Brand new camera with original accessories, has been taken out of the box to convert.
The Sony A7R III combines the versatility of a mirrorless camera with a full frame sensor and a short flange distance, allowing it to be used in combination with any full frame lens with the appropriate adapter. Available here converted to infrared or upgraded to our thin filter for sharper regular shooting. The A7R III modification allows good corner to corner sharpness with film and rangefinder lenses with an in body stabilization. We are also able to maintain the dust reduction system in the A7R III .
WARNING: This camera contains an internal diagnostic IR Led. This can cause light leaks when using very long exposures and high ISOs in the H-alpha and IR enabled conversions, in the range of 30 second exposures at 6,400 ISO.
Cameras are made to order, allow up to two weeks for order shipment

Our standard turnaround time for camera conversions is 2 weeks on average for most models. This is only an estimate and not a guarantee. Our standard turnaround time may occasionally exceed 2 weeks during our busy season (April-August) or take less than 2 weeks in our off-season (September-March).
We also offer 5-day and 1-2 day rush processing options on our camera conversions for an additional fee.

What is the AR coating and what does it do? The AR coating option adds an IR centered anti-reflective coating onto the IR filter we install when we perform an infrared conversion. It reduces hotspot artifacts that some lenses are prone to, and can reduce other stray reflections. On our full spectrum conversions we apply a broadband AR coating that covers the UV, visible, and IR ranges. The coating does not reduce optical performance in any way and is highly recommended.
Uncoated glass has a reflection of around 4-5% at all wavelengths, and we found that this reflection off the sensor filter was bouncing off the glass and reflecting back from the lens housing and aperture blades to cause IR hotspots. We developed this anti-reflective coating that is centered around the IR wavelengths that cause hotspots, and reduced the 5% reflection down to <0.5%
Conversion AR Coating
When applied to our internal conversion filters, we find that hotspots are significantly reduced during infrared photography. Below is a sample from a Nikon 50mm 1.8 which has a strong hotspot at small apertures. Independent tests also available from Mark Hilliard here and Edd Noble here.
