Life Pixel

  1. I've got a question about Life Pixel conversions. It looks like you can do either an IR conversion (they replace the hot-mirror with an IR filter) or a UVIR conversion (they replace the hot-mirror with an all pass filter). I was originally thinking of having an IR conversion. I do a lot of IR stuff and being able to hand hold would be really cool. I would like to do UV too, so maybe there's some utility to the UVIR conversion. I know some folks here have some experience with the IR conversion. Anyone have experience with the UVIR conversion? Or better yet both? Pros? Cons?

    I have ordered both IR and full spectrum for my old D70. Time to play with alternative light sources. :wink:

    If you do just the IR conversion then you won't need filters and . With full spectrum you would need filters to pass only IR, visible, or UV. Which means you must setup your shot and then put a filter on and shoot.
