Re: Infrared Help Please (2 pics with 5700)

Ted, I also use R72 with 5700 and indeed it is a difficult combination :). Your sample pic looks exactly like what I shot when I got R72. Somehow pre-focusing did not work for me therefore I try regular autofocusing if light permits. Or some times I also use manual focus (10 clicks backwards from infinity). You can also brighten the LCD to make the scene more visible when R72 is screwed on. Just couple of months ago I got 89b another filter which is not as dark as R72. Using this, I can also shoot IR in non-ideal light/situations.

You can see my R72 IRs at and 89b IRs at .
