If you want to use your full spectrum camera/camcorder to the fullest you need to light up the whole spectrum of light. That is what the Phantom Full Spectrum illuminator does. If you use just an Infrared Illuminator with your Full Spectrum camcorder you are only recording the Infrared spectrum. You'll need to have one of these to illuminate the wide range of the light spectrum.
Keep in mind that this unit does emit visible and non-visible light - similar to a flashlight. If you like to investigate in complete darkness, you want to purchase an infrared light.
