    Ok thanks, I was hoping to change out my lens on my phantom vision camera to an ndvi. My camera is fixed to the dji phantom

    It's not a simple lens swap... you need a camera that can see near-infrared (N-IR).
    Everyday cameras have and IR filter that blocks N-IR from distorting the color of the video image.
    Example: grass looks white in N-IR and green in normal light.

    You would need to remove the N-IR filter from the camera and most likely, adjust the focus and or change the lens as well. Oh, plus add a red notch filter.

    You would have to go the Go Pro route. I don't know of any Vision cameras that have been modified for this.
