A large offer of camera conversions...
Kolari Vision offers a large range of camera conversions, including several brands and camera models. Different conversions can be chosen :
Full-spectrum conversion: camera sensor is now sensitive to infrared and ultraviolet lights thanks to the replacement of its initial filter by a clear one. This conversion requires the use of infrared lens filters.
Infrared conversion: camera sensor is now sensitive to infrared thanks to the replacement of its initial filter by an infrared one. This conversion does not require the use of infrared lens filters.
Astrophotography conversion: camera sensor is now sensitive to specific light rays allowing to take pictures of the deep sky.
Each camera conversion requires to send the corresponding camera to Kolari Vision. Recently this company has launched an EU partner to offer duty free conversions for European customers.
... Or already converted cameras!
Kolari Vision also offers already converted cameras : these brand new cameras have just been taken out of their boxes to be converted. All the initial accessories are included. This offer reduces the delivery delay and assure you to use a fully functional camera.
Infrared lens filters developed by Kolari Vision
In my opinion, one of the strong points of Kolari Vision is the offer of their own infrared lens filters. Indeed, Kolari Vision designs and develops a full range of infrared lens filters, from 590nm to 850nm and including hot mirror lens filters.
In addition to these filters, Kolari Vision has recently launched a new ultraviolet bandpass transmission lens filter.
