Keep as a back up or turn into infrared camera?

Guess it depends on how you use your camera(s), if you need a backup more than a camera for ir. If you need to be able to depend on your camera as a paid photographer you might want to have a backup. Maybe it depends too on how new your 5D is, if it's likely or not that you'd have problems with it and need an immediate backup.

I can see with some of the type photos you've done how you'd be interested in ir. Do you have any older SLRs that you could use as backup? Or is there someplace nearby that you could go rent a camera if you needed a backup right away?

Robbie maybe we need and ir thread! - or one for specialty cameras, special effects, etc. There aren't too many of us using the Film section, we could 'share'. Maybe that section could be for film, ir, fisheye, etc. - Film/Specialty or something.

There lots of Ir images that is posted here,look in the 'Clouds' thread for some.


Thanks, now could someone actually answer my question..those who shoot infrared do you shoot often? Often enough to make it worth while to change the camera.

Oh and what's the harm in posting some images here in this thread?

It`s called 'thread crapping' which isn`t nice,I won`t go there.It depends on 'you' that`s why MJ
is asking for the question,2 out 3 don`t use it often but I do.Your question was answered even before you asked it.


Alright I'm sorry I missed that part....the answer to my question.

Ok,apology accepted,i`m sorry too.Ir isn`t for everyone,the pbase link has unprocessed Ir images
if you want to download and try to process it...processing work flow link there as well.
As for Ir thread,there are so many started before plus only a few is interested in Ir...
for Ir info look here... www.photographytalk.com/forum/photograph...d-photography#114014

MJ, I,m just new here but I already saw your interest in IR photography. I like IR too and have several converted cameras :) . They work like a regular camera.
I started out with a Hoya 72 IR filter but got fed up using a tripod on account of the long exposure time.

Your 10D is a perfect camera to have it converted.
You have a very nice website and IR will only broaden your photography horizon.

If I had a 2nd camera, I would vote for backup, but that is because I am not into shooting infrared.

OK all that said- I want the infrared, however do you think it would even be worth converting the 10D as it is only 6 mgp? I would not be able to enlarge any works above an 8x10 maybe an 11x14 in RAW.

Spend the money or sell and save for a better body to convert?

Wonder how much you'd get selling it? - that might help you decide how much you'd get to spend! (KEH you might know has an online quote feature).

I must have not ever looked at your website - you have some beautiful photos - some of those orchid photos (close ups) made me think of Georgia O'Keefe's paintings. Some are stunning and others are good but not as exceptional, wondered if you'd thought about editing your total number of images - I found it a lot of orchids to look thru. I wonder if you could price them higher, the quality is good enough I think. Guess that varies depending on where you sell them.

Well I got this off topic enough for now - sounds like you want to go for an infrared conversion, you could get some cool images I imagine.

MJ I'm glad that you decided to go IR.
The question is now how often did you fire the shutter. Most cameras are good for up to 100.000 times.
It would be a shame to get your camera converted and then the shutter would break.
Just something to keep in mind.

Rob.
