IRmods performs professional quality work on most of today's new smaller cameras. Our first mods were for GoPro's Hero2 cameras that branched out to other cameras and drones. We have successfully converted over 6500 cameras for the professional industry. We are a team of 30-year veteran production specialists and techs who have joined forces to build and brainstorm new ideas for cameras and places to use them. We do accept new or used cameras from customers who want them modified or converted. We do this part-time on the side from our normal industry full-time jobs so there may be delays by a couple of days between our daily, weekly projects but we do make it a priority when orders come through even if we have to work a double shift to get customer orders completed and sent out. All of our service labs are located in Orange County California.
In the last few years, there have been new uses for these small cameras than the average sports or home video. Now, these cameras have entered into the film industry, Medical, Agricultural and Environmental industries. We have added UAV camera conversions as well. We have filter partners who supply us with the specs needed for our customers.
We offer support to companies as well. We have exclusively pioneered the concept of fixing small filters internally on small lenses and not over the sensor like other camera mods. This concept allowed customers to simply swap out the lenses rather than have to buy another camera with a different filter in it. Today, you will see lots of other companies copying our technology and even from China. We do provide larger filters for larger sensor cameras as well as internal custom-made hardware to support our custom internal filters.
IRmods tackles more in the customs services aspect where customers can send us their cameras through our services section with "Mod My Camera" or you can request a "Quote" for your camera conversions and modifications. We feel this is a great option for most camera products when they have been discontinued by the manufacturer and officially been outdated.
We will soon have rental equipment for those working on temporary projects and don't want to get stuck with a purchase such as a television production company pitching a pilot or sizzle reel for their show. In the past, they would have to purchase converted gear from us, use it on their production then ask us if we had a buyback program. We don't have a buyback program because that would qualify us as having to sell used equipment which we don't do. Now we will have rentals that fit within everyone's budget.
