Taken today with my P850 and a borrowed Hoya R72 infrared filter.
Adjusted in Photochop.



It took 8 seconds to gather the light in for this image, so if anyone's thinking of having a go, take a tripod.


All the best, Paul.

Paul could you have spread the focus area out a little on this shot or was it spread as far as you could get it?? I think the IR gives it a depth of contrast not obtainable with B&W.

Very effective, Paul-

However that soft focus of the P-850 is still fighting you.

You know what-

I love it! It has a fantastic surreal effect and feeling.

What a great experiment for you to post.

Thanks for looking, but I must agree the focus of the camera is total rubbish.

For this shot, I took the filter off and selected a focus zone for the fountain, held half way and screwed the filter back on. The timer was used as well.

I have found that focus is easier at ISO100+ with a wide aperture, if you attempt ISO50 and f8, you will curse the "*$£(^& thing.

Thanks, Paul-

That's good input on how to beat the P-850 at its soft focus games.

TD-

Think twice about the Kodak P-850. I have been very disappointed with mine.
