90D infrared photography
2

The 90D has an RGB+IR sensor and I have read on e-con systems that this means a camera can do away with the IR filter and instead this,

  • Provides a dedicated IR channel to separate the visible and IR image data cleanly. This improves the quality of the RGB output by helping to measure the amount of IR light in the RGB component of the image accurately and do proper color correction.

So I'm wondering how this affects IR photography (without conversion) with the 90D. Does the lack of an IR filter and presence of IR pixels on the sensor make it better, or will the reliance on software to improve the RGB make it harder to get an IR photo?

I have tried it with a 720nm filter and I'm getting some pleasing results, though with more green retained than tends to be the case in IR tutorials.
