    I recently bought a D50 for IR photography and I found its CCD is producing extremely well IR images. Just taken some around sydney area and please give some comments, thank you. :)

    I have never tried my hand at IR photography, but I am strongly thinking about it, especially after seeing posts like this. I must say my favourite is #2

    Wow, more absolutely stunning Alex1030-pics!
    I have been thinking about IR for a while, and keep thinking whether at one time sooner or later I would want to give it a try, too ... these look like it may be worth it! Very good.

    Apart from 2, which I like as much as everyone else here does (since it IS that good!), I am also a big, big fan of #6 here! That one is so crisp and clear and all black and white, I mean: ALL black and white (almost). Very impressive!!

    Thank you everyone for the comments!!! It is my great pleasure to post photos here!!!:heart:

    For the D50, I only used the Hoya IR R72 filter to shoot. I did not have any modification with the senosr. Actually, i tried to use D2X with this filter, however, the result is not as good as the D50. I guess it was the problem of the D2X CMOS sensor in compare to the D50 CCD.

    And to rallyxe

    Before i take the photos, i will set the white balance of the camera with the filter on. U may aware that, once u put the filter on, u cannot really see anything. After u measured the white balance, u can composed the frame. When everything is ready, it is very simple, just put the filter in and shoot. They will come out grey, brownish images instead of red colour image due to the PRE SET white balance. It is always good to shoot RAW, so that allows u to adjust the white balance further when u get home. There is actually not much tricks behind the shot from my opinion. I hope my english isn't too bad, and u will understand what i mean. :hugs:
