Scb4000 ir filter removal
      #5593471 - 12/28/12 10:37 PM

Greetings:

A friend of mine just bought a scb4000n and tried to remove the ir filter. After resembling the camera, it did not work. He sent the camera back to samsung usa. They fixed(at no cost btw) the camera but returned the camera with the ir filter even though he instructed them not too.

My question is: has any one had trouble removing the ir filter on recent cameras and have they found that the procedure is different from ken james video guide from a couple of years ago? My friend did say that his recent camera was different from the one ken used in his video guide.

Brian

Has anybody removed the it filter from one of these cameras lately?

If so, has the layout of the electronics appeared to have changed compared to ken james' tutorial?

Thanks for any input,
Brian

Ken's video was done with a scc-a2333/ The scb-4000 is different-there is a heat shield and some other slight differences- I have both- I opted to not physically remove the IR filter on the scb-4000- what I did was at first was just wedge a small rolled up piece of paper to keep the IR filter from moving over to cover ccd- then I superglued it to one side. This keeps the clear filter in place over the CCD at all times. It is probably wearing out the worm gears in the filter slide mechanism though.

Thanks for the confirmation. I was wondering if they were different. Does anyone know of a guide for removing the ir filter from the 4000?

I will hopefully have a chance this week to take a look at my friends camera and see what can be done with it. I may have to do something like you did and keep the clear "filter"in place.
