How can the Z30 see light coming from the strobes and flashlight?
The Z30’s image sensor can detect wavelengths outside of the visible spectrum of light (what your eye can see). With the IR-CUT filter enabled the camera will change the sensor’s settings to pick up more of the short wave infrared light. In the video, we use shortwave infrared flashlights (IR) and IR strobes which are invisible to the naked eye to be seen with the Zenmuse Z30’s IR Cut mode.
What use case is the Z30 IR-Cut mode for?
This equipment feature gives law enforcement an additional tool to easily identify who are friendlies vs suspect. If you are interested in this IR flashlight or IR strobe kit please contact us!
