Most cameras have a flash so that they can take pictures at night or in the dark. This camera has an awesome feature that allows you to to take pictures at night using and invisible infrared light. The coolest part about this product design is that you can shoot through some fabrics giving that x-ray touch. Sounds like a super cool product design to me. I think I would buy it just so that I didn’t get glare on pictures like a flash camera would give.
