Hi Ripper!
Thanks for the compliment :)

For normal IR shots, there is a reddish tint.
The pics are usually converted to grayscale.
To obtain the 'green' on plants effect, I'd used the 'One Touch White balance' which is available on C700UZ.

Try IR! Its a great form of photography! ;)

Hi dtaytc, I bought my R72 filter from Fotoguide which is closed down already, you can try and ask John 3:16 at Funan. They had helped me to bring in a Hoya hood, so I think it shouldn't be a prob.

Hi Renegade, for most of the DCs, there are a few settings of WB. For e.g. Auto, Presets and Manual. For olympus C700UZ, the Manual WB is called 'One Touch White balance'. To make use of it, screw on your IR filter, set the camara to manual WB mode. Depending on your camera, it will ask you to snap a photo to set the white balance. Do it outdoors in bright sunlight. You can shoot a piece of white paper or just shoot on the clear sky.

Hi dtaytc,

I think it's better for you to purchase the filters directly as its near the financial year end and I'm busy with work....

I personally own the R72 only, so can't help you to compare. But from the website seems that RM90 requires a higher exposure. And if I don't remember wrongly, RM90 is more expensive than R72. (probably due to the x-ray effect thingy ;p )

Regarding the colour of IR photos, there are some who like's it in b/w, while there are some who likes the coloured versions. I personally feel that if you want to get b/w IRs, take it in colour mode first, you can always convert it to b/w later. To get the colour "effects", pls see my reply to Renegade.

Don't worry, when I started using it, the photos turns out as dark red and always blur.... only when I learned more abt it, figured I had to use tripod...

Btw, what DC are u using?

Hi Coolzzz, how much did u pay for the RM90? what size is it? If it is 52mm, maybe we can swop and try them out to see the effects. :D

Can u post some RM90 samples?

Cheers!
