Processing Time

Our conversion processing time is about 5 business days. Our already converted cameras are made to order, please allow around 5 business days from ordering until they mail out.

AR Coating

What is the AR coating and what does it do? The AR coating option adds an IR centered anti-reflective coating onto the filter we install when we convert the camera. It reduces hotspot artifacts that some lenses are prone to, and can reduce other stray reflections. 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%

Reflectance curve

Conversion AR Coating

When applied to our internal conversion filters, we find that hotspots are significantly reduced. 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.

    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!

    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!

    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!!!!!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 !

    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.
