After the infrared modification there would no longer be a need for external IR filters and exposure times are much shorter, see our home page for a thorough explanation. We are actively adding more IR DIY tutorials almost on a daily basis, if you don’t see one for your camera then check back soon.
Infrared filter thickness differences
This video is from our Issues & Solutions page but we wanted to include it here as it may settle some IR filter questions you may have when doing your DIY camera surgery. It explains the popular myth that in order for a IR converted camera to focus correctly one needs to replace the hot mirror filter with an IR filter of the same thickness. This is simply not true as the video explains.
Attention: Please understand that these tutorials are designed for informational/educational purposes only. DO NOT attempt this process yourself, there are just too many things that can go wrong and can result in a broken camera or worse, injury/death from electrocution due to the high voltage flash capacitor.
Do yourself a favor and order a conversion from us instead. We do this all day, every day and have done so for years and years and have the experience, know how and equipment to do it right the first time, every time. Just read all the positive posts and reviews from our customers all over the world and across the web. So go ahead, look over the IR tutorials but when it’s time for the actual conversion, be smart and order from us.
