Is this even possible? I have a friend who has an Olympus c-8080, and he has taken some interesting IR shots. I was thinking of picking up some IR filters, but I have no idea if these cameras are even capable of such a thing.

yes camera is capable of shooting IR, just be prepared for slow shutter speed, preferably use a tripod, IR filter cuts out a lot of light, pictures done in IR are very good, use B&W mode for best results

Thanks, Captain. I have pretty shaky hands anyways, so most of my night shots are on a tripod. I'll probably go ahead and grab the filters soon. I want to get a wide angle lens first.

Yes, by all means. Get the wide-angle. You'll be very pleased.
