Thanks, Doug.
Yes, I add halation, grain and contrast. It's sometimes tough to balance it all, the highlights can get quickly blown out.
Having a 720 camera is indeed the most versatile option. The colors aren't garish like at lower wavelengths and the B&Ws have excellent contrast.
My first IR camera was 850nm, and it made great images. I just didn't have the processing experience I do now, and I know that B&W is my preferred look for infrared.
I'm always after the Kodak HIE look, so figuring out how to do it well is half the fun.


I had my Sony a7IV converted to full-spectrum by LifePixel after shooting with cameras that had been converted to one wavelength. And I use the Kolari magnetic drop-in filters for different wavelengths. I can also use a hot mirror filter to use the camera for shooting color. For me, full-spectrum gives me the maximum versatility (590nm to 850nm, plus hot-mirror for color). I enjoy both false color and b&w IR. YMMV.

Great system, the drop-in. A few years ago I would have tried it. One minor drawback is having to use only cameras that accept drop-in filters, none of which are on my preferred list. YMMV, indeed.

Late to the show.
I have a 590 nm conversion and a 720 nm conversion. I have never shot with 850 nm cutoff.
That said, even for BW I could argue against the higher cutoffs as providing less info to work with, although with perhaps a slightly different look and a more purist option.
Below are some 590 nm conversions into BW to illustrate what is possible. Last was toned for mood following conversion to BW.

Nice postings spyderphil! Nice to see another 720nm IR XT2...what lens are you using there?

Here's another from a different part of CO...also with my 720nm XT2 IR converted + 35mm/1.4 manual

Thanks Gabe. I was using the 16-80mm which worked well for IR. I shoot Sony mainly so switched from Fuji to Sony for IR as well. I found 720 a good choice for IR B&W - gives great tones as in your shot. I now have a 830 A7R which produces deep blacks and lots of contrast. I miss the Fuji though!

I had my GR II converted from 720nm to 850nm. I didn't like it as much, so it went back to 720nm.
A bit of an expensive lesson, especially seeing as I was doing alright with 720. But now I know what I like, and for me, the 720 is best.
A recent visit to an old riverside homestead, using the 850mm camera, yielded these:

Recent outing at mid-day when the summer storm broke for a bit and allowed the sun to make an appearance. It was hot and muggy as is typical this time of year here...but this year is markedly hotter than usual. Anyways it made for good IR shooting conditions at least

I didn't know there was a thread about IR images here, thanks Gabe13 to post the link on the Voigtlander 27 thread.

Here are a few shots done with Fujifilm cameras, full spectrum X-E3 or/and X-T20 850nm with mainly the Xf 23 f1.4 R Mk1.

I am planning to convert my Nikon D810 to IR and I am battling between the 720nm or 850nm.

Kolari and Lifepixel offer an "Advanced Multi-Layer AR Coated Filter Smudgeproof" for $100/150 additional,I understand it gives some extra dust/fingerprints protection than the "Standard Uncoated Filter".

Does any have additional information of the benefits of the Multi-Layer filter and if it is worth the extra cost?

For me, it wouldn't be worth $100-150 extra. It depends on how carefully you handle your sensor and whether you know how to clean it when it's dusty or needs wiping. I use a sensor blower for dust and a sensor swab or smudges or smudges. This is truly a case for "YMMV".

Thank you Joe for the feedback, I know very well how to protect the sensor and also the dry/wet cleaning of it. I don't see another extra benefit of this filter and for the cost it is not worth it.

I really appreciate your comment.
