Near Infrared

I have been using pentax euipment since the 70s and still have my MX and k100 film cameras along with ser 1 70-210, ser 1 35-85 k501.4.
I am currently interested in NIR and have taken landscape pictures.
I will try to post some pics as soon as I get the hang of doing this.
I use both my K100D-S and KX for this with the 18-250.
I have experienced hotspots on the 18-250 at the smaller apertures but some articles indicate that if I open up the F stop,
this will be gone. The hot spots are magenta colored.
I will post more on this after I have tried comparing shots at different openings.
I am able to focus and compose IR shots with the Hoya 72 filter using the 50mm prime at 1.4 opening and live view on the KX.
I will also try taking IR shots with my 18-55 kit lens.

Welcome to the forum. There is a wealth of knowledge here that will surely help you out. Your K-x and K100D are great cameras and I would suggest that you check out the DSLR section if you have any questions on your IR setup. I hope to see some photos from you soon.

Welcome to PentaxForums! Whether your interest is dSLR & lenses, film photograph or digital, medium (6 x 7, 645, and 645D) format, subminiature (110), or collecting vintage bodies & glass (Spoties, Taks etc) or a combination of the above, you are at the right place. I'm looking forward to seeing some images.
