    Re: Converting/Modifying to IR

    Don - sorry to hijack the thread, hope you don't mind, but here are a few more images. And thanks for the push to get me to convert my camera by starting this thread.

    First one with the Oly 21, second with Zeiss Jena Flektogon 35mm, last two with Zeiss S-Planar 60mm macro.

    Re: Converting/Modifying to IR

    I'm close to where I want to be however just haven't found the right key for processing. 1DsII 24-70 lens and Singh Ray I filter. The camera goes to the clinic just as soon as I get the 24-105.

    Please don't worry about hijacking the thread as I like where we've progressed - sharing IR images! Or in my case want a be IR...

    Just checked the image today was shot at 545PM. I've got one from 2 pm that I'll post in the morning.

    Re: Converting/Modifying to IR

    Don, I like the tones in the second image. Now I am wondering if it is better to have a dedicated IR camera or to use filters with my regular cameram - most likely the answer is to do both.

    I'm close to where i want to be with PP however I just don't feel I'm there yet. The downside for me right now is that I'm shooting between 10 and 30 seconds and that can cause havoc with clouds. It's a good thing I'm used to shooting with my WRS-1000 and not depending on a viewfinder; I'm shooting much the same with the filter attached as I do with my MF. From what I've read I'll be able to not only use the viewfinder but be able to shoot at somewhat normal speeds once the body is converted. I'm also using a custom WB and find if I open first in C1 and process there I get closer to what I want, nevertheless I'd like to get closer to what I've seen coming from you. Hope that makes sense...

    Re: Converting/Modifying to IR

    My IR modified camera came back from precision camera today. Very fast. It was just a bit more than a week turnaround time. I didn't really have an extra dslr hanging around so I started with a little Canon P&S camera that I had lying around. The nice thing this one takes AA batteries so no worries out into the future. It also has is an articulated LCD which is also nice to have. I went for the enhanced color conversion (665nm). Now I need to read up on processing....but first I need to concentrate on my Iceland shots.

    Re: Converting/Modifying to IR

    Hi Terry glad to see you back and had a safe trip. Please post a couple shot with the P&S so we can see. I decided on the 665nm as well, all I'm lacking is a lens which should be coming anytime.

    Don

    ps how do you think the IR P&S would have worked for you in Iceland? Think you would have used it? Better yet would it have made it gear cut to bring along?

    Re: Converting/Modifying to IR

    Terry, yes, first the Iceland images then the IR! Looking forward to it.

    Don, the speeds I am getting are pretty much normal. I only shot twice with it, once just out the window (couldn't wait LOL) and once I went for a quick walk in the park.

    An experiment below which could prove interesting for me (I didn't really nail the focus but I am interested in the potential).

    I don't have enough IR experience yet to think "would this be a good IR shot". A lot of what I "saw" in Iceland was the layers of texture and color. If anything I'm trying to bring out the colors with some increased saturation so I don't know that it is the camera of choice for there for right now. I think there is so much to learn about their landscape and how to capture the essence that it would have been too confusing.
    However, the camera is small enough that I think it will just be an "automatic" for a trip bag.

    Will post a couple of shots over the weekend.

    Re: Converting/Modifying to IR

    cmb - great bug! I think the thing about IR photography is thinking outside the box and experimenting with different things.

    Terry - See above comment regarding "I don't have enough IR experience yet". I think the basics of composition will still apply with the only difference being how the image turns out. Then again you might expand and try shooting different subjects.

    I'm looking forward to adding IR to my landscape. I can see doing an entire shoot here in IR color. Okay gotta run and check out of the hotel and start heading ome.

    Re: Converting/Modifying to IR

    A few more experiments with the IR 20D. Not sure where I am heading but I am enjoying this!

    Re: Converting/Modifying to IR

    Extremely windy here so the plant life is essentially impossible to test right now (except my indoor basil plant). However here is my standard test scene. First up straight from the camera, second is simple cnvert to greyscale with no other changes. I'm not sure if they did anything to the camera for focus but the zoom doesn't seem all that smooth.

    Re: Converting/Modifying to IR

    Decided to try a different approach to possessing these images. So far I've used CS4 ACR to open and process, C1 then ARC and CS4 and today I went to Cannon Digital Photo Professional then ACR and CS4 to process and I think I like this way much better. Of course I'm hoping that once I get the camera converted I'll have an easier time in PP.

    These were all taken with the 1DsII, 24-70 and between 10 and 30 seconds.

    The first is an overlook by Cedar Mountain the second is from the Navajo Point overlook.

    Don - some nice stuff in that first image. I like the dark sky.

    Re: Converting/Modifying to IR

    Returned from the last trip this past Sunday and sent the 1DsII and 24-105 to Precision Camera for the conversion. Looks like I should have the kit back in my hot hands by the end of next week and will post comments shortly afterwards.

    Looking forward to being able to shoot more naturally without using the lens filter and long exposure times.

    Nice to see some close-ups!

    Here are a few (~1 year old) from D80-IR (Hoya R-72).

    CMB, Thanks.

    I think the false color aspect of the IR is worthwhile exploring (besides B&W or monochrome). Two very different scenarios/shots.
