Please note: we carry two types of IR modified D700s. This is the 715 nm conversion.
We have had this D700 modified for IR photography by MaxMax. They removed the low-pass filter, and replaced it with an internal 715nm infrared filter. Instead of capturing three different colors of visible light, the camera now sees three different wavelengths in the near-infrared spectrum.
Unlike IR filters, you can use an IR-modified camera just as you would a normal SLR: autofocus works, live view works, and in-camera metering works. Exposure times are as short as you would have shooting the camera normally—often even a little shorter, since current sensor designs seem to be more sensitive to IR light.
For those of you who are not familiar with IR photography, the look is very different: you’ll want to read up on shooting in IR and the post-processing required for the images.
Please note, the modification disables the automatic sensor cleaning function so the camera may report to an error when powering up if you set it to clean the sensor when starting up. Ignore this, it will work just fine.
