Full Frame UV Camera, UV Lens and UV Pass Filter Outfit
This is a full kit for UV photography consisting of a Full Spectrum Converted Sony A7S, with a UV Capable 35mm f/3.5 M42 Mount lens Kit with Macro Helicoid Mount, Stepping Ring plus Remounted 49mm Baader U Filter. These are used 1960's era lenses that just happen to be remarkably good in UV, although they are often well used, they are all cleaned and tested.
The Baader U Venus filter included in this kit is the best UV pass filter available, this specially adapted 49mm Baader U 365nm UV passing filter is the latest version, which appears to produce more intense colour than the old and does not seem to require to be reversed for photography. The filter passes only a band of UV from approx 320nm upto 380nm with a peak at 350nm, it has special coating that almost completely supresses any IR. In comparison to the two filter combinations [UG11+BG39], the Baader U lets about double the amount of UV through, which allows hand held UV photography albeit at quite high ISO's. This Re-mounted Version is a Baader U filter just remounted in a plain 49mm Mount, please note the new version appears Bluish on the front surface and yellowish on the rear as shown in the photos of the remounted version on a UV Capable 35mm f/3.5 lens here.
This complete outfit consisting of a Full Spectrum Converted Sony A7S, UV Capable lens kit with the Baader U filter and a UV/IR Cut Filter will combine to produce excellent UV photography, both still and video, but also normal colour for comparison using the included UV/IR Filter instead of the Baader U. The Full Spectrum Sony A7S camera included in this kit is the ideal camera for high iso work in stills and especially video in UV. The kit is ideal for video of sunscreen application especially with the optional Sony 30mm Macro lens, which although not as UV transmissive as the 35mm f/3.5 UV capable lens, does offer the ease of complete auto focus and exposure even in UV. Please note the Sony 30mm Macro will use the APS-c Crop mode rather than full frame. Use the drop down menu to select the lens required.
