The camera isn't ruined if you decide you don't like the infrared conversion. You should get your original filter back with your converted camera, so you can always revert back to the normal camera. Of course I have no idea where I put mine when I got my D70 back, but if I knew where it was I could convert it back. There is a do it yourself tutorial on the lifepixel site.

Before I had my D70 converted I used a cokin filter,

just be aware that this filter is dark resulting in long exposures, so you need a tripod. The converted camera has relatively normal exposure times and can be done handheld.
