    I've eventually got round to start to write a review / tutorial on Infra-red converted cameras.

    I was planning on giving a review on my findings and what options are available.

    What questions would you like me to address?

    I assume that this would be aimed at those just considering whether to convert. Before I started, I had several questions and had to search far and wide to find all or most of the answers:

    a. What companies offer the conversion service - I only identified ACS in the UK but are there others in the UK or elsewhere?
    b. What camera is suitable - spec, age, condition?
    c. Likely cost?
    d. How long does it take?
    e. How will focussing be after conversion?
    f. What internal IR filter choices are there and what are the pros and cons (720nM or 840nM)
    g. Will I need a custom White Balance?
    h. Can I produce colour and B&W IR images?
    i. Will my existing lenses be suitable for IR?
    j. Couldn't I just produce the same effect using Photoshop?

    Mike, thanks but I am not looking for the answers for myself having answered them some time ago. It is just that, if Nick is writing a tutorial, this is the sort of questions a newcomer to IR might ask. A tutorial would be useful because, though thew information is out there, it is not in one place.

    The links were great Dave - I've written the tutorial - at least in draft - just need the images to go with it - not ideal time of the year for IR!
