Hi Miguel, what's the spectrum of your infra cam? And how many pickles is it?
Thanks a lot Miguel. I did a D70 @ 720nm and I get a lot of colour variation. Did you have to make a preset white balance? And add a preset into lightroom as well.It was done to 760nm, which was recommended to me by the gentleman who did the conversion. As I was interested only in doing black & white infrared photography, he recommended using the 760nm filter, since it has slightly more contrast than 720nm without the longer exposure times a 850nm filter would have required (which would have made handheld photos more difficult, as opposed to tripod ones).
The GX1 has a 16Mp sensor. Not as much dynamic range as the later micro four thirds sensors but, honestly that never bothered me. Before converting it to infrared, it was my main all-purpose camera for several years and I got some very good images with it.
I don't use it that often, but when I do, it always seems to give results which are somewhere between interesting and (to me, at least) surprising.
Here's what the camera + lens (+ LVF-2 external viewfinder) looks like--

The whole thing is surprisingly compact; without the external EVF, it's semi-pocketable.

are all your ir images in monochrome? Because I get purple/green/yellow/orange as well with my conversion.No, Lucien, I never made a preset. I tend to shoot in Jpeg + RAW - for the Jpeg setting I use one of the standard 'picture' options - but when I 'develop' infrared photos in my computer, I almost always wind up using the RAW negative - and processing it individually to taste, usually starting with Lightroom, and then sometimes doing additional tweaking (usually to the contrast) in one of the Nik presets. Since I don't shoot all that much infrared, the randomness of my non-method works fine for me
