Canon EOS Rebel XS (a.k.a. 1000D) SLR Digital Camera Kit (Black) with 18-55mm IS Lens

Note:  This includes a 18-55mm lens.

The Canon 1000D / XS is a semi-professional digital SLR camera.  Because of the nature of the IR enabling modification, we do not recommend this camera to anyone who does not fully understand the implications of the modification.

We can modify this camera to be IR+Visible+UV, High-Red, IR-Only, High Resolution (HR) and UV-Only.

bulletIR+Visible+UV: Camera seee everything the sensor is cable of seeing.  Camera will see some UV, the entire visible range and infrared from 715nm to 1200nm.
bulletHigh-Red

665nm: Camera will see from 665nm to 1200nm.  Red channel will see visible red and infrared.  Blue and green channels will only see infrared.

590nm: Camera will see from 590nm to 1200nm.  Red channel will see visible red and infrared.  Green channel will see come visible green and infrared.  Blue channel will only see infrared.

bulletIR-Only

715nm:  All channels  only see infrared.  The red channel is the most open to the IR and contains somewhat different information than the blue and green channels allowing for some creative color effects such as red-blue channel swapping to get deep blue skies.  A 715nm converted camera sees about the same amount of light as a stock camera so apertures and shutter are similar to a stock camera.  715nm is similar to a Hoya RM72 or Wratten 89B.

830nm:  All channels only see infrared.  Camera loses about 2 stops of exposure.  Once you equalize color levels, picture will be almost completely black and white.  The infrared effect is more intense at 830nm - skies are darker, clouds whiter and you see further through smoke and haze.  

bulletUV Only:: Camera will only see UV light.  We recommend focusing using the Live View feature.  A lens such as the Jenoptik 60mm APO lens works well with this conversion.
bulletHR (High Resolution/ Hot Rod).  An HR camera has the Anti-Aliasing (Blur) filter removed and replaced with a thicker IR Cut Filter to keep the same focal plane.  A Visible HR camera will maximize the resolution and color depth of the camera at the expense of possible moire pattens.  Please see more about this conversion here.

The Canon 1000D or XS has a nice feature called Live View with the ability to switch the Auto Focus (AF) mode from the normal AF sensor in the base of the camera to an AF mode using the image sensor itself - similar to the way a camcorder or point and shoot camera works.  This is particularly interesting on these modified cameras because it means that you can put a UV or IR filter that blocks visible light from the camera and still use the camera to AF.  You can also use the Live  View feature to manually focus when using filters that block visible light.  

Please note that the anti-dust system is disabled on our conversions.  Live View will work correctly.

Modification will void your warranty.
