A100 converted to IR by myself...
Apr 8, 2012

Hi all,

My old and beloved A100 practically was not being used since I bought my A700 and A550 some years ago (in fact I just used my A100 when remorsing for disregarding It!)...

Then I decided to convert it to 720nm IR by myself: I cut a US$15.00 IR filter I bought from a chinese ebayer last year, some internet search about converting the A100 to IR, reading the service manual and voilá, the surgery was made and my A100 now sees the near IR world. I must confess that I am very proud of myself ! That was a long and atencious task (5+ hours)!!!

A new world of photographic possibilities and creativeness was open to me. I am liking it a lot. Here some of my first shots. WB was fixed in 2500K +3 G9 and shootig in jpg worked very well (Got the RAWs too, just in case). I am still learning some secrets of the IR shooting. Lens was the 18-70mm kit.

converted to B&W in Exposure2 (TMax 100):

Thanks for looking. Hope to encourage others to do the same... If you want You can! Yes, you can!
Happy Easter!
