    Re: "Capturing Infrared"



    First post in this thread. After looking at everyone's images here I decided to buy a used Fuji X-E2 and have Lifepixel convert it to Super Color. I am not new to IR, but I am new to color IR. I have in the recent past used one of my SD1M with the blocking filter removed (user can easily remove and reinstall) and a R72 filter for black and white. Even though once the blocking filter is removed and the SD1M can become super color 590nm ready, I would still need a filter and the SD1M has no live view. For black and white it is adequate, but I want live view for color. I did my first IR photography way back in the early 80s with Kodak high speed IR film and an A25 filter. It is much better today with mirrorless cameras.

    The image was made shortly after I received the camera from the UPS guy and then walked around my back yard snapping away. I used an ExpoDisc and made a custom WB moments prior to shooting. Once the images were taken into Lightroom (LR), I noticed one of the WB sliders was maxed out. I then decided to download Adobe's DNG Profile Maker and made a camera calibration profile for use in LR. Then I took the first image and used the camera calibration profile, selected all the other images from the shoot and synced the camera calibration for them all. LR saves me so much time when I know what I need to do. Once this image was chosen, I took it into Photoshop and used Topaz filters to adjust the color, add a texture and a bright spot with haze so it looked like the sun was behind the tree which in reality it was on the other side of the property.

    Thank you to everyone contributing to this thread and I hope to be adding here over time.

    Kind regards,
    Darr

    I set my white balance by shooting green grass. You might want to compare a scene using both green grass and expodisc for setting the white balance.
    I use a Sony A7II LP converted, but I have heard that the Fuji's make excellent IR cams when converted.
    If you want to max the color that you have to work with, you might try using the convert to Profile command in PS to go to the LAB space (not Image>mode>LAB). You can use the curve command to increase the sat, lum, hue and to white balance. After coming back to PS, then you can use Topaz, Nik or whatever you like to work with the color.
    Looking forward to seeing more from you!

    I have seen that little Nikon on Kolari's web site and been tempted by the idea of having it in my car, pocket or purse. Did you have to do a lot of post to get the files to look like this? Is noise a problem?

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    nope not a huge amount of post..i don't use PS, only lightroom, i setup a profile using the dng profile editor... results are much nicer and seem to have a wider "range" if one uses a not too bright and not too dull/dark green plant in the sun for the original WB...i realised shooting the right kind of green color [plant] really makes a difference.


    the S1 is definitely not good for low light evening/night shots..very noisy at higher ISO..

    ill probably get an a6300 at some point that should be good enough for most IR shots that id take, mainly in the street

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    Hi all, I shouldn't have looked at this thread. I am now going to order a A7II from KEH and get it sent to LP and get the SuperColour Mod. My question is I am a LE shooter and want to add IR, use A7rII plus Loxias, have looked most of this thread and haven't seen hotspot thoughts on the loxias, any thoughts?

    I use a LifePixel A7II full spectrum. I know that the 16-35 FE that I had did not have bad hotspots, 24-240 FE does. I have been using Voigtlander 12 and 15 and Canon FD 20 and 24 without a problem, but have never tried Loxia's. Please report how the Loxia's work out.

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    Now that I have been looking into IR a add pops up on fb for Kolari Vision and it mentions a hot spot reducing coating on their conversions, has anyone used this, does it work?

    I have no experience because I sent my camera to LP just before the Kolari hot spot reducing filter became available. I heard from one person on a forum that I belong to (who had it put into A7II) that it was not perfect. I've read from another review that it does not get rid of a hot spot, but reduces the effect by one to two stops. By that they mean that if a hot spot would show up at f/8, then it would now not show up until f/16. Here is the reference: http://infraedd.blogspot.co.uk/2016/...t-issue_3.html

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    The reason for my question was I couldn't see the Loxias on that list. Ordered a readymade A7II from KV today with 590nm conversion. Can't wait to be part of the thread. Travelling to some of NZs more scenic regions over summer break and looking forward to shooting with IR as well as my normal BNW LE.

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    Those lists only exist because people report their findings, so please write in with any findings.

    You will be very happy with the 590nm filter. (You probably know this, but others reading may not) you can add 665nm, 720nm, 830nm, etc. on the front of the lens to get other effects.

    I can't wait till you post some photos!

    Thanks Cindy, thats why I went the 590nm route. Also I am primarily a BNW guy and I think the OTT colour of the 590nm will be a welcome alternative to LE BNW. I am really looking forward to it arriving as well
