XNiteSonyA6000UVM: Sony A6000 24.0 Megapixel UV-Only Monochrome Camera Body

$2,975.63 each

Note: For use in Sunlight, Hot Filament, Xenon Flash Tube or any light source that emits IR, you should use our XNiteBP1 filter on your lens for additional IR blocking.  Because the camera sensor is very IR sensitive and not very UV sensitive, without the XNiteBP1 filter, you will end up with a lot of IR in the image.
