    Certainly not as cheap as Pere solution, but not terribly expensive by night vision goggle standards.
    These look very nice indeed. And no fogging issues yes?

    I've not had any fogging problems.

    There is a cheap infra-red camera available for the Raspberry Pi. A dark-box (ie. more rigid than a dark-bag) could be contructed for film-loading, processing etc. with the camera+led pointing inside it and the screen and psu outside. Not as cheap as the car-cam idea, but sharper at least. Several options indeed

    This? https://www.seeedstudio.com/Raspberr...le-p-2773.html

    Is it the latest PI IR camera?

    Pi gear does improve

    My wife's mother gave us an old digital camera, I took the filter away from the sensor and re-assembled it all. I then bought a tiny IR floodlight and put it ontop of a cupboard and pointed it toward the ceiling. These floodlights still emit a small amount of red light, so pointing it toward the ceiling stops that light being a problem. I have made some goggles out of a pair of safety goggles and some light black foam. As yet have not put the camera inside the goggles, but the camera works perfectly, I can read the labels on my chemicals. The only part that needs to be outside the foam is the little zoom lens, so no light leak.

    Could you point me toward one of these tiny IR floodlights? I seem to only find quite powerful ones online and I am afraid they are too powerful to use in the darkroom. Thanks.

    Does this have a built-in infrared light source?

    Yes, and it's rechargeable, thereby saving on batteries.

    I will probably go for this in the end. Looks comfortable and 1x means it is going to be very usable.
