**Read about the Translucent mirror technology and how it works in infrared here.

 These cameras 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. The A7RII, A7RIII, & A7RIV additionally can have fine horizontal artifacts across the frame in highlighted areas in the IR enabled conversions due to the different sensitivity of some rows of pixels.

Some Sony DSLRs with live view use a second sensor, which still works with visible light after a conversion and does not offer an advantage over the optical viewfinder for infrared. This is not an issue with Sony Mirrorless or Translucent mirror cameras.

This conversion service replaces the cameras internal hot mirror filter with our high quality custom manufactured glass replacement infrared or clear filter. The autofocus systems are calibrated to the 18-55mm kit lens. This calibration results in general focus accuracy for most lenses from 18-300mm. You can also send your own lens to be calibrated to instead at no additional charge. Note, wide angle lenses need a different focus calibration.

Our checkout system is through paypal, but you do not need an account to pay. If you have a time sensitive order, please select “Rush Delivery” as your shipping option to receive first in line service. Leave us a note with your deadline so we can work to meet it.

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. 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%

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.

3 reviews for Sony DSLR, SLT, and Mirrorless Full Spectrum Conversion Service

  1. Jack Croft

    I had a camera converted to full spectrum at Life Pixels in 2017, and have not been satisfied with the results.
    A few months ago, although living on the west coast, I decided to have another camera converted, and this time with KOLARI. I could not be more satisfied, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and more.

  2. Antoine Nobile

    I sent my A7R for a first IR conversion (permanent 590nm filter), and when I got it back, despite an excellent technical work, I was not satisfied with the results I was getting from it. I decided that a full spectrum conversion would fit my needs better and unexpectedly people at Kolari proposed a very generous deal for a 590nm to full spectrum re-conversion, as it is obviously important to them that their clients get satisfying results. This A7R with a full spectrum conversion is absolutely great, I’m very happy with it as well as with the service I got (numerous mail exchanges, short delays for conversion, as well as a technically perfect conversion).

  3. Christian Aguirre

    It really felt like Christmas after getting my camera back and unboxing it. Kolari Vision did an amazing job with my A7S and the process was easy to do and hassle free 😌. Am looking forward to seeing what Kolari Vision does next and test there products out and post them. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
