Item Description
False color IR Pentax K1 in mint condition. I bought this camera here about 8 months ago and havenít had a chance to use it more than twice. The original owner hardly used it. He had it converted by the guys in Utah Spencerís Camera. Iíve used them twice myself for my Kx and Gh4. The hot mirror is the CLR filter to allow all visible light as well as the IR spectrum up to the 1200nm camera sensors see. $1400 obo. I donít have the box since it was lost in a storage mishap.

When you say the hot filter is the CLR allowing visible and IR do you mean that is how the conversion was done?
I have a full spectrum converted K1 and love it for IR work, the bonus is being able to play in UV thus the question about the hot mirror.

A big plus in IR with Pentax is most of the modern lenses and almost all of the vintage ones don't suffer from IR hotspots.
Tamron, Sigma, Canon, the selection is thinner. (Haven't found a Pentax lens good for UV work yet - too efficient of coatings)

If anyone is serious about trying IR and has a set of Pentax glass, here is a good opportunity.
Remember we have pixel shift.

I’m so sorry for the late response. I want getting my notifications, and I’ve been in the middle of post for a show so I’ve not been back on the forums for a month. What would you like to know about the modification?
