DIY IR Converted E420

After a considerable long search for suitable (low cost) glass I have a E420 converted to IR.

The problem is actually cutting the glass. Luckily I found highly customizable IR long pass filters.The conversion itself is very simple and with a few screwdrivers and a can air one hour of work..(or a few days off with New Year thinking it can't be so simple in my case).

The E420 has live view and in conjunction with the I-AF (Standard) lenses AF works perfectly.

The major advantage of live view is that you see exactly the correct exposure and WB.

The disadvantage compared with working with a tripod and filters is the large number of photos that you come home with ... so after a few weeks playing in photoshop the actions are working correctly (for now).
Some pictures are in my gallery.
