There is some info you should know regarding recording at night before actually shooting a video in dark night conditions. Recording at night does not involve the same requirements than recording during daylight, and might actually become a big obstacle unless you have foreseen a way of solving the difficulties that this factor would imply.

It is important that you always record taking into account the light of the environment in which you are since your video quality will directly depend on this factor. In order to properly record during night, you would need to use an artificial light source. There are artificial light sources which are specifically created for recording video at night and which can be a great help and a very suitable way for solving the problems which lack of light brings at the moment of shooting a video during night.

Some camcorders have an infrared recording system which allows its users to shoot their videos at night, and even during complete darkness, achieving a good quality final product. These kinds of systems function by illuminating the area you focus your camcorder on with infrared light and then recording it this way. If you are wising to record at night or in complete light and do not worry about having a great quality final video, this might be the best solution for you.

The quality of a video which was shot by using infrared illumination is not the same than the quality of a video shot under sun light, but it still can be very good and surely is very helpful. Without this kind of systems, recording at night can be a very difficult or expensive task to achieve.

Recording at night or under complete darkness conditions could involve the use of very powerful light sources which can be bought for this activity in particular. Using these artificial light sources implies some difficulties such as having to carry them and being careful with them since they can brake easily, but the video shot by using them can be of a high quality when they are properly used.
