Sony deletes X-ray video vision

August 13, 1998

TOKYO -- Sony Corp. said yesterday that it has modified some video cameras after finding they could be used for filming more of their subjects than meets the eye.

Some versions of the Handycam have infrared technology that lets users shoot at night or in darkness in a "night shot" mode.

But magazine reports revealed that in some conditions the camera can "see through" clothing -- underwear can show up, especially on those lightly dressed, and people wearing swimsuits look almost naked.
