The Raspberry Pi Noir Camera is Infrared-Sensitive. The Noir camera is supplied with a square of blue coloured plastic.

By fitting the blue square to the SnapPiCam we can make an Infragram camera.

For more information about Infragram please visit their website at

To fit the blue square to the lens assembly we'll be sandwiching it between two black card layers.
The Magnetic Ring has been stuck to the second card layer instead of the second plastic layer. This means that we are able to use all the lenses while the camera is in Infracam mode.
Try not to touch the blue square with your fingers.
The SnapPiCam is now enabled to take raw Infragram images. You can process the raw images online, for free, using the sandbox.
