Looking to convert an older E-PL3 to IR, with a internal filter probably from Life Pixel.

Any advice on which filter to go for. Am I right in thinking that if I go for the Supercolour (590nm) one, I can then use a Std 720nm filter on the lens if I want to?

My preference has always been for a full spectrum conversion. This is what I have on my modified GF2 and allows me to play with a wide variety of filters a 25A (590nm) is my most used, but I also switch to things like BG3, or #47 both of which give blues as well as the IR. An effect not possibly with a more restrictive conversion. There have even been occasions I've used it without a filter for more normal looking shots like these

Both show changes from the IR component but they're more subtle than a 590... :)

I got my PM2 converted from an ebay vendor. I cant recall but I think it was full spectrum conversion. I use a 720nm filter on the front end of my lens most of the time.
