    I don't need to be sold on IR photography. I have 3 dslr's i wanted converted to IR. So I contacted LifePixels who runs an ad here. LifePixels will convert almost anything BUT a Pentax. When you question them why, they pretty much put Pentax on the same scale as a piece of sh*t. I also heard from many other Pentaxians that contacted LifePixels just to get turned away.

    Well LifePixels...Pentax's have been shooting IR even without your support. It is just lots of lost $$ for you with your petty prejudices LifePixels.

    Some new IR 8mm cemetery images - PentaxForums.com

    Such is the history of Pentax; they've always made good gear, but rarely been acknowledged for it.

    They do make good equipment, terrible marketing.

    Your images are wonderful. How did you convert? Love the brown toning

    If they elect to run their business that way, why didn't you take your business elsewhere? If a shop that installs race bike parts won't instal VORTEX brand rear sets, I'd just move on to one that does.

    Guess I'm missing what the real complaint is here. Are you offended and take it personal as a business they prefer not to work on your brand?
