I have a miners lamp that I use for lamping would that be okay to put a IR filter on. Would it work with a camcorder in night vision . charlie

It's finally set the epoxy resin gone hard. Should've used more hardner. The DSA I'm making is for another Sony camera I bought it's a HDR-HC7E.

Looks a bit of a bodge but a bit of leccy tape works wonders.

Thanks azz for the info on the clips
Cheers kevin

Thanks Mark.
Yes it's a lot higher spec than my other.
All setup now, hoping to get some rat shooting in a piggery next weekend.

yes probably would work but it depends on the lamps performance and the camcorder spec to how good it will be.

Hi Azz

I know you have seen the way I mounted mine but it is so simple and looks good as well (well I think So),no need for any jubilee clips as the rubber of the inner tube holds it all in place.

Sony DCR-SR32E fixed to SWAT Scope.

Step up ring 30mm - 52mm £3.90 from http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/300628615395? ... 1497.l2649
Camera Lens Adapter Tube 52mm £5.97 From http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/250475822818? ... 1497.l2649
Pieces Of Rubber Cycle Inner Tube Free (had some in my shed
Insulation tape,any colour under the tube all I had was red :) .

Thanks Azz

If if wasn't for people who are willing to share their ideas on this and other sites I wouldn't have had a clue where to get started.
