    This is to share with everyone my two casual IR shots using my G3 attached with 45-175x and Hoya R72 filter. The good thing about mirrorless camera with EVF is that you do not need to remove the IR filter when you focus the shot. :biggrin:

    Sorry that I had problem linking the pics just now.

    How do I upload pics onto this forum?

    Interesting, thanks for the pointer. Thought the last time Panny's could do IR was way back in the days of the FZ1. I'll need to give it a try.

    I tried fz18 but quality was not pleasing. I tried fuji f31fd, image was mediocre.

    When I got my d90, I dunno how to use it for IR mainly because I couldn't custom WB with the filter on. And so I gave up.

    Now that I have G3, I could continue my IR adventure.
     
  5. How does one describe the night vision mode (oter than grainy) on the Nikon D5100. Is it IR or some super high ISO?

    Thanks for this sin77. Have you tried the IR filter in monochrome mode?
