Nervous about taking the risk of modifying your camera yourself?
Can't be bothered with the time consuming and delicate procedure?
Don't want to pay out costly sums for a IR/UV filter change or removal?
No worries, we will mod your Canon/Nikon DSLR for you, leaving you with peace of mind and an excellent astrophotography camera in its place.
We do work on the following DSLR models
10D/20D/30D/40D/50D,60D 300D/350D/400D/1000D/1100D/450D/500D/550D/600D - filter removal
With the filter removal, the cameras autofocus will be close but not 100%. For astrophotography this is not important.
However, if after the filter removal, you wish to use the camera for daytime shooting and wish for the colour balance to be corrected , you can use any number of colour correction filters that are available, for example a X-Nite CC1 type filter available from http://www.maxmax.com/aXNiteFilters.htm , the Astronomik OWB filter or set a CWB balance on the camera to compensate.
The filter removal will leave
your camera with improved spectral absorption capable of vastly increased
H-alpha and red response (up to 98%), up to 5 times the standard
filter, which is particularly useful for
capturing images of those faint but stunning emission nebula. Daytime
photography will work with a custom white balance set on the camera. The
autofocus will not work, only manual mode.
A filter change, requires a new high-quality Baader ( ACF I, II or III / BCF ) filter to be put in place of the standard filter, which will still allow daytime photography and auto focusing.
*Turnaround time approx. 3-5 working days, so you can get your camera back within a week, no need for lengthy waits.
**Our promise to clients
is to return your camera in same working condition as it was sent, or
send you a replacement camera of same
model with the required removal/change work carried out.
*** This includes special next day insured delivery to your doorstep.
