I noticed a strange thing: when I film the IR LEDs of my VCR remote control with
my video camera, when I press a button on the remote control I see the LEDs
flashing of a white-blue light in the LCD monitor, while of course I don't see
that effect looking directly at the LEDs. Does this mean that my video camera is
sensitive to IR rays?
