Well, it seems I have found the coven
..,and we're glad you did! Wonderful photos. It's funny - I usually get a different response (from non-photographer friends) when I pull out my ancient *ist D. "Oh, you have one of those fancy professional cameras!"

Thanks again for all your contributions, everyone! Have a great weekend

Nice shooting and welcome!

This is an old one from 2014 that I've posted before - one of my faves for some reason. It was a hot summer day on Main Street in Grapevine TX. M28/3.5 on *ist D:

Edit pic remove. I just looked at this one my phone it looked black. I look better on the computer. I guess I need to calibrate to make my them look the same. That is a different thread


Since breaking out the k100d, I learned that the camera doesn't block IR light very well. Order a cheap 720nm filter. Handheld, auto focus. Need to learn some post processing techniques. Seems a little soft. But for only having a few minutes to play with it I am pleased.

Just a couple of notes from personal experience :- autofocus and infra-red don't usually work well together, on my *ist's at least.
In case you don't know, infra-red and "visible light" focus at slightly different points. Not a big deal for a landscape at infinity or thereabouts at f/8 ... a bit more of a problem wide open and close up.
Many old manual-focus lenses have a specific infra-red focussing index, usually a red mark on the distance scale. The trick here is to focus in "visible light", fit the filter and shift the focus ring to line up with the red mark before making the exposure.
With the filter fitted, TTL metering is usually good, but do keep the viewfinder covered when making the meter reading, else stray light will affect the meter through the viewfinder.


Finally ... enjoy

Take 2. Processed on a different computer. Still seems a little dark. Bumped up the exposure in post. This will be a a fun learning experience.

Assuming you're using Windows ... get a copy of IrfanView (it's free and regularly updated), load your original image, press "Shift - U" (auto adjust) then "Ctrl - G" (greyscale) ... be surprised

What?? Haha, this is incredible! I love how I can float around this forum for years and still learn new things everyday. Now I am reading through loads of articles and forum threads about using unmodified cameras with weaker IR filters for IR photography. Definitely gonna give this a go after some more research. Excited to see what you come up with.

I am please, the monochrome is pretty straight forward but the there is a lot to learn with color swapping and other things I see people doing. Some of my issue were workflow issue, using a laptop that I dont typically use and the brightness was off.


I had wanted a infrared camera for awhile but I convinced myself that it wouldn't be worth doing it w/o a converted camera. But I never wanted to spend the money. After learning that the older cameras do a pretty good job I figured it was worth a shot with a $25 filter. Obviously a converted would be nice just for the ability to be able to see through the view finder but for now this is good enough
