  • Created discussion thread Full frame Sigma - IR capable ?
    The removable dust/hot mirror protector on all Sigma dslr models is a great feature for IR shooters. I'm wondering if that feature will be possible with shorter flange on the upcoming ff model. -Gary
  • Commented on photo 1951 Ford Victoria in the Car Shows 2018 challenge

    My pet peeve is pedestrians and licence plates. In a busy venue like this, it's difficult to get any clear shot of car, but sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

  • The FS-converted DP1 and DP1x, that I once had, produced the best FS colors, and were just a lot of fun to use. Most of the SOOC jpeg's looked great, without any editing. Man-made blue or red ...
  • I think most would agree that any personal image, will remind you of a time and place. Cheers, Gary
  • Yes, the dust protector/IR-UV-block filter was removed on my sdQ, and a 720nm IR filter was placed on-lens. The IR spectrum is well within the range of digital sensors. Conversions are common ...
  • Created discussion thread IR, full spectrum & UV on the sdQ
    Lately, I've been experimenting with bw infrared, full spectrum and UV on the sdQ. The first two are of the same patch of foliage; one in bw IR (Monochrome mode, 720nm filter), the other FS ...

    Nice vintage processing on the Olds. The M8 / Jupiter8 sounds like interesting combo! The r-w-b car in the original post is an AMC AMX.
  • Replied in Ford GT
    I take it that you're referring to the r-w-b  version ? This one was taken with the full spectrum DP1x.  Actual paint color was blue. There are a lot of car events in my area, and find it a great ...

  • ...on a cloudy day. -Gary sd Quattro, Monochrome mode, 720nm filter
  • Blacks and contrast are a tricky thing in bw processing. For bw IR, I prefer darker, but not absolute black in the sky, while retaining the snow white qualities of the trees and foliage. For me ...
  • I gave color/AWB/Ntrl a try today, but I don't I don't see any appreciable difference between a color processed to bw or Monochrome mode. I also took some shots with the Monochrome mode 'Filtering ...
  • The one thing that I hadn't tried, was to adjust the sliders in the sdQ 'Monochrome' menu, as mentioned in the Tim Shoebridge article. As soon as I made the adjustments, the whites were brighter, ...
  • Thanks Laurence...I think I've figured it out to some degree... -Gary
