Want to have some fun, the HS35 is IR sensitive. Probably the HS50 is also equally as sensitive. Get yourself a Hoya R72 IR filter (58mm), not really cheap, but it wont break the bank either.

You will need to shoot in base ISO, not auto, and no DR over 100% either. There is a slight tenancy toward a hot-spot but not bad, once converted it is hardly noticeable. Good news is the HS35 is sensitive enough that you can hand-hold the camera. And fast enough for average shooting.

My settings on these test shots was ISO 100, DR 100, F4, Aperture Preferred, EV -1 Stop. You need a lot of exposure comp for IR, that goes for any camera. You could raise the ISO to 200, and get a little more speed, but you might increase the tenancy to developed a hot-spot?, I did not try it.

I edited for highlights slightly, which says that a little more than -1EV could possibly be used, but I would rather edit slightly. As the more exposure comp, the slower the shutter soeed.

Anyway here is the pudding (proof).
