Nikon Z6 Mod
« on: Feb 09, 2020, 20:16:53 »
I've gone and done it - modified my Nikon Z6.  It's the easiest camera I've done - just remove the blue filter behind the piezo dust removal filter.





It can still be used for daytime photography, with a custom colour balance.  Here are some spectra showing the effects of the filters:



The bluish filter that needs to be removed is Filter2 in the above plot.

You are so clever Mark.

So is this camera going to be used instead of the A7S or in addition to?
If the latter what are your plans for it.

I'm keeping both. The big pixels of the A7S are very well suited to the C11.  The smaller pixels of the Z6 are ideal for the Tak Epsilon.

What fun, I love losing those little screws, it's so nice when you find them again! Not. This camera should turn out some stonking images if the clouds ever clear.

Boo

I just love the blue tac on the paper with those screws.

Never, ever, argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
If you argue with an idiot, there are two idiots.
