  1. Joann Newman

    I can’t express enough how grateful I am for the communication and service I received from Kolarivision. I was having trouble with an infrared camera,not being able to use channel swap and achieve the correct picture.After a week or so of emails and sending my pictures to kolarivision it was determined I didn’t have the correct filter installed.I shipped the camera to them on Wednesday and had it corrected and back by the following Wednesday.I would highly recommend them to ANYBODY! I am very pleased.Now I can enjoy my camera!

  2. Darren Goodman

    Just rec’d my lumix dmc-zs8 today. Kolari has been amazing answering all my questions as I am sure I have bugged them over the past week or so. The camera was shipped so fast and I took out of the box and started shooting and looks incredible!! I am excited for this and so happy that Kolari is an amazing company and somewhere I now find as a safe haven for conversions. I will be recommending to all I know and now thinking about getting my dslr converted as well. Thanks Kolari, job well done!

  3. Jonathan Soon

    Well, first of all would like to thank Kolari so answering all my doubts, second, received the camera DMC-FH27 and another thanx to Kolari for making this camera a must buy!!!! One small thing bout this camera was when using flash, the custom white balance is not working… besides that, everything is PERFECT!!! I’d already recommended Kolari to a lot of my friends and hope you can get more business from Malaysians!!! Thanx and keep up the good work!!!!!

  4. Ravi Kiran

    As a novice to IR photography, I got my old Lumix TZ 11 converted. The turnaround time was really quick and the conversion too was very good. I could produce some very good results from my camera. Thank you and highly recommended.

  5. L. Corbett

    Amazing customer service. I had a time constraint and Kolari Vision converted my camera in one day and mailed it out priority so I would get it in time (more than enough time actually). I had a million questions and emails were responded to immediately. Great experience all around. It’s rare to find this level of service in the modern world. Thank you so much!

  6. Eric Steinhart

    I sent my old Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 to Kolari Vision for full spectrum conversion. They did a great job! I’ve been using it to take great infrared pictures with a Hoya R-72 filter. The camera works very well. If you’ve got an old camera you’re not using anymore (especially a point and shoot), send it to Kolari Vision for conversion. I highly recommend their work.

  7. Daniel

    These guy know what they are selling and they answered all my questions with very good 411. Will definitely will be buying the sz7 ir conversion camera. Thank you guys are awesome

  8. Andrew Richardson

    I have bought two IR converted Lumix compacts from Kolari Vision. The first was an FH20, the second an SZ7. Both have been excellent, easy to use, and have produced images which I have been happy to have made into 60*45cm canvasses. Throroughly recommended.

  9. Jeno Horvath

    I found the Kolari Vision while searching the web. Their well planned, informative website convinced me to send my Lumix LX5 for a 850nm conversion.

    Within one week, I received my converted camera. I’m still in the familiarization phase though.

    The focus and auto exposure is right on. I do notice a hotspot on some shots (as Kolari Vision noted I may on my model), but I can correct for it in PS.

    I am completely satisfied with the service I received and will recommend them to my photographer friends.

  10. Carlo Leorini

    Well, it’s the second time (I’m sure it won’t be the last) I asked Kolari Vision to convert my camera. The service is fast, and as usual … the result is excellent. Always excellent. This is surely the better way to take IR pictures. I must thank Kolari Vision for their help and I’m very grateful ! Thank you !

  11. Jen Allan

    Amazing Lumix SZ7 with 850nm conversion. Delighted with results, and Ilija could not be more helpful. Bought mine on eBay and it is a breath of fresh air to find such a good experience on there – especially as I am across the pond in the UK! The camera was beautifully packed and arrived safely. Would not hesitate to have another camera converted at some time.

  12. Noel Canning

    My first experience with IR was in the 1960’s using KODAK IR film. Developing was difficult to say the least. Judging exposure was also a problem.

    I decided that a trial with a Lumix DMC SZ25 with a 720nm filter was something that I could try.

    What a gretl surpise. a small 16 MP camera with a 24mm wide angle lens, Charge the battery , set white balance on a tree in my garden and WOWW…!!! I am seeing shots that I had tried for years on film.

    I find thad bracketing for exposure is helpful.
