Playing with full spectrum!
Lens: Pentax DA 18-135WR Camera: K-01 Photo Location: Montgomery Bell State Park TN 
Posted By: VoiceOfReason, 10-08-2013, 11:58 AM

I finally got to mess with my K-01 after getting it full spectrum converted. In these I had the ISO limited to between 100 and 3200 and shot in Av at f/6.3 until I get used to it. It's kinda cool to me at least, though I can tell I did blow highlights and such in a couple. Anyway, here's the weird!

So cool!

I know this is thread is quite old, I'm considering getting a full spectrum camera at some point. Do you have a gallery of photos taken with the camera? Have you experimented with filters with it?

I don't have a gallery put together, but perhaps I should do that. In full spectrum you will get very deep blue skies if they aren't full of clouds and your colors will shift because it picks up both IR and UV in addition to full spectrum. I know it responds really well with IR filters too, but you have to watch for hotspotting lenses. Let me post a few examples in that. Also, when you make them in B&W IR it can look stunning.

Hmmm..... certainly different, but I'm not sure it's my cup of tea. But, to each his own, eh? Nice composition on each shot, though.

I had it sent off to do it. They remove some glass in front of the sensor and replace it with clear glass in a clean room environment. It is a fun camera!
