Sometimes when using a IR filter 630nm to 720nm you will get an occasional image that is simply stunning right out of the camera with nice bronze tones! This is rare but worth the try! The 3 images below are standard processed B&W IR, Standard Faux Color IR Processing and the RAW file converted to PDF and sharpened only. All three images are from the original RAW image.

I think I understand what you mean... the third image, straight from the camera does look very striking (especially the sky and soil), although the bronze colour in the trees of the second rendition is also very good.

Plenty of options!

Cheers

I really like the last one.

Have you removed the filter in front of the sensor?

Yes, it was removed with a clear glass to replace it. This conversion is called the full spectrum and will allow the camera to function both as a normal color and an IR system. You simply place the correct filter on the lens. You can read about it at the blog below!

I like the Raw image. I tend to use Wratten filters to notch the spectrum to get colors, rather than Photoshop. I try to treat the VNIR camera like Infrared Ektachrome.

This is with a Magenta Wratten filter to block Green.

on the modified Coolpix 950. The camera, clear replacement glass for the IR absorbing glass ran ~$100 total. 30 minutes to convert it.
