This Is the Best Time to Get Into Infrared Cameras! Here Are 3 Great Ones!

It’s always super fun to use infrared cameras, and right now is the best time to get one!

If you’ve been taking long hikes to get away from it all, infrared cameras might be for you. They deliver a look that you can’t easily get otherwise. The entire way you work with them is much different. So if you’re heading out on a hike, one of these cameras might be great! You’ll be able to get that surreal, ethereal look that is otherwise just not possible. We delved into our reviews index to share reviews of some of our favorite cameras. And luckily, the folks over at KEH have them converted to infrared!

Sony a7: A Perfection Conversion Choice for Mirrorless Camera

In our review, we stated:

As a longtime Sony shooter, the A7’s easily navigable, and the amount of control Sony provides is immensely satisfying. The Fn button provides access to all the essential functions that would be a bit more difficult to find in the dense menu system. This camera’s meant to be used in Manual mode, and it’s designed in such a way that the necessary dials (aperture & shutter speed) are immediately accessible by your right thumb and index finger.

Nikon D810: Details Galore!

camera deals

In our review, we stated:

“When it comes to image quality, the Nikon D810 is surely a beast. For starters, let’s begin with the small stuff: the color rendition of this sensor is different from those of previous Nikon DSLRs. Nikon, Canon, Sony and Fujifilm have colors from their sensors that make you look at an image and know that it came from them. To put this in better perspective, Fujifilm has always been very film-like, Nikon is very vivid but color neutral, Sony leans towards the purple side of the tint scale, while Canon is very warm and saturated. The sensor from this camera tends to lean very heavy towards the blues in great daylight and otherwise color neutral but not as vivid and punchy as other sensors have been. Perhaps Nikon did this to help photographers get an extra boost in their workflow from the start by giving them as much of a neutral slate as possible.”

Pro Tip: Infrared cameras are a different beast. Be sure to bring along a tripod! We’ve interviewed folks who like to get the look of Kodak Aerochrome. Check out our previous interviews with some of these folks.

Nikon D800: Obviously, a Solid Choice

In our review, we stated:

“In conclusion I don’t need to do a conclusion. It should be quite obvious that I am beyond satisfied with the camera. I don’t see another in my future at the moment and consider this an upgrade worth its cost. In many areas there are significant improvements in each aspect of the camera that make the choice simple. Yes there are a few things about the camera that make me frustrated but I have years to become accustomed.”
