Discontinued.  This model has been replaced by the G12


Modified Canon PowerShot G11 10.0 MegaPixel Camera

Model: XNiteCanonG11   Canon PowerShot G11 UV + Visible + IR 

Model: XNiteCanonG11IR   Canon PowerShot G11 IR-Only 

Our modified Canon PowerShot G11  can see from about 340nm to 1100nm. 

The camera uses 58mm filters which are available here.  We include the Canon Lens Hood for attaching the 58mm filters.  Note, you should use the XNiteCC1 filter to block infrared light when you want to take a normal picture.  For infrared pictures, you have many options.  If you are just starting, we recommend at least one high cut filter (like a 1000nm or XDP) and one low cut filter (like a 715nm) because they have very different looks.

Because the camera uses an Electonic Viewfinder (EVF), all the focusing is done through the image sensor and you will see the UV, visible or infrared image before you take the picture.

We can convert your PowerShot G11 for $275 for UV+IR+Visible and $375 for IR-Only + return S&H ($20 UPS ground insured domestic USA).  Turn around is usually 1 or 2 days from receipt.

This camera uses 58mm Filters available Here  but you need an special adapter ring.   For normal photographs, you should order an XNiteCC1 filter.  For UV photographs, you can use our XNite330 or XNiteUVR.  We recommend stacking our XNiteBP1 filter to block the small infrared transmission bump that all UV filters have.
