do you have photos of the complete "operation" step by step, so that I can try to do the mod to IR ?

I converted a Nikon D40x, but I am not that mechanically inclined, scared actually. But if it doesn't invove desoldering, soldering or too much complication, I would love to modify my E-PL1 - photos step by step willl really help take a decision .

I used Lifepixel's instructions which you can find at the link below:

I didn't remove the dust reduction filter though.

The process involves desoldering and soldering a small wire but (and I don't necessarily recommend this) I just used an X-acto knife to cut away the wire from the soldering and I just used glue to hold it back in place when I was done. It worked for me but I recommend doing it as per Lifepixel's instructions to minimize screwups.
