All done with the D50 and Kit lens. A Hoya R72 Filter was used.

Very promissing IMO

The camera is light and easy to work with

Benoit G was with me and I think he and I wouldn't have a problem recommending the camera for any type of photography to anyone that loves photography.

Here are the shots ...

Very interesting about the D50 Yves. I don't want one. But glad to hear of the performance.

I want a D100 replacement. Maybe a year would be good for me...lolol $$$$$ Ya know. Or whatever is somewhere inbetween the D2h and D2X.

Only prob with a replacement or advancement of a D100 would, I would guess, around 2500.

Then I would have to wait longer. Darnnnnnnn.

NOOOOOOO no Canon. I am a Nikon Girl. Don't even ask me why LOLOLOL

Just a life dream of a Nikon Slr I guess. Don't even know why that is why it was a Nikon.

ANYWAY......... I love all of your IR images.

I love IR....

Just outstanding Yves! I have to get me a R72 filter now for Kenya in late September. A 77m will be a very cool thing to bring with me I think.

Have you tried the Hoya R72 on the D2x? Wow, do you have me interested in this...thanks, I LOVE these!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

The 2nd and 3rd ones are most definitely my favorites. I'm going to have to try my hand out at using an IR filter, and do some experimenting.

Yves, these are most interesting. How would you describe the 87 vs the 72? I have an 87 (my images before processing are a violet hue) and I was curious what the 72 looked like out of the camera.

thanks!

Really nice Yves. How are you doing your post processing? I have an R72, but haven't gotten the beautiful results you have.

I did a preset WB with the filter on shooting at a green bright patch of grass


All of them were shot in RAW, this gives lattitude to readjust the WB eventually.

1- I opened image in NC 4.3
2- WB box, selected eye dropper and pinned the leaves in the trees
3- Clicked on contrast and brought back to Normal (was low)
4- Used sRGB IIIa, richer colors than sRGB I
5- Checked for highlights and adjusted accordingly
6- Save NEF and Made a 8Bit Tiff copy
7- Opened the Tiff in PSCS (or PSCS2)
8- Did a Auto-level and adjusted opacity
9- Channel Mixer infos:

Red Channel: Brought red to 0 and blue to 100
Green channel: untouched
Blue Channel: Brought red to 100 and blue to 0

adjusted constant to likings

10- Save new image in Tiff
11- Resized to 900 pix
12- Applied sharpening (be careful, not too much, use layers)
13- Save as jpeg value 9 for web (+/- 200kb)

Hope this helps

I haven't tried the 87, only the 72 and the Cokin P007

here is a shot I did with a P007 before Post Processing.
