Thanks for that link Mike. Works quite well with interesting results. Paul
Hmmm . . . Getting a camera converted for infra red use seems to be the best way to go about getting into infra-red photography. More power to those who can afford to do so. No sour grapes intended there, I'd love to be able to go in that deep myself! I've messed about with a Hoya R72 filter (I hope that's the right name!) but I've never managed to come to grips with the change in the point of focus inherent with IR photography. No matter what I've tried my pics always end up blurred. Do please post some results.

It might be worth buying an old lens to fit on your camera. They used to have a focus shift mark. You focused as normal and then adjusted the focus ring, aligning the focus point to the IR mark. If not shoot at a small aperture with a wider angle lens and the dof should make up the difference.
Get one of the old Nikon or Canon Pro cameras, or any old digital slr, as long as you have a lens for it; then get it converted. The D70 is quite popular for this purpose.
the canon I use was converted but its not cheap !
Mike thanks for the link err Ill have a try...maybe
I've been thinking of converting my 10D to infrared, but the places who do the conversion seem very expensive, the one mentioned in the ePz article now want £250+VAT, and the only other company I've found want £240 (dslrastromod.co.uk).
Does anyone know of any other companies which do this, or have experience of attempting it themselves ?
Given my 10D only cost ~£120 on eBay I could try the conversion myself and replace the camera if it all went horribly wrong a few times and still cost less ...
