XNiteLumixGX1HR    Visible Hot Rod




We stock and can modify this camera to be IR+Visible, High-Red, IR-Only or Visible Hot Rod (lens not included).  

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.

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.

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.

Please note that this is a DLSR camera that does not include a lens
