"D7000 IR Capability"

Can D7000 take ir pictures without actually converting it to ir.
In other words use an IR filter, tripod and long exposure. I posted a similar question in the IR Forum but didn't get any comments.

Hi Steve,
I have used a 720 nm IR filter with some success. In full sunlight this requires exposures in the 3-4 second range. This filter still let's some near IR colours through and you have to do the channel swapping in post. There is an example picture in my gallery of the results. I have also tried a 850nm IR filter which blocks more of the red spectrum but exposures using this filter were into the 2 minute range, but this was on a cloudy day. Still waiting for a sunny day to try it properly but it is constant rain and flooding in Cornwall at the moment. Hope this info helps.

Hi Martin. Yes, this is very good information. Now I know that the D7000 can do it. Can you please let me know which filters you are using. I liked your picture of Boating Lake.
Thanks.

I just bought cheap filters off EBay, not knowing what to expect. But the results we good. For the sake of 7-10 GBP per filter it gives okay results at a cheap price. Good to give it a go and if IR is something you enjoy then you could then invest in better filters or get a second hand cheaper body and have it converted into IR.

Thanks. What brand filters did you buy? I need a 77mm size. The ones I've seen new (Tiffen or Hoya) go for about $140 at B and H or Adorama.

As in the post above Steve, cheap non branded ones to give it a try, 7-10 GBP works out roughly between USD5-8 per filter, try these first then get the more expensive ones if its what you enjoy doing.

I just bought one on Amazon for $14. It's coming from China so it may take a while to arrive.
