SKU: N/A Category:


This modification removes the UV/IR blocking filter ( Hotmirror ) from your camera and replaces it with a neutral filter. With this modification the maximum sensitivity of the camera sensor for UV radiation, for visible light and for infrared radiation is guaranteed. The sensitivity of the sensor starts (depending on the model) at approx. 300-320 nm and ends at 1,100-1,200 nm.

After conversion, the camera is suitable for all forensic examinations. This includes building forensic examinations, forensic medical examinations or even art restoration techniques. For a useful application, however, suitable spectral filters (long-pass, short-pass or band-pass filters) and, if necessary, special light sources are always required. A sophisticated and widely tested filter set for building forensics is distributed by Prof. Andreas O. Rapp -> available here.


Attention: You must always activate LiveView with a converted DSLR camera as soon as you use a filter on the camera. Without LiveView, the camera cannot focus properly. Mirrorless cameras from the EOS M and EOS R series do not have this limitation and work much better as a forensic camera.

Note: The automatic sensor cleaning function is lost with this cameras: 7D, 7D II, 50D, 60D, 70D, 77D, 80D, 500D, 550D, 600D, 650D, 700D, 750D, EOS M, EOS M2, EOS M6, EOS M10, EOS M100, EOS R, EOS R6, EOS RP. After the conversion, the sensor can be cleaned as usual dry with compressed air or wet with all preparations.

Attention: With the conversion, the sensor cleaning function is lost and *MUST NOT* be switched on again. If Sensor Cleaning is set as a startup action it can cause the camera to fail starting up. I turn it off in the menu, but cannot hide this option. Please be aware that this can irreversibly damage the camera if sensor cleaning is set as a startup action.


After receiving the camera, I will modify it within 14 days. Faster turnaround times of max. 7 or max. 3 days are possible on request. After successful conversion, I will issue you the invoice and send the camera back immediately.

The shipment will be made as an insured DHL parcel (14 and 7 days processing time) or as a DHL Express shipment with delivery on the next business day (if you choose 3 days processing time, only available within Germany).

Note: I have no influence on the time DHL needs for delivery. The delivery time must always be added to the processing time.
