Infra Red with an SLR

Discussion in 'Digital SLR' started by Dennis Frampton, Aug 10, 2007.

  1. Does anyone have any experience with using a Canon 5D or Canon 1v shooting
    infra-red? Alternatively, let me ask this. The old Olympus C 2020Z was a
    great IR camera but only 2 Megapixel, is there a more up to date higher
    resolution camera equally well suited to IR photography? Thanks for any
    informed input.

    $500 to modify a 5d, otherwise the exposure will be long.

    Well, I was "informed" by a B&H newsletter about this little baby. I don't
    know anyone using it, but it sounds really cool:

    Nikon's little D40 is supposed to be very sensitive to it. The
    Canon's not so much.
    IMO, there should be IR versions of DSLRs without built-in hot
    mirrors. You can always do like
    Leica, add a filter to the lens. You could also shoot in the
    ultraviolet with an appropriate lens.

    Personally, I like the Fuji IS-1, a factory-modded Finepix S9100. It's
    specifically for IR photography. It's not an SLR, it's a prosumer-style
    camera with both an electronic viewfinder and a rear LCD, 9MP, very good
    IR output. http://home.comcast.net/~joshputnam/photo/Fuji_IS1.html has
    more on the camera, and there's an IS-1 group on flickr with quite a few
    examples.

    If you'd prefer an SLR, you can find comparisons of various digital
    cameras' IR performance at:

    I'm quite happy with my IS-1. If you'd like to see some examples, I
    have quite a few on flickr,

    All the color IR there is with the IS-1, and all of the newer monochrome
    IR is, too. Haven't shot any IR film in a year.

  10. The discontinued Sigma SD10 and the newer SD14 have a removable dust
    protector that is also the camera's IR filter. Remove the filter (about a
    twenty second operation on the SD10 and quicker on the SD14) and you have a
    great IR camera.
