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.

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.
