Infrared IR Conversion

With this conversion service we will replace the internal hot mirror filter with a high quality custom made infrared glass filter. This will allow your camera to capture infrared light instead of visible light. After IR conversion you won’t need any filters in front of the lens and the camera will be just as sensitive to infrared as it was to visible light. This means you can hand hold and compose normally.

Focus calibration we perform on mirrorless cameras allows the use of all mirrorless camera lenses without any focus issues, just as with stock cameras.

Our most popular infrared filter is the Super Color IR due to its versatility in allowing stunning color and monochrome infrared images but it does require some Photoshop post production.

If you are unsure which IR filter type to choose please be sure to go through the Start Here section. It should give you everything you need but if you find you still have questions please feel free to contact us by phone or email, we are always happy to help.

A complimentary 30 minute one on one live online training session with Dan Wampler is included with all IR and full spectrum conversions. The invitation to book your training session will be emailed to you when we finish the conversion and ship your camera back to you, please be sure to take advantage.

A complimentary 8×12 print – True silver gelatin BW process digital photo printing is available from only a few specialized labs in the world and we’re proud to make them available to you through our partnership with DSI. Your choice of a real silver gelatin black & white DSI Digital Silver Print® or a museum quality inkjet color print printed on Hahnemühle® Photo Pearl paper. Some exclusions apply.

Our 1 year warranty is included on conversion services and installed IR filters.

After you place your order you will receive an email with instructions on how to send us your camera.

Full Spectrum Conversion

With this conversion service we will replace the internal hot mirror filter with a high quality custom made full spectrum glass filter. This will allow your camera to capture UV, IR and visible light all at once. For best results you will need to use our external filters in front of the lens to selectively choose one of the 3 light spectrums.

Ultraviolet UV Conversion

Have us convert your camera to a dedicated ultraviolet only camera. We replace the internal hot mirror filter with our high quality custom manufactured UV band pass filter. After conversion your camera will have much higher UV sensitivity and you will no longer need any UV filters in front of the lens making it easier to compose and focus UV photographs. Another benefit is the ability to shoot using wide angle lenses without the problems normally associated with external UV interference filters.

Great for skin damage analysis, eye wear protection testing, dental, forensic and many other uses.

Our internal UV only filters are the best in the world, are hard coated using magnetron sputtering technology on fused silica substrate and have the best UV transmission and out of band blocking available anywhere. This coating process is very expensive but we managed to keep costs as low as possible by optimizing the fabrication process and lot volume.

Our default calibration lens for UV only Sony Mirrorless is the Coastal Optics 60mm UV-Vis-IR lens but you can use any other lens that can pass readily UV light through the lens.

Our 1 year warranty is included on conversion services and installed UV filters.

Hydrogen Alpha H-Alpha Conversion

Stock cameras have a steep downward curve in the deep reds limiting most of the sensitivity to the hydrogen alpha wavelengths. Have us modify your camera to allow the reds to pass through to the sensor without any blocking of the hydrogen alpha wavelengths. Allowing for much higher sensitivity and thus shorter, less noisy exposures.

Our 1 year warranty is included on conversion services and installed H-Alpha filters.

Anti Aliasing Filter Removal

Capture more detailed images by having us modify your Sony Mirrorless camera by removing the AA Anti-Aliasing filter stack and replacing it with our non-AA replacement filter. This allows you to capture more image detail that would otherwise be blurred internally by the anti-aliasing filter. The main drawbacks are occasional moire patterns in some images and slight WB shift. For more information please visit the Anti-Aliasing Filter Removal blog post.

The dust reduction feature will continue to function normally as the AA filter sits between the dust reduction filter and the sensor.

Our 1 year warranty is included on the conversion service and installed filter replacing the original anti-aliasing filter.

NDVI Camera Conversion

Our NDVI vegetation stress camera conversion service allows your camera to capture blue, green and near-infrared light for use in vegetation stress or health monitoring by hand or UAV drone mapping. We use our own custom NDVI filters with high in-band transmission, strong out of band blocking,  sharp cutoffs and wide angle of incidence characteristics.

Lifepixel-NDVI-Filter

Our 1 year warranty is included on conversion services and installed NDVI filters.

White Balance Tips

When setting a custom white balance with a infrared modified Sony camera you may see a white balance error message. The purpose of this message is to inform you that the colors are out of the normal range expected by the camera. Of course they are, as it’s been converted! The camera still sets the white balance even though it doesn’t like the colors it’s seeing, so just ignore the message.

Also, you may notice that when you set a custom white balance the camera gives you a Kelvin temperature number as well. This number is completely inaccurate so don’t try to take a shortcut by just setting the WB to this Kelvin number – the results will be completely different from a real custom white balance setting.

1 Year Conversion Service Warranty

Warranty-label-product-thumbCompany warrants the conversion service for a period of 1 year from date of conversion order completion.

    I purchased the a6000/18-55 with Super Color IR Filter kit and ordered an expedited shipping option. Just my luck, they had sold the last one. However they moved mountains to get another one in, convert it, and ship it out to me asap. Communications with Daniel were practically realtime!

    Coming from a Canon 6D/24-70 set-up, this thing is practically minuscule! Which means that even with the Rokinon 12mm and Rokinon 8mm lenses, it is a perfect grab and go kit. No hot spots were observed in either lens.

    Setting the white balance under the prevailing lighting condition is a snap. I was told to disregard the in-camera “error” message when setting it. It will say “error” because it’s outside the parameters of “normal”. Just set it, forget it and and get to work.

    I am still learning to “see” the effect and have not quite gotten to the point of actually pre-visualing the end image. But that’s why we practice. Right now, my workflow is using CaptureOne Express for Sony to correct for white balance, then Photoshop to conduct the red/blue channel swap. And playing with a level adjustment layer and black & white adjustment layer to see that effect. Sometimes, I definitely like the B&W image over the color. And sometimes vice versa. So it’s nice to have the choice that the Super Color IR filter offers.

    A quick note if you go with this system, I tried the Sony 10-18 lens, but found the softness in the corners a bit much for a $750 lens. I can live with that in the $330 Rokinon 12mm (in silver) and the $210 Rokinon 8mm.

    I have signed up for my one-on-one online session, and I have a B&W image in mind to take advantage of my free 8×12″ B&W print from DSI. I have not worked with any other company so attentive to their product, their art and their support! Bravo LifePixel!

    The Sony a6000 is a great camera for photography, especially infrared. The camera came from LifePixel ready to go. I made note of their white balance setting and then tried a few of my own. A setting from brownish tiles looked best to me. I have taken some amazing images with the camera. I take it with me when I travel, which is frequently. I am very happy with LifePixel and the camera.
