After I saw these images over at PetaPixel taken with an infrared still camera, I just had to see what NightShot mode on the Sony MC50U looked like while my son played Xbox Kinect last night.

This effect is possible with any camera that offers a night vision mode using an infrared light to capture images in total darkness.  The key to making the Kinect sensor lights more clearly visible, however, is to cover up the camera’s built-in infrared lamp and use only the Kinect infrared light points for illumination.
