Sony A7S Kit For Bat Survey
Survey guidelines for bat ecologists now recommend the use of infrared video or other appropriate optical tools to improve the effectiveness of bat surveys.
Many ecologists chose camcorders but Adrian Bicker has pioneered the use of converted Sony A7s cameras on bat surveys, benefitting from the camera's legendary low light performance and large sensor to take infrared video to the next level. This was described in Adrian's "Taking Infrared Video to the Max" workshop at the National Bat Conference 2023.
We have co-designed a Sony A7s camera kit, ready for use on bat surveys.
You need to add lenses and the infrared lamps that illuminate the subject. Large aperture Sony prime lenses are ideal (not zooms).
The kit includes
Used 720nm infrared-converted Sony A7S camera with Sony Battery, Body Cap and Charger.
Used Sony Battery Grip and extra Sony battery.
The equipment supplied is the same as Adrian's and has been refined, tried and tested over many years.
The settings are as recommended by Adrian and the 30min recording limit removed by the installation of the Open Memories App.
These kits are made to order, so please allow approx. 10-14 days for delivery from when the order is placed.
These kits vary from Approx. £1200 to £1300 depending on condition of the Body and Grip. They are supplied with serviceable but used Sony batteries, there is an option to upgrade to 2 Brand New Sony Batteries [+£100] which will ensure the maximum recording time.
