    Just got my new infrared filter for my D50 this weekend. I'm gonna have to get another one for the 10mm real soon! Definitely looks awesome, a totally new look on life! Let me know what you guys think.

    you have some hot areas in these but all in all a good first effort.
    When it comes to processing there are many variations and many tweeks you can go for.

    If i go for the channel switch, i usually desaturate individual colours to make them more appealing. For example you will get alot of cyan in channel switched IR so i personally always desat the cyan... or sometimes the red channel if its too strong.
    However some people prefer to keep the cyan cast and all... just have fun playing :thumbup:

    It was only like 35$ (52mm size)... gotta love ebay :)

    I'm going to get another for my 10-20mm... 77mm size... that ones gonna run closer to $70 :(

    Yea I just noticed that... it likes to blow out in the cyan colors... is there anyway you know of to not cause this to happen? can I try custom parameters on the camera and turn the saturation down? It does look better if I desaturate cyans (or yellow if I do a channel swap), I'll get better with it eventually, infrared photography is definetly a genre in itself

    Thanks!

    Go buy one they are cheap :)

    Cool! I have seen these and thought they were for film cameras only. I love the effect, so maybe I will be shopping for a new filter soon :)

    Just curious as to how long your exposures were for and what AP? I just got mine and want to try it out soon.
