yes, it’s true . in year 1998 sony sold 700,000 camcorder that had technology to see through your
The cameras had special lenses that use infrared
light (IR) to see through your clothes,such
as on dark colored, thin clothing – like swimsuits. The
main factor is how well the fabric absorbs IR light
waves. It’s not for regular digicams, but rather for
camcoders with a Infrared IR night vision mode, and the resolution is low.
Sony recalled the camcorders when they found out
about this feature, but the night vision camcorders that they
subsquently released,some people figured out how
to modify the camera to get the see-through-clothing
functionality and thousands of the modified cameras
are for sale on the Internet .The camera with all the
filters sells for about $600 brand new, and is easy to
obtain.Sony said it has no responsiblity for altered or
modified products.A lot of people have used this
technology for wrong purposes.
