E-M5 MkI converted to IR

*** REDUCED *** 400+shipping

This is an E-M5 converted to infrared by Protech Repairs a while ago. Sample IR pictures taken with it can be seen here.

Body with cap.
Flash in pouch
Two 3rd-party batteries
USB cable
Software CD

Also includes:
Olympus HLD-6 battery grip

The IR conversion uses a 665nm IR filter to allow false colour shots to be created. In order to take traditional 720nm IR images, you need to add a 720nm filter to the lens.

Thanks to the conversion, you can take IR images without using the long shutter speeds needed when you just put a 720nm filter in front of an unconverted body. The conversion itself costs 300.

I'm looking for 450 but will consider offers.
