    Do you have to permanently modify a D3 to get infrared. I dont think that I could stomach modifying a $5k camera.
     
  2. No, you can use filters to accomplish IR. I certainly wouldn't modify a D3 if I owned it.

    I'd do it.
     
  5. I was simply trying to tell the original poster that I would not modify the D3. Using a filter would be far better even if it did take a long exposure. My advise is always to buy a less expensive D100 or D70 if he wants to have a camera modified. Guess I did not explain that well.
     
  6. I tried a IR with the D3. Metering w/o filter, then I had to add 10 stops of exposure to get a useable frame with filter (D300 is the same).
     
  7. Good to know Charles, not having a D3 I had no idea. Again, I was just saying not to have a D3 modified.
