Annotation:
All prices are gross prices, i.e. including 19% German VAT! The shipping fee for Germany is 7.90 euros with DHL and 19.90 euros for the rest of the European Union with DHL. Other countries on request. Shipping to packing stations is possible within Germany at no extra charge!

Unfortunately, shipping to Switzerland is not possible. But since we are located near the border (approx. 15km) to Switzerland, you can bring your camera over personally by arrangement and we will do your job within a very short time.

 

Cost for astromodification WITHOUT filter:
The standard conversion for all newer DSLRs. The advantage: The newer models no longer need an astronomical filter, as the original filter units consist of several parts and only partially have to be converted for more red sensitivity. With this modification, an H-alpha sensitivity of approx. 80-85% is achieved.
All prices include the costs for the conversion work and the focus adjustment to the delivery condition. The sensor cleaning function and Liveview are retained!

Prices including VAT:
EOS 400D, 450D, 500D, 550D, 1000D, 1100D, 1200D, 1300D: 160 euros
EOS 7D, 7D Mk. II, 77D, 40D, 50D, 60D, 70D, 77D, 80D, 100D, 600D, 650D, 700D, 750D, 760D: 170 euros
EOS M, M3: 170 euros
EOS 5D Mark II, 6D: 260 euros
all prices plus shipping costs (7.90 euros within DE, 19.90 euros within EU).

 

Costs for astromodification SPECIAL:
The special conversion for almost all of the above models. Only available in this way from us! The advantage: an even higher H-alpha sensitivity to 98%. However, the sensor cleaning function is omitted. The increased sensitivity is achieved by replacing the original IR / UV blocking filter. This conversion is more powerful than a conversion with a BCF filter and represents the maximum possible with an astronomical conversion.
All prices include the costs for the conversion work, the special astro filter and the focus adjustment to the delivery status. The sensor cleaning function is no longer necessary, Liveview is retained!

Prices including VAT:
EOS 400D, 450D, 500D, 550D, 1000D, 1100D, 1200D, 1300D: 260 euros

EOS M, M3: 270 euros
EOS 5D Mark II, 6D: 395 euros
all prices plus shipping costs (7.90 euros within DE, 19.90 euros within EU).

 

Cost for astromodification WITH filter:
The standard conversion for older DSLR models without sensor cleaning function or for all Nikon cameras. The correctly functioning autofocus is retained. With this modification, an H-alpha sensitivity of 98% is achieved.
All prices include the cost of the renovation work and the astro filter.

Prices including VAT:
EOS 10D, 20D, 30D, 300D, 350D: 245 euros

Nikon D600, D610, D750, D800, D800E: 330 euros
all prices plus shipping costs.

Note: The newer DSLRs with sensor cleaning are only available with filters on request. Of course you can send us an astrofilter corresponding to the camera model; the prices of the infrared modification then apply to you. An event. existing sensor cleaning function remains available.

 

Costs for modification with neutral glass (clear glass):
Interesting especially for infrared photography. Allows the IR photographer to use different IR pass filters as lens screw filters or clip filters in the camera. The camera is sensitive from UV through visible light to deeper IR and can therefore be used universally with the appropriate screw-type lens filters.
All prices include the cost of the renovation work and the clear glass. The autofocus is adjusted to daylight. The sensor cleaning function and live view are retained!

Costs for infrared modifications WITHOUT filter:
This conversion method is only of interest for "laboratory conditions", as the removal of all built-in filters means that the focal position is shifted to such an extent that when taking pictures with a focus towards infinity (e.g. landscape pictures) with the vast majority of lenses, it is no longer possible to get into focus. With the conversion with neutral glass (clear glass conversion) this problem can be avoided. This conversion can also be of interest to astrophotographers if they want to use their own IR / UV blocking filter in front of the camera.

Only on request.

 

Guarantee claims:
Since we are extremely convinced of our camera modifications in terms of workmanship and quality and not only offer an excellent price / performance ratio, we offer generous guarantees of up to 5 years on our work - and at no extra charge:
- You will receive your camera back fully functional and professionally modified, if it was already before the modification.
- 3 year guarantee against negative effects on the image quality by the internal filter surfaces (i.e. blindness of the glass, new dust inclusions, stress cracks in the glass, etc.).
- 3-year guarantee on full electronic functionality of the plug-in connections and soldering points removed for the conversion (including sensor cleaning if available).
- 5 year guarantee on the stability of our focus correction per flange focal length (only for astromodification without filter).
- 5-year guarantee on the tight fit of installed filters (all modifications)

It is important to mention: All warranty claims are only valid if the DSLRs modified by us are used properly and appropriately!
