I have been hearing about (and seeing) some pretty sweet IR shots taken with the Nikon D70. Does anyone know if the Canon DSLRs can do this as well, Or is the IR block filter too strong? I would love to try some IR shots when I get my 350D, so I was just wondering if any 300D or 20D owners knew if this was possible. (yes I know about the 20Da:lol
Thanks

I've done some IR with my 300D without much of a problem, using a Hoya R72 filter, but you cant really handhold the camera due to the longer shutterspeed required to shoot ( without going extremely noisy ) I'd be willing to show some pics if desired.

That would be great!

kb244...I like that image In the info posted on your site it says "simulated IR image". Did that one start out with the Hoya filter or is the simulation "all" in PS?

I have a 20D and two of my lenses (50mm 1.4 and 100mm 2.8 macro) both use 58mm filters. Also, my older Sony DSC F-707 5mpix camera uses the 58mm filter. Think I'll invest in the Hoya R72 and try my hand.

Thanks,
TG (eagerly awaiting more images)

I've done all my IR with my powershot. I have tried it a little with my digital rebel, but as was mentioned, I couldn't hand-hold it and didn't have my tripod with me.

Some of my old IR pictures are here. These were with my A50.

My Cokin 007 P series infrared filter (89B) arrived, from the Filter Connection http://www.2filter.com/cokin/cokinp.html. They shipped same dayI ordered it then it got hung up in customs for a few weeks. I guess it could be a nefarious device :-).

Anyway, with it on the 20D's viewfinder is black, but the camera can see right through it and has no trouble auto-focusing with a f2.8 lens. You just don't know what exactly it focused on. Now just have to wait for some better/warmer weather infrared shots of snow fields don't seem to work too well.

Can't you check focus with the LCD after the picture is taken?
