A small gallery of Infrared Photoghraphy

Your possibilities with a converted camera are endless. In each photo there's a feeling of finding something new that excites and involves us in a dreamlike environment, where the usual is suppressed to give place to enhanced, new, and until now unknown colors and shapes. Try it, you'll like it.

Romulo "The experience of many Nikonians has shown this -the D70- to be one of the best DSLRs for the task, if not the very best so far." This statement is taken out of context. For shooting with an unmodified DSLR, the D70, D70s and D40 were the best of-the-shelf Nikon bodies for UV AND IR because the ICF covering the sensor was inefficient at blocking UV and IR light. Once modified their performance was little different from other Nikon bodies of similar age. In fact the D200 modified was better than the D70 in terms of resolution, noise and several other aspects. While the D70 is still a good IR camera it's performance is far behind that of the newer breed of modified Nikon bodies which offer better noise performance (higher ISO options), larger LCD, higher resolution, etc and last but not least LiveView (for more accurate IR focusing). I have shot IR and UV with the D70 and D40 (both unmodified), D70 UVIR modified, D200 IR modified, D200 UVIR modified (also the Fuji S3Pro UVIR and Sigma Foveon) and now shoot with a D800 IR modified. The only advantage of the D70 today, is that you can pick one up for around $50-100 making it a good intro DSLR for IR. However it will cost you more to have it converted so look for one already modified for around $150.
