I used infrared LEDs from Radio Shack to make a fairly bright floodlight, I considered using a reflector to make a spotlight but never got around to it, If you were to rig something like this up to the back of your van, with your camera you could light up huge areas. Infrared LEDs are great because the drain on a small battery is fairly light. I could not tell how well the camera did to illuminate in your post a few weeks ago. Night vision tech has always fascinated me. Have fun with upcoming projects

Built in Lights

The cameras I used on the trailer and top of Handivan have I think 18 UV lights built in with a sensor to kick them on at night.

It's cool as heck driving at night and not only seeing who's behind me but the road itself plus if I stop at a light and pull up close enough I don't get blinded by the lights I can see inside the car LOL.

I've got a regular floodlight on the back of the trailer I can switch on to back it up at night but I'd like to use some more lights on my front porch so I can wire a few of these cameras into one of my computers...
