My task was to adapt an aluminium enclosure to contain the camera sensor and the control keypad:
A special nut to attach the body to a tripod was also added.
Thanks to its C-Mount adapter (common in surveillance CCTV cameras) I can use any lens in the market using this mount type, and with the proper adapter, any kind of lens (e.g. Nikon F-Mount, Canon EF-Mount, T-Mount, etc). For example this F1.2 6mm lens was bundled with the camera, and uses the same C-Mount:
On an SLR. a F1.2 lens is typically on the expensive side. In this small format, these lenses normally don't get past the two figures.
In my setup I have used a T-Mount to C-Mount adaptor in order to fit my Samyang F6.3 500 mm catadioptric lens into this camera:
The sensor has good IR sensitivity in night mode. If I wanted to go further in dropping all of the IR filtering I would probably have to remove the coating on the sensor window, operation which would probably ruin it.
