I purchased this little camera to see if I really would like to try and have my mirrorless camera converted. I did find out that the best ISO to shoot with this camera is 100. Anything above that and the photo is noisy. That said, I’ve taken some incredible shots with it. The camera has a hack in it to shoot DNG files, I discovered that by accident. I have found it easier to shoot jpeg [naughty me!] and get some fantastic results as I don’t own Adobe Lightroom. However I found good work arounds with ON1. In the DNG mode there seems to be quite a bit of lens distortion and dark edges.
This little camera goes with me everywhere now on any bright day and some very gloomy ones. I absolutely love the 665nm filter, but will experiment with the 850nm more. I purchased this in March and have taken about 200 shots so far.
I strongly suggest looking up tutorials and articles.
The only thing I would like to see is some sort of container to carry these little filters in. I don’t like carrying them loose and unprotected so I normally take one filter and leave the rest safely tucked in the box with foam that they came in.

I’m a hobby & semi- professional photographer. I’m retired & have always had an interest in IR photography. I’m not all that computer literate. I purchased the already converted Canon ELPH 180. I also purchased the CHDK SD card. Long story short I had difficulties with the CHDK installation. I emailed, received great response. I then called I spoke with William. What a patient understanding & informative guy. His patience & understanding got me through the installation without a hitch. It’s Great to deal with a company that has great representatives. Thank You!

Great little camera with just the right filters. So I’m always ready for IR shots, even if I don’t have my usual equipment with me. Kolari is always my first address when it comes to infrared.

I’m a photo amateur from Italy. I use from a couple of months this tiny full spectrum camera and I think its fantastic : it s always in my bike jacket during mi rides and I ever miss an IR shots. Yes it isnt like my large D800 Full Frame camera, but when you need it, its always with me. Thanks Kolari

I give this business 5 stars due to the responsiveness of there customer service, when I got in contact with them to check in on my order they kept responding to me everyday after till I got my camera set, I bought a Kolari Pocket Full Spectrum Camera mind you, also of note nothing came damaged at all, as everything came packed in a decent amount of foam and padding even in the delivery box I am quite happy with their service and if I ever intend to upgrade my camera set from that, I will definitely use their service again.

A wonderful small camera that can easily get into a pocket to be ready any time you need. The raw files are good, the building quality is ok. It can be a good start for those who wish to move later to a full spectrum dslr. Teams at Kolari are very good, nice people who love what they do.
