Contact the location you’ll be bringing the return package to in advance to find out what the same day cut-off time is. Remember, local pickup spots and ship centers have varied hours!

The H-Alpha Converted Nikon D5500 DSLR Camera allows reds to pass through the sensor freely, unlike with normal DSLR sensors. Without blocking hydrogen alpha wavelengths, the camera has a much higher sensitivity to deep reds with overall less image noise. This camera is ideal for shooting astrophotography and fireworks.

Please note that this camera has a non-removable internal filter conversion. If you want to rent just a regular Nikon D5500, please click here.

We plan to expand to more camera models if these converted cameras prove popular. If you decide you want to have your own camera converted, we recommend doing it through LifePixel.
