So I've had a D70 for years, but upgraded to a D300 this year. I got thinking: why have 2 cameras around that do the same thing, except that one is clearly better in every way? Enter LifePixel. I've been doing IR on my D70 since shortly after I got it, but never liked the filter/long-exposure setup it required, so I bought an IR sensor filter and set about doing surgery on my camera. Step 1: Strip 2 screws on the bottom of the camera to give yourself a challenge. Step 2: Figure out the proper screwdriver size for the rest of the screws (Phillips size 000 for the D70, btw) Step 3: Take a dremel to the 2 stripped screws, making them into flathead type ones. Step 4: Remove the bottom, back, and sensor circuit board Step 5: Carefully replace the IR blocking filter with the IR filter Step 6: Reassemble Step 7: See "This card cannot be used error" Step 8: Have heart attack Step 9: Recover (mostly) Step 10: Take the thing apart again Step 11: Reattach all the ribbon cables more carefully this time Step 12: IR camera! LifePixel recommends sending it to them to do the conversion, but I'm loath to pay someone an extra $220 for something I can do myself. THey will, however, adjust your focus for you to compensate for the IR vs visible difference. Mine seems fine with the 18-70 lens, but I can do that myself as well if I have to! One of the first images: Being able to shoot IR now without a tripod is wonderful, and I love how you can actually get great detail now, without the need for long exposure times.
