    We're getting some great samples here. Please include the filter used if you would so as to give others information.

    Nex7 665nm with 1937 Contax Carl Zeiss Sonnar 50 f/1.5. I was happy that my old Sonnar did not have a hot spot.

    A lot of great talent here folks!
    Thanks! I normally get called Mr Pastel by my colour shooting friends :-)

    That's Evergreen Plantation on River Rd, just outside New Orleans and quite near the classic Oak Alley Plantation. I think this is better and not a tourist location. The farm truck went barreling down the road and it was sunny with god beams so what is a man supposed to do?

    I love the sky in this one.
    What lens do you use on your G1? I usually end up using the kit 14-42mm on my G1 IR 665nm. I like the G1 for IR because it is little and light and tucks into the corner of my bag.

    Often, Cindy, it's the good old 14-45 Panny kitlens that came with my G1 so many years ago ... Indeed, G1 is ideal for IR shooting while hiking.

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    Raf,
    You are correct, 14-45mm. (I have the Oly 14-42, too, and get the ranges mixed up.) It is a fantastic little machine, that original G1.

    Here is one with mine and the Panny 14-45mm kit lens:

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    After deciding to try a 135mm lens on the 7r (IR) I went looking for one and found it on E-Bay. Found what was advertized as a JC Penney 135mm f/2.8 manual focus lens adapted to Sony E mount. Seeing as how it was listed at $99.99 I figured I couldn't really go wrong. Ended paying $106.84 with shipping. Got it just a little while ago and immediately took a couple test shots.





    Both shot f/8 160 ISO 50 and 665 nm

    Haven't had a 135 since the M9 .....

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    The lens has a nice OOF for a $99 lens. It also doesn't have a hot spot, so that is good. It looks like a great find. A long lens opens up a whole new IR world.

    I especailly like the first one of the seed pods.

    You have inspired me to get out my 135's and give them a try. I have a Leica M mount Canon 135 f/3.5 and a Leica 135 f/2.8 elmarit-R. I also have two 100mm macros that have adapters for my NEX7, so this should be fun.

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    I remember shooting the 135 a lot while I was using the M9; Sandy even had a 135 with her Canon. While I want to keep the 7r (IR) as simple as possible using the 24-70 as my base lens I also decided that I needed a little longer reach after deciding to visit San Diego Wildlife Safari later this year (it also should be interesting in Jackson Hole).

    While the lens has JCPenney printed on it, it also shows it was made in Japan so who knows who actually made it. As best as I can tell the lens was made or offered in the '80s. At $99 I think it's a keeper!

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    NEX 5N-IR (720 nm) with Mamiya 645 55mm f/2.8 N on a Rhinocam. Manual exposure 1/40 sec f/16 ISO 100. Eight image stitch in AutoPano Pro3.51. The raw images were first batch processed through AccuRaw Monochrome with the settings for IR converted sensors and exported as DNG files to LR. I use custom toning RGB icc profiles that are designed mainly for print soft proofing but can also be used to tone neutral images simply by profile conversion in CS6. The profile used on this image was a warm/neutral tone derived from a print made on Canson Platine using the True BW Rip with a warm/neutral profile. You can easily make your own RGB toning/softproofing profiles using Roy Harrington's QTR RGB-ICC profile generator.

    Thanks Cindy. I added a dropbox link to the icc profile for anyone who might want to try this method of toning. Just put the profile in your colorsync profiles folder so it can be accessed in either photoshop or lightroom. Open your image file (RGB) in photoshop use the Convert to profile menu command and select the toning profile with Absolute Colorimetric rendering option. Then Convert the image back to RGB (Adobe or Prophoto RGB, whatever the original was) using Perceptual rendering.

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    Thanks for sharing the profile, Carl. I use split toning quite a bit in LR, but am happy to have a new technique to use. Here is a photo I took recently in Charleston, SC with my Panasonic 665nm and Oly 12-40 f/2.8 Pro. I did not do a channel swap or desaturation. I just took it into Photoshop and converted to your profile.

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    Thanks to Cindy, I found you guys!
    Second day. The learning curve is waayyy steeper than I thought. I can't get a decent B&W image. I don't know if it's because the Super Color conversion or what? However, color ones are starting come nicely.
    Maybe that's the reason I see so much color IR.
    The 20mm pancake I find very sharp. Maybe I did read too many reviews saying it was a so so lens. It is not, it's great and love the shade!
    I hope to learn from everybody here. Super thread!

    Glad to have you here. I LOVE this super color. I will get this conversion next time.

    What kind of trouble are you having converting to black and white?

    Are you doing a custom white balance (shoot green grass). Your Sony will probably show an error, but it will set it.

    If you are using LR or ACR, there is a problem getting the WB to set properly. I made a profile following this: Setting White Balance on Infrared Images with Lightroom (with video) | Luminescence of Nature Photography I set the profile on each photo in LR.

    I notice that you did not reverse the red and blue channels. By doing that, your false color will have blue in sky. It is not necessary, but it might help to do that before changing to black and white.

    Are you converting to black and white in LR or PS? If so, you can move the sliders of the individual colors to help to get the black and white look that you want.

    If all else fails, you can buy a 830nm filter for your lens and use that when you want black and white images.

    I'm looking forward to more of this awesome Super Color! I wouldn't change a thing in this photo. I really like it just the way that it is.

    Graham,
    Both are stunning, but I prefer the color. My eye is drawn right in by the color, and the trees seem to have an extra bit of luminosity.

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    Thanks Cindy for such kind words bout the image.
    I will try your directions and see what happens.
    I used super clunky Sony IDC after the limitations of ACR. I'd love to use ACR even more then LR. Need more reading, haha.
    I haven't tried profiling shooting green grass. Do I use it as a grey card? If so, isn't it the same thing sampling the grass in the effective image?
    If I use a filter (850nm) on my lens, do I lose speed as when using a normal sensor? Is it deep? This image was shot handheld without any sweat. I don't want to lose this.
    Tripod time will be fine for the Rhinocam. :-)
    Well, thanks again for everything.
    Have a great weekend
    Eduardo

    PS The camera came from LifePixel with the WB set at 2500K. The jpegs come with no red cast and both camera monitors look cool to me. Nice!

    If all else fails, you can buy a 830nm filter for your lens and use that when you want black and white images.

    I'm looking forward to more of this awesome Super Color! I wouldn't change a thing in this photo. I really like it just the way that it is.

    Graham, the color image "sings." It draws one's eyes to the wedding party, while yet leaving the trees as the major player. Absolutely lovely! (And I'm normally a b&w IR person.) --Barbara

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    Eduardo,
    The filter factor of the B+W 093 that I have is 20-40. I lose about 5 stops. With the Sony sensor, I can still hand-hold on sunny days, YMMV. For lanscape shots, I would use a tripod.

    The problem with in camera custom WB is if you shoot raw, then the Adobe ACR engine (both in LR and CS6) does not use the custom setting (defaults to min 2000 K). C1 will let you set a custom WB below that and get a better result. If you are shooting jpegs then the in camera custom WB is fine.

    The custom profiles that you can set using the tutorial that I linked to allow you to set a lower K value in LR.

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    Carl,
    Seems like there are several ways to handle the WB. Don Libby "washes" his files in the native converter. I use the profiles in LR and you use C1. It is great that we can share our ideas and knowledge here.

    I just converted about 50 photos (from a shoot with my G1 665nm) using your Canson Platine profile, and they look great.

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    Hi Cindy, I dowloaded the Adobe DNG Profiler according to the video.
    Life is so much easier now, thanks so much. It seems my monochromes will come fine now.
    Possibly too, the weather didn't help much. It's been really chromy here lately.

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    Thankyou for the feedback everyone. I normally channel swap my raw images (I'm a custom white balance and process in C1 Pro person) and work them in PS/Color Efex/Viveza before deciding whether to keep the faux colour version or not. Silver Efex Pro works well for me for that.

    This image was a challenge because there was a very distinctive change in the colour of the trees from the far shadow end to the more open end. I tried to tone it down/blend and in fact there's a lot of cyan desaturation in the file. Converting to B&W seems so easy by comparison

    It's fun to feel like a newbie plus also be able to shoot ALL DAY and not be a slave to the 30s of morning & evening lightor shooting only intimate landscapes in low contrast light.

    Very nice, Raf. Do you have a link to a bigger version? I'd love to look closer.

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    Three walkabout shots taken today with the NEX 5N-IR (720) and 28mm f/2.8 M-Rokkor. I used a custom WB profile as suggested by Cindy to adjust WB in LR.

    RB channel flipped image blended with NW tone duplicate. Kept a little color and warmed the highlights.



    Ditto above



    Just a RB color channel flip.

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    Carl, I like all three, but the middle one has a very surreal feel to it.

    Raf, Thank you for the look at the big file. You did a beautiful job of shooting and stitching the exposures.

    Thanks Cindy. Yes, I wanted a bit of drama in this scene.

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    Hi there! I was doing some informal tests trying to confirm the so called "hot spot" that seems to show with the Sony 16-50 kit lens.
    I've been shooting a few here and there but not seeing anything.
    I conducted this informal comparison between the kit lens and the Sony 20 pancake and the Sony 50f1.8
    The 16-50 set at 20mm. But its clearly wider than the 20 prime. All were shot at f5.6
    I can't see it. Do you?
    These pics are straight from the ACR withe the DNG profile. Only changed I did was to equalize brightness as it was a windy-cloudy day.

    Re: "Capturing Infrared"

    Skies were perfect today for shooting IR so I went to the park with the NEX 5N-IR (720nm) and my new 12mm Touit (I couldn't resist the two Touits deal at B&H). Processed in LR with custom dng WB profile and then RB channel flip in CS6.
