Hi....

Sorry for the very basic question, but i got quite confuse with this since many ppl in this forum mention that we need to modify the camera to be able to take IR photo.
But on the other hand, i found some website that mention we can take IR photo by just using IR filter (without the need to modify the camera)

So my question is, do we really need to modify the camera ? or can we just use IR filter ??
And what will be the different in result if we only use IR filter ?

Thank you very much in advance for the advice :):)

You really should ask this in the IR forum, or do a little reading online.

Quick answer: If you only use an IR filter, you will need LONG shutter times. A modded camera will be better as you can use "normal" shutter speeds.
