    Sony NEX-5 is hacked for IR..

    ..by Peter Ganzel.

    As expected, lots of wiring, plastic and such.

    Peter was kind enough to share some vital information on the UV-IR cut filter stack as well.

    I am still waiting for a clip on EVF before proceeding to hack a NEX-5.

    I do not disagree with that.

    All the "childish" hack could be done away with if Sony or Panasonic are bold enough to sell a mirrorless digi back with no AA/UV-IR cut filters and with no Bayer color matrix on the sensors as well.

    Would they?

    I got word that Precision Camera (not Monza's Precision) has sucessfully converted the NEX 5 to IR. So, there is a non "do it yourself" option available.
