Re: Infrared Help Please (2 pics with 5700)


You've done a great job with your IR pictures. I'll be back with some more later. Thanks for the tips -- and sharing what is possible with the combination. I may try the 89b later.

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

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