    I'm selling a Panasonic G1 which I purchased here as my first mft camera and then had Livepixel convert to IR 720nm which I loved so much I had my GX1 converted. I took the G1 IR on Safari recently which was awesome.
    Since conversion cost is $250, I'm selling for $350 including conus shipping and paypal. Comes with extra battery, body cap and charger. Photos available for serious buyers.

    Nice image. I have a Nikon D5000 modified to the same IR wavelength. What's nice about a real SLR is that the viewfinder provides a normal color view (unaffected by the IR filter) and then the review image provides the IR-affected result. In my case I have to modify the colors that result because the blues (e.g., of the sky) are a light brown/tan in the unprocessed image. How do you post-process your images (it looks like you chose to convert it to B&W)?

    MFT infrared

    The advantage of MFT is focus is on the sensor. DSLR not using live view focusing have problems with focus. I convert about 3/4 to B&W. The images with a green grass white balance do have slight color which give an old world or platinum feeling like this:
