The Kolari Pocket is a point-and-shoot camera converted for full-spectrum and infrared photography. It’s an affordable introduction to the many ways that you can shoot infrared light.

I’ve created a preview and a review video of the Kolari Pocket. The pros, cons, and who this camera is for are covered in the review and also summarized below. There is also a gallery of images shot with this camera.

Who is this camera for?

If you want to try infrared photography without the expense and risk of converting a camera, this camera is for you. If you want to convert a camera to infrared, but are not sure which of the many infrared cutoff filters to convert to, this camera allows you to try them all affordably. If you are already an infrared photographer and are looking for a portable, affordable, travel, or everyday carry, infrared camera, then this fits the bill.

If you are obsessed with image quality and want complete manual control of the image capture process, then this camera is not for you.
