    I just orderd a 67mm Hoya R72 Infrared filter for doing IR with my D70 and got a notice that it's backordered. Just like every other accessory for the D70. It's not a D70 specific filter, just the size (67mm) which is the size of the kit lens filter thread. I was hoping to try some IR out this weekend :( Maybe do a little x-ray photographry of the babes at my apartment complex ;)

    I got really excited when I saw these IR pics taken with the R72 and the D70

    and these

    In other news, I ordered another little toy on ebay. A slave trigger for flash. I've got some creative ideas for using it in addition to the built in speedlight on my d70.

    Stop ordering supplies!!! I can't afford anything but a few crappy filters right now and you're depressing me, man. :p


    About those pics....you like those images, eh? I will take this time to point out to you that they look handcolored. You can achieve similar results shooting regular IR and hand coloring prints.

    (Continues to whip the boy into shooting IR here....) :whip: I dunno, I think he likes it....

    This one has always scanned so poorly....but it's actually quite lovely upon closer viewing. It's a 16x20 in real life. :D Kodak HIE and Marshall's photo oils.

    You know I like it terri ;) especially when you do the whipping.

    Yeah, the 2nd link is definately handcolored. Not sure about the first one though. It does still shoot color IR but I'm sure some work was done in PS to get the final results.

    mmmm, they both looked more like color IR to me, although the colors weren't as off. But they had a cool look to them, that's for sure. :D

    [yawn] I'm sorry, but I detest digicam talk. :puke: I'm sorry, I know I'm in the minority and all that.....

    I'm old and outdated, like my little SX70 Land camera. :mrgreen:

    Dude, you gotta cut down the smoothness and give other smooth operators a chance to make smooth comments like that :p
