Re: Depeche77 Re: IR filtered Shots

Thanks Marco for your detailed instructions. I already have the filter adapter as well as a 58mm r72 720nm IR filter (Opteka, not hoya), and I've tried again based on your instructions. However, no luck with producing similiar results as yours... very interesting.

Here's a shot of the IR filter held in front of my camera (with WB adjusted as you've suggested):

As you can see, the filter side is totally black with no visible image whatsoever.

Here's a shot in P mode with the filter on:

Pure black, no visible image.

Here it is at iso 12,800 (!!!):

At least it's visible, but image quality is totally out of the window.

Can you think of any possible reasons for these results?

Cheers,
Nick
