Should I continue on with IR photography?
« on: January 05, 2010, 06:40:06 PM »
Should I continue on with IR photography if my camera (1D mark 2) is not so sensitive to IR light?

I found out the fact after I bought the filter and I kind of feel bad for not researching beforehand. I don't know if sensitivity plays a huge role in the IQ of the photo. If it does, then does it mean I would always get sub-par IR photos?

Im using a Hoya R72 on a 17-40L lens.

Sample shots: (pardon if my photos are poor, im really a newbie in IR, I dont even know how to properly process yet...)









This is the site I got the fact from: http://dpanswers.com/irphoto_sensors.html

It says the 1D2's average IR sensitivity is 0.7 compared to, let's say, a Nikon d40 which has ave. 6.6 IR sensitivity.

I also wanted to try IR, but using a filter is a big hassle for me.

good thing I met someone selling a cheap IR Filter, I was able to try it first before diving on the more expensive Hoya.

the only suggestion i can give is if you really want to add IR as part of your portfolio, get a cheap camera (most people I know uses a used 1000D) and have it converted to IR.

It will save you a lot of time and you'll enjoy shooting more.

wag mo masyado intindihin ang sensitivity ng camera mo sir.. as long as gusto mo yung output ng mga kuha mo, ok na yun.. learn as you go on with this new endeavor..

anyway, if you think you really like IR photography in the long run, saka ka mag isip kung ano pwede mo pang gawin.. :)

hth!

Doc, why not get an IR converted 1000D? :)

Thanks for the input and encouragement guys!

Actually, I was gonna convert my 30D to IR before but opt to just sell it. I wanted to learn IR through the hard way, through filters. I was actually lured in by the challenge of the intricate techniques involved in shooting IR using filters. I don't want to jump ahead and convert my camera and shoot "just as I normally do" without learning the ropes of old school IR.

I still haven't found the answer to my question, though. Does the sensitivity affect the IQ? I know the sensitivity affects the shutter speed and that shutter speed doesn't affect the IQ (but plays a major role in sharpness when it comes to moving objects); but, Im thinking - could it be different with IR?

I need help from the IR geniuses out there. Thanks! :D

Doc, hindi rin ako expert sa IR pero based sa pics marami nga mga hot spots ah. Have you tried to use a different body, same lens + setting and see if it's the same?

Rick, unfortunately mag isa lang ako mag shoot usually and I only have 1 body. I thought the hotspot was due to the lens and I researched that the 17-40L shouldn't have problems with hotspots.
