For an IR pass filter you might try using the filter from a darkroom safelight. -- JZ

Chele,
It's been
a while, but off the top of my head, in general on
some older Sony's you need to put the Night shot switch in sort of
a
half on half off position so it's working like normal, but the IR
filter
is out of the way. You then thread an IR pass filter (this blocks
most
of the visible light) on the front. On other camcorders you will
need
to open and remove the greenish IR filter and then use an IR pass
filter
on the front. IR pass filters vary so web searching and/or trial
and
error may be needed to find the best one for your use. This is
for
daylight use.

I haven't been able to find this in the archives, even though I know

it's there. Who can tell me about the modification that you can do to

some model of a Sony camera that makes it sensitive to IR?
