    I know they make infra-red filters for the d70 (and everything else). I was just wondering, anyone here ever use one? How much are they? Are they as super-neatotastic as the pics they make?!:redxd: And why did I use redx? Cuz it's cool and I hadn't seen it before.

    Anyway! If anyone has any experience, please point me in the right direction... I'm looking to get a shiny new toy, and it's this or an accessory flash. Or, if I get my job, BOTH! :noes:

    I bought an IR filter, but have yet to have an opportunity to try it.

    they are EXPENCIVE!!!!!

    i have one for my 20d kit lens.. 58mm it was about 50 bucks.. you go larger than that and the price starts almost doubling.


    its pretty neat... you have to focus with the filter off the camera and lock the focus. then screw the filter on without moving the front element, if its a front element focusing lens.

    metering is usless and you cant see anything through the view finder... so its pretty much a shoot and re-shoot and adjust type thing

    the settings i use in camera are in camera black and white with a red filter.

    50 bucks is about the going price on a high quality polarizer, and everyone and their mother has some of those. . . :dunno:

    Just remember you have to adjust the focus from normal, (closer to the camera) because your camera is focusing on the IR frame. Most lenses will have a red dot next to the line, to the right or left depending on how the focusing works that signifies where you should focus with the filter on. If you don't have the dot, just adjust the focus to a bit closer to the camera, you'll have to figure out how much depending on which lens you're shooting IR on. Of course you can increase DOF and give yourself a wider range of acceptable focus by stopping down, but that means you'll have to have longer shutter times or higher iso as well. :wiggle:

    There are some newer filters out there that you DO NOT need to adjust the focus for. Be sure o read the description when you go to buy it Ingen.
