Canon SX210 Kodak Aerochrome Infrared Camera
The camera is refurbished and has been converted to replicate similar images to that achieved by ‘Kodak Aerochrome’ film.
Kodak Aerochrome is an old film that was developed for government surveillance. The film was sensitive to the entire spectrum of light in the same way as standard film, with the difference that its sensitivity extended beyond 720nm into near infrared. Aerochrome and other infrared films are more sensitive to blue light, so to achieve a true IR effect it was preferred to yellow/orange filter. To mimic this effect we have have removed the hot mirror from the camera and carefully replaced it using a a suitable filter that creates the ‘Aerochrome’ effect.
The images in the gallery are straight from the camera, notice the green grass has turn pink, whilst the pigmentation of the skin stays the same.
Whilst the camera provides some very pleasing results, simple post processing steps can be taken to further enhance the effects.
All we have done is added the old style ‘Aerochrome’ frame around the images to add effect.
The SX210 is an excellent, well built camera with quality optics, which is superior compared to many other camera in the same price bracket.
You won’t be disappointed, this device is one of our best sellers and is true value for money.
