Oh my, I felt like the red-headed step child when I started up my computer a little bit ago and came over here to my favorite site:, I had to actually LOG on. I had to stop and think what my username was:! Actually, I am just recovering from a 3 week bout of pneumonia.....go figure huh!!!
But I'm back and I am thinking about trying out infared photography..Something different I know...Here's my question friends, I did some research and found out I am needing a hoya r72 m72 filter for my d90. I also did some research and found out that if I used my d40 I wouldn't have to have the shutter speed way down because it's built in ir filter isn't as good as the ones in the d90. Here's my thing, I'm wondering though, since the d90 is a better camera, and the one I use the most, would it be worth my while to by the ir filter for the d40 and not my d90...and also, I am seeing the hoya's go for up to $100 and up. I don't know if I can rightly justify spending that kind of money just to play for a day. So I went on ebay and there is one for $16.00 and I know, I know, you pay for what you get, but it is a roxsen 72mm ir infared r72-720nm hoya. don't know what all that means, but that is the same numbers as is advertised on the $150 hoyas...Any advice would be greatly appreciated. missed you guys....
