    Interesting effect eh ? I've got several more from this morning too - this was the first (and smallest) one I did.
    I'll tell you what though, an infrared filter is a weird beastie to shoot with. Exposures in bright sunlight of over a minute, you can't see through the viewfinder. All fun and games really.

    cool! try it in a city scene where you have people moving around...very surreal.
  • David de Groot said:
    Next time I'm in the city on a bright day I'll do just that :)

    Cool stuff David. I didn't think the 400D was well suited to infrared, but it looks like it does OK. Out of interest, where did you get the filter and how much was it? I was looking at the B+W IR filter for around $100.

    Seen on my Flickr home page. (?)
  • David de Groot said:
    Well it's probably not as good as a Nikon D70 for IR, but yes, it works reasonably well. You just need some pretty long exposures as I think the 400D's built in UV/IR filter is cutting down on the transmission through to the sensor.

    I got mine off a forum (PotN) for $25 (AuD) - bargain :)

    Neat eh ? Can't say it'll make any masterpieces, but it's fun to play with.
