What are the choices ?

IR filtrer or IR conversion

The newest cameras have better anti IR filter. So if you add a filter that blocks all visible light and hope that IR rays will get to the sensor, these IR rays will be block more completely by new cameras. So very few of these rays will reach the sensor. In other words, if you want to use an IR filter, you'd better use an old digital cameras, certainly not any m4/3 camera. Otherwise expect very long exposure time.

If you want to convert your camera, that's a better choice, Exposure time will be about the same as with normal light since half the rays from the sun are infrared.

If your bowser can translated a web page on the fly, you might give a look to this article in French:

Recently, I've have had my old GH1 converted to IR and did a small slideshow with the pictures taken with it (note : the video clips are quite miserable):
