For those of you who dont know what a "snipers light " is its basically an led with a scope on it so that you may direct light only on your target. Making it easier to hunt at night.
for this instructable your going to need :

-$1 led flashlight
-$300 sony camera

( i get im strechting the rules abit with the whole dead computer thing but digital camera do have a microchip soo ...yea)

i also dont advise going out and buying a 300 dollar camera just to do this my friends broke there camera stunting so they gave it to there tech guy ;p(me)

Step 1: Take apart your exspensive camera!!!!

Any digital camera will do however the better the zoom the better the light.
and in this case very good zoom .
now i there arent any specific rules to taking it apart im positive all of you on here can manage that perfectly fine ;p but dont break the lenses or the lens components.

little tip go to the bathroom before you get started it takes forever to take it apart

 Is the lens from a kodak v603?
no sony somthing<br /> <br />
Snipers don't illuminate their targets with (visible) light as it would give their position away. Does this LED-lens combination work for something like a spot or extended-range? Does it stretch the range of the LED beam?<br /> <br /> L<br />
yes it does rly well actually&nbsp; and i found a light that does the samething as this and it was called a &quot;snipers light&quot; thats why i called this a snipers light...i didnt think any one would be using this to shoot people with ....so yea i just use it for shooting at targets at night<br />
Sounds good - how far does it reach?<br /> <br /> L<br />
it goes past my backyard fence so id say atleast 100 yards tops maybe idunno ill get a bud to help me measure it ;p<br /> <br />
&nbsp;So could this same principle be used as if it was a macro lens on cameras? My&nbsp;only&nbsp;input would be to get a reflective casing for the LED to increase its range tenfold<br /> <br /> <br />
Great instructable, but really, if you're teaching someone how to dissasemble a $300 camera, please use real words.&nbsp;Words like&nbsp;&quot;U&quot;, &quot;R&quot;, &quot;Plz&quot;, and so on are quite a nuisance.
im not teaching any one to disassemble&nbsp; a 300 dollar camera im showing u a part from the camera u can use for this project<br />
&nbsp;...Which you need to&nbsp;disassemble&nbsp;to use, correct?
You need to add a small resistor or your LED&nbsp;will burn out very quickly (few minutes of use). Just scrap any X0 Ohm resistor (10-100&nbsp;ohm) from any old parts (there was probably one in your camera!)&nbsp;but nice job, I&nbsp;like the idea!
