    What kind of camera can see a person in detail in pitch black outside
    under tree shade with no IR illumination at 170ft.
    Would my Sony handycam with Nightshot & Supernightshot and or B&W
    film be able to pick up any IR illumination needed for the camera at
    170 ft.
    My handycam picks up brightly IR illumination from My short range
    exterior camera and IR LEDs at 170 ft.
    So what camera does not need IR illumation at 170 ft. I have been told
    this does not exist yet.

    I also have a Sony handycam with the night shot settings. On a
    fishing/hiking trip to the border waters, I tried out the setting
    after dusk, but before total darkness. I couldn't see my friends
    canoe, which was 150' away, but I could hear their voices. I just
    pointed in the direction of the voices, and was later amazed when the
    video turned out looking like it was shot in fairly bright light. I
    couldn't convince anyone that it was shot in near darkness. I have
    never seen an IR camera that works this well, even with remote IR
    illumination.
