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 –
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.
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.
