  2. I like it! FWIW, I'd straighten the horizon and crop to just past the edge of the large tree on the left.

    Astounding shot - trees look so great in the winter ;-)

    Wouldn't mind a quick summary of the gear (esp the nm of the IR filter and whether you use a modified m43 ?) and what kind of PP (if any) you apply ?

    Glad you like it, I used an un-modified GF1 with the 14-45mm lens, fitted with a 720nm filter. Post processing in Lightroom 3 using the Selenium Tone preset.

    Thanks, the park is on a slope and straightening the horizon gives the picture as serious case of 'the leans'

    Do you have the exposure information? ISO setting and shutter speed?

    I know there is IR leakage on the EP2 from looking at the Wii LED bar. I have not put a visible cut filter. I do keep the IR filters on some of the lenses for the EP2, easy to switch from it to the M8.

    It was shot at ISO 400 f10 and a 2 second exposure, it was into the sun, so was quite bright

    That is great news, then I can also do IR (can't afford a 2nd camera for IR only)!!!

    How about taking shot of comparable scene with and without IR filter and post just out of camera results?
    - It you use tripod then you might even be able to do some tricks with partly combining the shots

    That looks really sweet. Eventually I'll have to try it too.
     
  9. The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II seems to be able to do IR right out of the box, without mods, unlike my E-3, which just shoots a black frame.

    This was with a Wratten #87 filter, hand-held tight to the front of the lens. This is soft and fuzzy because I was using a cheap focal reducer wide open. I look forward to playing with it on quality lenses.
