Quick Overview

The Nikon Z5 Full Spectrum mirrorless camera allows you to capture astronomical, infrared, ultra-violet, and traditional photography all with one camera! This camera is based on Nikon Z5 model but the standard internal filter is replaced by with a clear filter that is transparent to visible, UV and IR light! This allows the Nikon Z5 Full Spectrum mirrorless camera to have a higher sensitivity in red part of visible spectrum, where the important H-alpha line lies, allowing you to capture weaker details of deep sky objects. This sensitivity extends to the IR and UV parts of the spectrum and the autofocus sensor has been recalibrated after filter change so the autofocus behaves the same as a standard camera and allows you to make UV and IR photography in a very simple way! 4 YEARS OFFICIAL WARRANTY (Nikon Italy)!

Nikon Z5 Full Spectrum: the perfect camera both for astrophotography and UV-IR photography

Nikon Z5 Full Spectrum is the mirrorless camera with a full frame sensor (24x36mm) that, thanks to the improved sensitivity in H-alpha and increased range in spectrum, is now a wonderful solution for astronomical and UV-IR photography! This mirrorless camera offers many advantages over a standard DSLR camera. It has a large full frame sensor (measuring 24x36mm, 24MP resolution, with large 6 micron pixels) that is only 16mm from the bayonet, this way it allows you to achieve focus more easily on different types of telescopes. The Nikon Z bayonet offers a wide 55mm free opening to avoid vignetting even with fast focal ratios. By adding the optional "Baader filter changer UFC for Nikon Z" you can easily use a 2" filter in front of the sensor (for example a light pollution filter) and have the sensor 55mm from the front thread for telescope connections, often requested from different type of optical correctors.

Nikon Z5 Full Spectrum camera uses a very large 24x36mm sensor with 6 microns pixel and the wide Nikon Z bayonet to avoid vignetting.

In the Nikon Z5 Full Spectrum camera sensor is placed just 16mm from the front bayonet, this makes easy to reach focus with all telescopes.

Improved sensitivity in H-alpha

In order to have correct color balance in the daytime photographs, DSLR and mirrorless cameras use a filter, placed in front of the sensor, that is not completely transparent, especially at longer wavelengths corresponding to red. In astronomy applications this is a problem because the most important emission line, H-alpha (emitted by many nebulae for example) lies in the red part of the spectrum. Nikon Z5 Full Spectrum mirrorless camera uses a clear filter that replaces the standard one in front of the sensor that increases sensitivity at the H-alpha line and entire red part of the spectrum. That's why, by comparing an astrophotography image recorded by the Nikon Z5 Full Spectrum with the same model but unmodified (recorded with the same telescope and the same exposition time), you can see that the Full Spectrum camera is able to show weaker details. Tip: Since not all telescopes are corrected in infrared and ultraviolet, for astrophotography you can use the Nikon Z5 Full Spectrum together with a UV-IR Cut filter.

Nikon Z5 Full Spectrum camera uses a special clear filter (in front of the sensor) instead of the standard one for an increased sensitivity of the red part of the spectrum and, in particular, of the important H-alpha line.

Performance comparison of the Nikon Z5 Full Spectrum camera with the unmodified Nikon Z5: the Full Spectrum camera is able to record weaker nebulas. Both pictures are 90 seconds exposition time, with the same telescope (90mm apocromatic refractor), same camera settings and in the same moment.

The perfect camera for Infrared and Ultraviolet photography:

The Nikon Z5 Full Spectrum mirrorless camera extends the sensitivity of Z5 camera to the infrared and ultraviolet parts of the spectrum. Usually, when you change the filter inside the camera, you lose proper autofocus operation because even if the filter is made of the same thickness than the original, some infinitesimal differences remain. Nikon Z5 Full Spectrum mirrorless camera is instead recalibrated after filter replacement, allowing autofocus to work perfectly with Nikon lenses! In order to make infrared or ultraviolet images, you can use IR-pass or UV-pass filters (not included with this camera) to be threaded in front of the lens you are using. Please note that most of the photo lenses allow IR light to pass allowing you to use any lens for IR photography, but most of these lenses cut off UV light. In order to use this Nikon Z5 Full Spectrum camera in UB, you will have to use a UV-pass filter in addition to a special lens that built for UV imaging. By adding an UV/IR-cut filter in front of your lens, this camera can be used for standard photography (filter not included, it may require to color recalibration with image processing software).

By adding IR-pass filter in front a photo lens with the Nikon Z5 Full Spectrum camera, you can record great IR images. This comparison shows the same image recorded with the Nikon Z5 Full Spectrum camera (left) and with a standard Z5 camera (right).
