Thanks Gordon. This was a test to see how I liked using a P&S for IR work. Next I will buy a much better one and convert it to full spectrum. Hopefully I will be able to use it for UV work as well.

These are very clean and detailed, sharp images Charles.

I posted a few other samples but never really broke it down to what I did.

Basicly I took an old Olympus point and shoot that I had and converted it to IR only. Removed the factory glass filter and cut a CC10 gel filter replacement which is needed for focusing. Next I cut to fit a Lee 87C poly filter to fit as well. Put it back together for a live preview IR camera. Its only 3.3mp but it seems to do well even though the pieces I put in are not ideal for this. I may push this further by removing the internal 87c and finding a way to attach filters to the front so I can use it for UV too. Should only need to glue on a screw on filter ring adapter to make that change.

Live preview with manual focusing for IR seems to work well. Thats the main reason I will probably use a better P&S for IR work, instead of a dSLR.

This all started because I had an idea for a shot. Something I have not seen done yet. My D70 died during the IR surgery and Iliah suggested that I get to know the insides of a camera as well.

I then remembered having the P&S and did this over night. It was a long night. :wink:

oooh ... the narrow DoF on the first does it for me. Very nice.
