Learn what’s actually involved in an infrared conversion of digital SLR and point and shoot cameras.
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.
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.
