    You're very welcome, John - the more awareness of what's possible with IR the better

    Thanks for the reply Ian - it's a really interesting effect!

    ..I'm seriously considering the idea of offering an IR converted body to the site's Olympus gear hire stock.

    It will probably be a Pen E-PL1 to start with as this could be used by both Four Thirds lens users (with an adapter) and Micro Four Thirds lens users. But if the service is popular enough I may well source an IR-converted E-System DSLR body as well.

    Can I just take a straw poll to see if anyone here would be interested in hiring such a camera body?

    Incidentally, we do have continental hire customers, but there is an extra cost to the shipping. Nobody has hired from the USA yet, probably because of the high shipping costs.

    So what do you think?!

    Hi Ian,

    I would definitely be interested in hiring an IR E5

    Regards Simon

    Did the IR camera 'see' through the tinting of your glasses, or are the glasses photochromic and the sun had gone in so they went clear on the IR image?

    Hi Ian - hope you don't mind if I also add a link to my Introduction to IR Tutorial thread, which really starts at post 33 here...

    http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthre...?t=7269&page=3

    Enjoy.

    IR is a superbly interesting subject folks, and I'd strongly suggest getting out there and trying it.

    I would just like to remind everyone that we have an IR-converted Pen E-PL1 available for hire. Spring is a great time for IR photography with new greenery and spring flowers everywhere.


    Normal colour


    Infra red mono


    Infra red colour

    There is a good thread on this subject, including a link to an article on IR photography here:

    looking good this - I used to favour 2150K on the E520 for IR, but that was through the blocking filter as well.

    Who's first in line to hire the new beast?

    Looks like blue channel noise is making its self known! Will attempt to address that next time.

    I've noted that some like to use a very low colour temperature as a starting point (easy to do if you are shooting RAW). This one was set to 2100K:


    False colour


    Mono

    Once again, swapped the red and blue channels and then adjusted to my preference using colour balance, saturation, levels, etc.

    Not had much time to play today, but here are a couple taken with the converted Olympus Pen E-PL1 this morning:


    False colour version


    Mono version

    I still have a lot to learn!

    Plenty of colour in the images from this camera.

    Apart from swapping red and blue, the only other thing I did was adjust the white balance, by sampling one of the leaves as a grey point in Levels.

    Here's my go at swapping the red and blue channels from the original RAW file:
