    Hey guys. If anyone was doubting the Digital Rebel's ability to shoot IR, here's the proof that it's more than capable. Let me know what you think. Criticism is always welcomed :)

    [​IMG] - 15 seconds at ISO 200, f/11
    [​IMG] - ISO 400, f/4.5, 20 seconds.
    [​IMG] - ISO 400, 1/3 sec, f/1.8

    The first and last were shot with the 50mm f/1.8. The middle shot was taken with the 18-55mm kit lens, and there was a nasty hotspot that I tried to clone out, but you can still see it. That lens, and other cheap zooms don't work well for infrared.

    A few other shots and some different angles of the first one can be found here.

    Thanks! :)

    Really great pictures you have here Matt. The third one is amazing! IR is definitely possible with digital cameras since many digital cameras pick up atleast some IR light. I've seen many great IR pictures from several different DSLR cameras. Anyway, once again cool shots. I've been meaning to get into IR myself. Thanks for reminding me. ;)

    I getting this filter! I spent a few hours last night trying to get a similar effect in PS and I just wasn't happy with the outcome. Thanks for sharing these, they are GREAT!

    Thanks everyone :)

    The funny thing is that you have to compose the shot and focus with the filter off, then carefully put the filter on, and be careful no to change your focus :p Stopping down to f11 or further helps alot to make sure things are in focus.

    Nice shots Matt. Where did you get your R72? I ordered one and it was backordered for a few months... I cancelled the order a little while back.

    What lens are you using it on? You have to be careful because a lot of zoom lenses will give you nasty hotspots. I got a 52mm size for my 50mm f/1.8.
