I am surprised that you ever get your K100D back from your wife ...

Well, that won't happen since the camera is officially "hers" now (I still get to play with it now & then)

Really like my K100D, it may not have the most pixels or the widest ISO range or live view but it can still take some good shots.

K100D used as a infrared camera. Hoya IR filter Pentax A 50/1,7 or Rikenon 50/2 (don’t remember exactly – both are fine for IR photos) at f8 and 1 sec.

Another lens which is fine and works OK on K100d is the original pancake (SMC-Pentax M 40/2,8). K100D is a small for a DSLR and with this one is just barely bigger then some mirrorless offerings. This is also good for IR.

Very nice! Did you have it converted? Salut, J

Thank you, Jean! K100D works good for IR even without conversion. I using made also some photos without or even monopod, but this is really tricky.

OK ... thanks.

Did you use a IR filter then ? J

Hi, Jean,

Yes I use Hoya IR filter (this one seems to be the best, I made quite a research before purchase). Lenses that I tested and are OK for IR are: SMC Pentax A - 50/1,7, SMC - Pentax M - 50/1,7, SMC - Pentax M - 40/2,8 and Rikenon 50/2 (this seems to have best contrast which is important for IR with K100D - you can expect quite high noise if you make strong image edition).

OK ... et merci. An IR filter has been on my "short list" for a while. Maybe I should push it up to the top of that list ... J

I really like the effect of the IR filter. I may have to try my hand at this as i have exactly the same camera and lens you used (less filter). Thanks for giving me the idea.
