    I read some threads on the D70 and IR photographing.. I understand that
    they are removing a 'hot mirror' which i assume is the IR filter... but,
    man... once thats off, u need to take the camera apart and replace the 'hot
    mirror' to take regular pics again... wow, thats a hassle.. Now I am
    wondering if it possible to do that on a CP5700...
    Isn't there a way you can make that 'hot mirror' into a filter that screws
    onto a lens like a reg. filter?

    I don't know about the camera dissassembly, but yes, B&W and Heliopan,
    if not others, make IR blocking or `high-pass` filters, I think they
    just call them `digital filters`. You may have to ask for their
    extended catalogue though - if you ask for an IR filter you will get
    exactly the opposite to what you are wanting.

    If you are choosing a camera on that basis, it might be worth
    considering cameras with nightshot capability like the Sonys. To go
    into nightshot mode they move the IR filter away..
