    Default How to use IR filter

    I just bought a IR filter but seems that its only showing black screen with Nightshot turned on...

    finally got it to work...
    it gotta work with sunlight.
    just took a nice shot of the clouds over my window.

    going to apply for a pbase & post it up for ya guys.

    even with -2.0 to +2.0 exposure the lens still works. just the contrast difference.

    the rest is taken with B&W UV filter & also the IR filter.

    actually is there a diff between using infra red films or filters?

    The IR filter will give "vegetation" a whitish look

    Try taking in B&W and compare the vegetation wif B&W wif IR filter on =)

    I usually take in colour then covert to B&W then colour it in sepia as i like the sepia effect =)

    HAPPY SHOOTING!

    if i set my shutter speed to 1000 how come its having the same effect as using the IR filter? i can't see a thing in the room but can focus under sunlight.
