Summary - Obtaining a dedicated infrared or ultraviolet forensic camera can prove to be a great problem for a researcher with limited funds. This paper illustrates how to modify a standard reflex digital camera to function like a forensic camera, using filters and light. This modified camera can be used to carry out detailed analysis of bones excavated on an archaeological dig using infrared and ultraviolet photography. This technique could be extended into other fields of study with little additional cost.
