Infrared camera converted by LifePixel
My Olympus camera was converted by LifePixel
I did a full spectrum conversion so that I can put a visible filter back on if I wanted to bring the IR as a backup camera. I then use one of these two filters, either of which I cvan also convert to BW.
Filter Band:Hyper Color Infrared (470nm) and Filter Band:Super Color Infrared (590nm)
