I converted a Pentax DL to IR a few years back. The conversion process could be daunty if you don't have the experience disassembling/assembling small electronic gadgets. But the bigger problem is not the conversion process itself. Check out this site (http://ir-photo.net/ir_mod.html) to find out what you are up against before you take your 400D apart. That being said, I will most likely convert my XSi (450D) to IR again when I upgrade it. For one thing I can use more pixels than the 6MP sensor chip of Pentax DL provides (it essentially becomes a 1.5MP camera because only the red sensors are sensitive to IR wavelength). For another 450D's sensor chip has lower noise.

When you get down to the nuts and bolts of photography, the results depend on the 'nut' behind the camera!
