Here is a new test image with my new Olympus 14-150 micro 4/3 lens. I used the E-PL1 Full Spectrum IR conversion along with a B+W 090 590nm filter! The lens has a really good build and smooth zoom control. I am very pleased with the sharpness and contrast! The image is my standard test location. It is processed as a Faux Color image with a B&W to follow. This camera is the BEST IR system I have used (It is my 9th!)

What is your scheme for False color?

I still remember Infrared Ektachrome producing Red leaves, and a number of photographers using mixes of Wratten filters to get correct skin tones and allow everything else to "go wild". I like to notch out certain bands.

I set up the camera with an IR filter that gives more color like the B+W 041 (570nm) 090 (590nm Goldie) or the 091 (720nm). Make SURE you white balance correctly!!!!!! Processing is a channel swap and adjustment (you can read the details of this on my blog by clicking on it below) using a Photoshop action that you can download directly from my blog. I adjust the channel saturation and hue in the Cyan and Red channel within the action. I then use Viveza from NIK Software to bring out the colors. The ENTIRE process takes a min or two per picture! Easy!
