Hi! I ran into a site called www.lifepixel.com
that does "Infrared Conversion" on Digital SLRs. Although I have NO knowledge at all about what infrared conversions are or how they work, I liked the sample pictures they had on their site. They also say this is better than putting infrared filters on your lens.
So, I was wondering if it is a good idea to send your camera to them and have them convert it. I just a bought a 40D (my wife's actually) and I don't want to risk sending it to them.
Does it affect the camera's functionality? Will I still be able to take normal pictures or will it always have the infrared effect on all pictures?
I am thinking of getting a used XT or XTi and send it to them for conversion. Will this be enough for shooting infrared pictures? How about a 5D?
