New Fujifilm camera senses in infrared too


Infrared photography (see Fortherock's hummingbird above) is beautiful.

But Wired knows what its arrival in mainstream digital cameras means for The Internet: "Sooooo Fujifilm's New Camera Sees Through Some Clothes."

Infrared photography can create some very artful pictures. It captures trippy, dreamlike images of landscapes. In broad daylight and the thick of summer, trees and grass look like they're dusted with snow. At high noon, a light-blue sky takes on a dark-purple hue.

But one odd side effect of infrared photography is that, in some cases, it can see right through clothing. Not always, and the clothes have to be pretty thin in the first place.
