    The procedure will you guide how to change the filter. I didn't mean converting your camera to IR.

    Can you help me with the changing? Give me a quote please. I don't want to take the risk. Better to let the professionals do.

    How much did you pay for it? Did the seller mention problems such as the faulty lens and fungus?

    Err... Means u got the d70 + 18-70 for $260... hehe quite okay la I think....
    If you fix it at Camera Hospital for $180, total would be $440, still a fair price for the d70 kit I believe

    Student or not student, the camera and the fungus is the same. ;P

    fatigue is already charging way under market and is a great guy. Please do not take advantage of his nice and obliging personality.

    Oh okay...
    But I think one good thing is at least you didn't pay a lot in the first place for the d70.
    If changing the fliter + changing will let u enjoy the d70 for a longer time, then I guess it's worth, and yea the lens if beyond repair, then get another one

    I shall wait for Fatigue first I believe he is a great guy. He is willing to give me the filter as long as I collect from him, and DIY myself. Which is something that I am afraid. Out of 5 things which I dismantle, 5 goes to the rubbish bin.

    You may sell the body away cheaply. Best that you let the potential buyer knows what's wrong with the camera, to be fair to him/her. He might buy it to convert to IR-mod body. There are people who buy lenses with fungus on the cheap for use or send them for cleaning.
