Why Stock Photos?
The short answer is that we use stock photos on some listings to save us time and to save you money. The longer answer is that we love to take photos of each and every lens, camera, and accessory, but doing so takes a lot of time and makes it difficult to get everything listed. So, we decided to compromise: take gorgeous photos of some things and charge a little more for them, and use stock photos for other items and charge a little less for those, all else equal.
The items listed here were tested thoroughly by our trained technicians. If they observed any significant flaws, you’ll see them detailed above. If the items listed here are exceptionally awesome, you’ll see that noted above too. Regardless, please remember this is a used item and it’s bound to have at least a microscopic imperfection.
If you're interested in purchasing an item with specific photos and ratings, we don’t blame you one bit. Please visit one of our Exposed! listings (if available), usually marked with a green badge. If none are currently available, by all means, contact us.

The Sony Alpha a7S IR Modified 720nm Camera
This is a Sony Alpha a7S modified with an internal 720nm infrared filter. It doesn’t take regular images! Key features include:
Overview. We’ve had this Sony Alpha a7S modified for IR photography by the good people at Kolari Vision. The low-pass filter was removed and replaced with an internal 720nm infrared filter. Instead of capturing three different colors of visible light, the camera now sees three different wavelengths in the near-infrared spectrum.
E-mount. Sony has created its line of FE lenses for the a7 series. These full-frame lenses use the E-mount, but provide a larger image circle for covering the full-frame sensor. The existing APS-C E-mount lenses are compatible with the full-frame a7-series; however, you’ll have to shoot in crop-frame mode or accept any vignetting caused by the smaller image circle.
Normal Use. You use an IR-modified camera just as you would a normal camera: autofocus works, live view works, and in-camera metering works. Exposure times are similar to a normal camera when shooting in sunny conditions where IR light is abundant. Try to shoot under indoor artificial lighting (not really any IR light there) and you’re going to need a tripod. Note: you may see front or back-focusing using autofocus under some lighting conditions.This Thing is Different. For those of you who aren’t familiar with IR photography, the look is very different. You’ll want to read up on shooting in IR and the post-processing required for the images.
Are we out of stock?If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.
We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.
On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.
In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.
If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
