Infra Red

Here is a nice link for those into infra Red.
We discussed the conversion of Jay’s Nikon Coolpix during last weeks podcast, and the resulting images achieved.
This is a site called Life Pixel and there is a great video of the process.
Sample pics.

  1. 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:

  2. 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.
