The Canon 600D / T3i 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.
|IR+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.|
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.
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.
|UV 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.|
|HR (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.|
|B&W. Sensor is converted to a monochrome
or panchromatic sensor. Additional options available such as HR,
IR-Only, etc. Please see more

The Canon 600D or T3i 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.
We can modify your Canon 600D for UV+VIS+IR, High Red 590nm,
High Red 665nm, IR-Only 715nm,
IR-Only 830 or HR for a $450 fee + return shipping & handling ($20
for UPS ground insured within continental USA)..
We can modify your Canon 600D for UV-Only for an $800 fee +
We do not perform B&W modifications on any customer
cameras because of the risk during conversion.
