The Ultimate Torch
First of all, if you are willing to spend a few grand on a torch, you are a fool. Once you know what this thing can do you will realise it might be worth it, but you easily just bodge something together your self.
The torch outputs 85,000 candle power, that's pretty bright I think! As well as bright normal light it can output the same power but using infra-red light. You might be thinking why has it got infra-red? humans cannot see infra-red but, cameras can. Yes, that's right! this torch has a camera built in to it. So effectively you can take pictures in pitch black. Great stuff.
The camera can store up to 2 hours of video and a whole bunch of still images. Are you starting to see why it is called the Ultimate Torch? I sure am. It gets even more ultimate! The torch will allow you to see what you are taking a video of or taking a picture of with the 1.5" built in pop-out LCD screen. Amazing!
I may seemed to have got a bit excited about that, I still think you are mad if you pay 2.5k for a torch. You can buy me one though. Anyway, back to torch.
So, you have got those night vision images recorded in the torch, what now? Slot the torch into it's included docking station(wow!) then transfer them to your PC. Quick and easy, now you can go and upload them to youtube! Of course, you wouldn't do that, would you?
OK, so now you have spent all that cash, and all you have is a bright-ish torch and a night vision camera. OK granted it is very compact for what it can do, it still isn't worth it. Get your self a nice big somewhatloads-million candlepower torch, a decent happy snapper digital camera and you are away. The torch requires less faffing about of course!
"Why is it pointless?"
A decent zoom camera would have more functionality!
"Why is it cool?"
You can spy on people in the dark, of course, I wouldn't do that!
