CONVERSION TYPE *

Hotspot Reducing AR Coating

Description

  • Brand new camera with original accessories, has been taken out of the box to convert.

    The Sony A7 II 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. Now for the first time, the A7 II 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 A7 II.

    Cameras are made to order, allow up to a week for order shipment.

    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.

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 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. The coating does not reduce optical performance in any way and is highly recommended.

Background:

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 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.
