Hi :)
When I say "semi-simulation", I mean that this filter stack only puts IR in the red channel, it doesn't do a true 'transposition' of IR > Red, Red > Green, and Green to Blue like EIR/Aerochrome does. So for example, visual red doesn't change to yellow as it does with EIR (look at the tail lights).
However, on the other hand, you can do a quick in camera custom white balance with this filter stack, yes even with a Nikon, and you get these images on the back of your camera.
What you see is what you get. These images have not been post processed. They are SOOC.

The stack is slightly slow, for example, these are shot at approximately the same exposure time/settings: ISO 200, f/11, 1/30s. D7000 UV/IR, 18-55mm VR.

This is a filter stack using Lee Scuba Blue #729 (polyester film filter) + Schott KG3 2mm glass filter. The 729 filter is cheap, easy to find, large sheet. The KG3 is a little harder to find, but could come in handy for similar stacks.

Hrommagicus (SOOC), and other filters (SOOC). For anyone not familiar with the SOOC acronym, it means 'straight out of camera', in other words, no post processing, and it looks the same in live view.

Hrommagicus is a SOOC filter stack I am playing with.
The KG3 stacked with the BG3 is interesting. Starting to try KG with other filters I have always used alone. Pretty interesting stuff, KG, much more useful than I had ever imagined.
I have KG1, KG3, and KG5 to play with so far, and the sweet spot seems to be KG3 for everything I have tried so far.

A couple Hrommagicus panoramas.
All the photos in this topic were shot in a filbert orchard area.

Nice work Steve, I'm sure there will soon be a filter for sale on ebay riveling that KOLARI EIR simulating filter ;-)
What will it be named, the "Hrommagicus EIT filter" so I can find it and make a comparision?

Waiting for the train (Amtrak).
This one below illustrates how the visual red is removed by the filter. See how the big round flashing red railroad crossing lights are black, and also the red paint on the crossing gate. See how the distant hillside foliage is red.

Phil, Thank you very much for your comment, I appreciate it.
It is a fun filter. I want to do some shots with it incorporating more people and things and less foliage to see how that looks.
It is not true EIR/Aerochrome transposition, but it is fun, and I spend no time working with post processing. I am enjoying it.
Thanks again.
