    Near Infra-Red Photography Anyone?

    I just got my 10D back from www.maxmax.com today for IR-Only treatment... cant wait to take it out and try it with various lenses. Has anyone else ever shot IR? Here are a couple shots using the Hoya R72 filtering which is the "normal" way of shooting IR....

    Cool pics Ross. How much does a conversion like that cost? Is it reversible?

    the conversions done thru MaxMax are $450 plus $20 s/h... or you can buy a brand new camera thru them already done... I am sure that they may be able to reverse it...but I have never heard of anyone having it done...

    Wow... that isn't cheap. I guess you have to REALLY like IR photography to do this. How does his conversion compare to the 20D IR version that Canon makes?

    I have never seen Canons version?... but this works EXTREMELY well...the last shot I posted was at almost dark... that was strictly reflective IR light that you can see including what looks to be "sunrays" coming through the clouds.. I couldnt see that with my bare eyes...

    Here are a couple from inside shooting...

    IR does wierd things to eyes...


    Cool Nikon Commercial Showing the Camera...


    Here is pre-grayscale processing...


    Plastic leaves reflect IR too....

    For those of you that don't know the beautiful lady in the picture... she has very red hair... so this is a cool look. I think this might be the first picture I've seen of her that she wasn't looking through the camera... aha, she has a face! I'm starting to dig this... seeing the uniqueness of it. I don't have too many artistic genes... so I have to ease into this kind of stuff..

    Yeah its actually kinda fun to find out what does and doesnt give out IR light...I cant wait for summer or some warmer lighting days to takes some more outside stuff... for those that dont understand the difference between the two lights here is a nice graph:



    Normally a camera has an IR-Blocking filter attached to the CMOS/CCD... the IR-Only process removes that filter and replaces it with a high quality version of the Hoya R-72 filter which blocks the visable light spectrum and allows the "near IR" light spectrum to pass... with this you get pictures that dont take 20-30 seconds, they meter and shoot just like a normal picture would with fast shutter and appropriate aperature.

    Man I wish I didn't have 1000 hobbies that require lots of money... R/C racing, home theather, computers, computers, computers, car stereo, bicycling (got one heck of a nice Trek 5900), traveling... All those use up my money and don't allow me to have a dozen camera bodies...

    That's pretty darn cool. I love photography, but just can't justify dumping the amount of money in to it when I don't use my camera on a daily basis. Errrr... Quit posting all these good photos, my pocket book is on fire and burning holes in my pocket... no.. must... resist... must... not... buy... new... camera...

    Thanks for the information.... I think...
