.

  8. What size infrared lens does the SDR-S26 take in millimeters? There are a lot of options out there for lenses could you share why you chose the one you did? Thanks!

  9. Use a TRIPOD for best stable images. If recording with a telescope, buy an adapter ring then record on the Moon shadow line, that's where you'll see structures. The closer you get to the moon the faster it will move from the view, so the best next thing would be a tracking "REFRACTOR" telescope, ORION gave me the best images for the price, Celestron are only good on the expensive side, also the eye piece should be good quality usually higher price.
