Great little device!

Jeremy Hancock, Amazon
13 May 2011
  • Summary: I bought a Sony HDR-SR11 10.2-MP 60GB High Definition Hard Drive Handycam! I bought the Sony HVL-HIRL IR NightShot and Video Light to use with my camera! It gave the camera night vision capability, as far as the IR light would shine out into the darkness! I am very happy with it!

Didn't work.

Dominique M. Chandler, Amazon
30 April 2011
  • Summary: Didn't fit my camera. Didn't work. Contacted seller and was told to try again because it should work fine. I had multiple people look at, including local camera store. Light was dim...didn't help at all. Bought it for my SONY MiniDV. Been in the box every since.

This is great for night and dark recording; especially in total darkness!

bluewolfmike, Amazon
22 April 2011
  • Summary: This little device can easily extend your night time range (in total darkness) to at least 60 feet! The intensity can also be modified so your don't have to worry about glare when recording up close. Well worth it!
