  • Mike’s right, there’s not much difference as far as the IR usage so long as you match your receiver. If it doesn’t matter for for the receiver, one thing I ran across is that the 850nm might be useful to know, yes most of the light is out of the visible range, but without a filter or anything, you’ll likely be able to see a very faint red glow from them in the visible range. I’m actually about to take advantage of this because out of laziness I want an IR illuminator that I can visually confirm has power without pulling out my camera on my phone.

No public wish lists :(
