Infrared with Converted G1 and 14-45

  1. I've had my 590nm infrared converted G1 for two weeks and I'm having more fun than I've had in years. What I like most is the ability to shoot in the middle of the day in the worst light and still come away with gorgeous shots. Here's a few from this afternoon.

    Very nice shots! I've also got a G1 that I was thinking of converting and I was wondering where did you have it done. I'm thinking of Spencers Camera since they've gotten good reviews.
  3. Mine was done by Kolarivision in New Jersey. I decided on the 590nm because I seem to prefer color infrared to black & white.

    Number 2 is truly great, does it ever raise?

    I have been looking at places in the UK that convert cameras as I am wanting to convert my GF1, leaning more towards colour conversion than b&W. That might be the filter to go for thanks for sharing.

    I considered this some time ago, had a conversation with someone that sells converted cameras on eBay (infraready) but ended up deciding against it as it was going to be a pretty expensive move for something that would probably only get used a handful of times, and I'm still quite fond of the GF-1.

    In the end I just bought a converted Canon A-series P&S. I've only used it a couple of times and I think I should've gone for a colour conversion over the B&W in hindsight though.
