Modified Canon PowerShot SX50-IS 12.1 MegaPixel Camera
Our modified Canon PowerShot SX50-IS can see from about 340nm to 1100nm.
The Canon SX50 does not have a very good filter ring lens mount. For the UV+Visible+IR cameras, e add a stepping metal stepping ring adapter to the lens so that you can mount 58mm filters. Because of this, the stock lens cover does not fit. We include a new 58mm lens cap.
The UV+Visible+IR camera uses 58mm filters which are available here. Note, you should use the XNiteCC1 filter to block infrared light when you want to take a normal picture. For infrared pictures, you have many options. If you are just starting, we recommend at least one high cut filter (like a 1000nm or XDP) and one low cut filter (like a 715nm) because they have very different looks.
Because the camera uses an Electonic Viewfinder (EVF), all the focusing is done through the image sensor and you will see the UV, visible or infrared image before you take the picture.
We can convert your PowerShot SX50-IS for $275 for UV+IR+Visible and $375 for IR-Only + return S&H ($20 UPS ground insured domestic USA). Turn around is usually 1 or 2 days from receipt.
This camera uses 58mm Filters available Here. For normal photographs, you should order an XNiteCC1 filter. For UV photographs, you can use our XNite330 or XNiteUVR. We recommend stacking our XNiteBP1 filter to block the small infrared transmission bump that all UV filters have.
