It's got more to do with the lens you use than the particular camera body. Ideally, of course, you want the filter in front of the sensor changed to allow light of around the 700MHz frequency through - but that then makes the camera less useful for general photography. (If you are really interested in the technicalities, it's got something to do with the alternative electron states within hydrogen atoms and the light frequencies they correspond to.)
