Hello, I want to see in fresh water with a camera I am designing. My question is will small 5mm IR LED's work better than 5mm super-bright LED's. I've been told that IR works better, but if fish are cold blooded, you really shouldn't be able to detect them with IR correct? If the red spectrum is longer, I assume you should be able to see farther with the standard Red LED. On the other hand, is white light better than IR or red light? Thank you.
