The camera will be converted by removing and replacing the internal filter to the buyers choice of filter available in the dropdown menu below.
We use a selected range of good quality used cameras to help keep costs down, but we can supply new models for an additional cost.
All of our cameras are refurbished and carry a 60 day warranty.
The camera will be modified internally by replacing the internal filter allowing you to compose and view full spectrum/infrared images in real time.
If you need help selecting the right filter or camera then please feel free to contact us via email or phone and we will happily provide our advice without obligation.
Short exposure times will be maintained once converted, even when external filters are used (an additional filter mount will be required to achieve this).
Here are several of the filters and the effects they provide;
550NM – GOLDIE EFFECT, ALLOWS POST PROCESS CHANNEL SWAPPING
