What about these red dots. The article says Nikon D2Xs, a DSLR. Seems like a wide angle lens. Granted the situation is extreme, but it means that optically it is not restricted to compacts. Now maybe these cameras are modified for the purpose and that has introduced it. Anyway it looks very familiar in pattern and colour.
