Description

Lumix G3 Modified Camera Converted To Full Spectrum

UV Capable with Our Quartz Lenses and Illumination.

The Ultimate Camera For Ghost Hunting, Forensics or IR photography. This Full Spectrum Converted Digital Camera Body Is A Great Way To Experience Standard, UV, Full Spectrum and Infrared Photography.  Unlike standard glass that blocks UV light, the Camera has been converted using fused silica that allows UV, IR and Visible light to pass to the sensor.  External filters can be used to isolate specific wavelengths of light. A UV ghost hunting camera, how cool is that.

To achieve UV images, we advise using a quartz lens as standard off the shelf glass lenses block out UV meaning that long exposures are required to expose the sensor to a limited amount of UV light.  When fitted with the Quartz lens, UV illumination becomes an effective form of light to pair with the camera, excellent for paranormal investigation.

When using UVA Illumination we advise that suitable precaution to limit direct exposure to the skin and eyes is taken.

UVB and UVC light should only be used if you have a full understanding of the risk of using such light sources and the precautions that should be taken, i.e UV Blocking sunscreen and UV eye protection.

While we dont hold Quartz Lenses, UV Filters and Illuination in stock.  We prefer customers that are looking to buy these items contact or call us so that we can run through the ins and outs of UV and advise the precautions that should be taken.

LIVEVIEW MODE – COMPOSE IMAGES IN REAL TIME

SHORT EXPOSURES – NO TRIPOD NEEDED HERE! THE CAMERA IS CAPABLE OF ACHIVING IR IMAGES, HANDHELD.  YES, HANDHELD!

RAW IMAGE MODE

ELECTRONIC VIEWFINDER (EVF) – GREAT WHEN OUTDOOR IN BRIGHT CONDITION, OR YOU CAN USE THE EVF AND TURN THE LCD PANEL OFF IF YOU NEED TO WORK CONVERTLY AT NIGHT WHEN USING INFRARED ILLUMINATION

THIS CAMERA HAS BEEN MODIFIED AND WILL ONLY CAPTURE NORMAL COLOUR IMAGES IF FITTED WITH A LENS / COLOUR CORRECTING FILTERS SUCH AS A SCHOTT BG39.

THE STANDARD INTERNAL HOT MIRROR FILTER HAS BEEN REPLACED TO ALLOW UV / VISIBILE / INFRARED LIGHT TO PASS, MEANING EXTERNAL FILTERS CAN BE USED TO CONTOL THE WAVELENGTHS OF LIGHT REACHING THE SENSOR. ALL TYPES OF INFRARED IMAGES CAN BE ACHIEVED USING THIS TECHNIQUE. WE ARE HAPPY TO PROVIDE ADVICE TO HELP YOU WITHOUT OBLIGATION.

THIS TYPE OF FILTER IS ALSO THE FIRST CHOICE FOR THOSE WISHING TO CAPTURE NOCTURNAL WILDLIFE LIKE BATS, BADGERS, FOXES AND BEAVERS AS THE CAMERA CAN BE PAIRED WITH INFRARED ILLUMINATION TO ALLOW IT TO SEE IN THE DARK!!! WE STOCK A WIDE RANGE OF IR ILLUMINATORS,  YOU WILL FIND THESEE AMONGST OUR OTHER ITEMS.

THIS FILTER IS ALSO PREFERRED BY PARANORMAL INVESTIGATORS AS IT ALLOWS THE USER TO YEILD AS MUCH POTENTIAL LIGHT AS POSSIBLE, EXTENDING THE POTENTIAL FOR DOCUMENTING EVIDENCE. IF USING THE CAMERA IN COMPLETE DARKNESS INFRARED ILLUMINATION WILL BE REQUIRED.

We would be delighted to help if you have any questions regarding this camera and how it can be used to get the best out of it either for Infrared Photography or For Filming Wildlife / Ghost Hunting in Complete Darkness.

The following is a brief description of the cameras capabilities…

USING FOR INFRARED PHOTOGRAPHY / NOCTURNAL WILDLIFE / GHOST HUNTING!
Full Spectrum Conversion offer far more flexibility than Fixed Infrared Filters as once they are converted they allow the user to fit infrared filters to the lens thread to achieve all types of infrared photography.  Contrary to popular belief, Liveview and short exposures are maintained when external filters are fitted to this type of conversion



These styles include Super Blue 470nm, Goldie 550nm, Faux Colour / Red Blue Channel Swapping 670nm, Monochrome 720nm, Deep Contrast/ Saturation 850nm, Faux Xray Effect 1000nm (possible to see through certain fabrics etc)

They can also be used without any filters for achieving Nightvision or Full Spectrum Photography.

Unlike a standard camera, external filters can be fitted to this camera without the need for long exposures or the need for a tripod.

The Camera can be used in normal daylight but as it will yield infrared and ultraviolet some colours take on a different appearance to how our eyes see them. We can list additional filters on request that can be fitted to the lens that correct this so that you can use the camera as a normal DSLR for everyday use!!!!

Instant Infrared Images, They even appear so that you can compose infrared images in LIVE VIEW!!

Likewise you can see Infrared Illumination and use the LCD or EVF to see images in the dark

Our Infrared Illuminators can be used with this Camera at night to record still images and movies in pitch black darkness.

Thanks for looking.  If you need any help, please feel free to get in touch
