Cameras and Red Light

  • I'm working on a project that involves monitoring bees inside a hive. Bees can't see red light, so it's great to use red LEDs to light up the inside of the hive. It doesn't make things too hot, and it doesn't disturb the bees -- it may even help cut down on disease.

    However, all the cameras seem to have a red filter that makes it almost impossible to see anything, even when there are a lot of red LEDs. Is there any way to make the cameras work better in red light? Some what to remove the filter, or some version of the camera that works better in red light than others?
