Eh...I always hate showing people my stuff, but I'd might as well start doing it. Because I'm going to criticize the HELL out of other peoples' pictures, and it'd probably be sort of a "troll action" if I did so without showing people any of my own stuff. So...here are a few of my infrared pictures...

^^^^ awesome stuff, I love the variety...something other than your typical landscapes in IR.

Thanks for your comments, I have found IR works well for many subjects.

Holy crap!! Look at that water!! Awesome!!

Thanks a lot, the colour conversion action allows for lots of tweaking.....I went for a fantasy effect here.

I've converted and used a number of digital cameras. Gone through Canon G1,G2,G3,G5,G6,XT and Nikon 5400,5700. With DSLR's not all lenses will work properly, on some you'll see a hotspot in the center of the image due to the coatings and internal reflections. If you want to get into it then a converted camera is best as the shutter times are pretty much normal. You can have the hot filter removed and then use the camera for IR and normal work but you'll always need some type of filter on it. For those interested in conversions there is/was a thread in here somewhere. I think it's in the G camera section.

Yes that's true, I usually use a CPL to get the best results.

As the O.P. here I'd like to thank you for your contributions!

It's a much broader and more fertile field than I had thought.

Keep 'em coming.

Sent a 40D off to Lifepixel today. Asked for the Super Color IR Filter.

Hope to get some help from some of you guys. :D

but you can also have a camera modified. The only problem with this is that you cannot reverse the procedure...you must be willing to have a dedicated camera for infrared photography.

I was not willing to have on of my two DSLr cameras permamently modified for infrared, back then. I want to have still a backup system for visible.
So I invented a way to excange the filter inside the camera: The filters are special grind down, and are now between mirror and shutter! The are directly on the shutter, and can be changed through the mirror box - on has to hold the mirror up, and work there with tweezers. On my camera AF is no longer working, but probably this can be fixed - I do not need AF.

I've found post-processing to be very tricky and finicky for IR pics taken with a 720nm filter over the lens, and I can't yet justify the cost of a dedicated LifePixel conversion. I do like the false color renditions when done well, but am not much of a fan of the B&W. These are my two best efforts so far, and are from my former S3IS:

QUOTED IMAGE

Very nice, though I don't particularly like those hexagonal lens flare spots.

Very good image, and good job for taking the initiative to actually do things for yourself when there was no one around to do it for you.

Though that makes me wonder...it ought to be very EASY for someone to do that for you, right? I mean...all you basically did was find a means to switch filters in the same camera. And in that case, you were working AGAINST the camera maker's design.

So...how much did it cost you to get that to work? How much time/effort/money did it cost you to retain the camera's initial functions while ADDING the ability to use infrared? Certainly less than the cost of a flat-out conversion, or else you would've just done that.

So...how expensive could it be for camera manufacturers to INCLUDE IR-passing filters along with IR-blocking filters, and to then allow both of those filters to be switched depending on the user's intent? I mean...if that were actually incorporated into the basic design of a camera model, and then distributed across thousands of units sold, then the cost of manufacturing a particular unit has to go down, right? So aside from the "they;re deliberately leaving that capability out in order to make you buy TWO cameras if you want to do infrared", is there any reason why infrared capabilities can't be utilized on a camera that allows switching between infrared and visible light modes? You already modified your camera to do BOTH, and that was working against the original design. If the manufacturers simply incorporated that design into the camera in the first place, and then distributed the research/development/m​anufacturing costs across THOUSANDS of units sold, what would be the actual cost (per unit sold) for someone like Canon to include that feature as one of the basic functions of their SLRs?

Thanks Clean Gene!
I like to do new things, pioneering. Not things I have already in my Photo DIY Directory.
It is a bit risky most for the equipment, but in the rest of my life I avoid risks.

The main effort was to have the idea and to grind the filters.
The cost (without time) for me was cheaper than a normal conversion - and I have more filters (they could be much smaller than those in front of the lens).
My toughts to make that more usable for normal users, is to make something like a thin black frame around the filter, with that the user has not to work with tweezer in the camera box.

For a camera manufacturer this would be not much cost, I suppose 5-20 US$ per additional filter.
But the problem is warranty and support:
The customer could touch the sensor - this is not that risky, but there is a risk. More risky is that the shutter is very near. Dust is in my version a big problem - and it would be the same with a version that a manufacturer makes. As long as users want clean cameras to use their images without dust cleaning, such an idea is not sellable in larger numbers.

I didn't know there was an IR thread going here! It's a shame it's so small :*( Nothing to contribute at this time, but I may pick up a cheap body with enhanced color filter in the future :)

There ist a second thread- called 5DII - but different cameras inside as picture examples.

Here a image of my universal camera EOS 350D:
