Does the LED infrared light HVL LEIR1 work with a Sony RX10ii?

Hello,

 

in the search for a camera light from Sony I found a light that was advertised on the Sony homepage to be compatible with my Sony RX10ii. So I bought the HVL LEIR1 with LED and infrared. The LEDs work great and they are bright. But when I try to use the infrared light with the camera it does more or less nothing. Reading the manual of the light it says that you need to have a Night Shoot mode so that the infrared light works.

 

So does this infrared light work now with the Sony RX10ii?

 

Thanks for your help!

Hi SuperMario_2015,

 

Welcome to the Sony Community!

 

I doubt that the  infrared light will work with the Sony RX10ii, the camera does not have Night Shoot mode.

As with most digitaml cameras, the RX-10 II has an IR Blocking filter over the image sensor.

 

The HVL LEIR1 is a fine supplimental light source for visible light, but the IR will be blocked by cameras that don't have a night shooting mode.
