The HX-A1 has a 0 Lux Night Mode for recording no-light japes. The camera itself includes an IR filter (night mode) and can be used with an infrared light source to catch that pesky red-eyed tree frog. It also features loop recording so you don’t need to worry about running out of storage. When recording for longer than an hour, this mode retains the most recent hour of scenes by erasing earlier scenes. The camera keeps recording seamlessly, by managing video in two-minute segments.
