I agree..both are incredible. I dont think #1 could be any better, except for the 'whites' of her eyes..
maybe that is because I too love IR..
What frequency/wavelength are you using with the 400D-IR?? I have a 720nm 20D, and am thinking of just doing a "Full Spectrum" to my 40D so I can use it for ANY spectrum, ANY time.the only downside is having to use lens mounted filters...but, if you shoot manual, who cares?
I have always used Full Spectrum on my "main" bodies(5D2/7D/60D/etc), but left my 1D3 stock.
It is just so much more versatile.
For "normal" daytime images/WB, you can use this:

It is designed for cameras that are converted for Astro imaging, but it is literally PERFECT for cameras that have no stock filters in front of the sensor.
The filter will only work on CROP(1.6x) bodies, AND EF lenses...
doesnt limit me much with my gear, but for some people it would..
btw, I do these conversions for a living...(not soliciting, just in case anyone was wondering why someone would 'experiment' with every model Canon makes, even $2-6k(7D/1D3/5D2 to 1DsMarkIII..etc) camera bodies.lol)..
Sorry, didnt mean to derail the thread..
Again, brilliant work. I love it..
