    I ordered the hot pass filter from Lifepixel and modded my old 10D to only shoot IR,. It’s a tricky conversion, if you are doing it yourself label every screw that comes out, they are almost all different. I haven’t shot much with it yet but it is awesome. Unlike you stated in the podcast, you dont need to put any filters on the front of the lens and you can use the viewfinder just like you’ve always done.

    Here’s some of my images taken with it:

    The best results are shooting in raw and then using this action to fix the colours:

    Thanks James,
    I will look into the 10D conversion for my Canon.
    I am glad to hear that a filter conversion exists whereby you can still use the viewfinder.
    Thanks for listening and we will be talking about this next week for sure.

    Cheers Phil,

    I forgot to mention that this article has tons of good info on IR photography.
