I went to one of the largest camera photography stores in Ontario and asked about a filter for infrared photography, and was told that for digital, this work was done in Post Processing and had nothing to do with an actual filter when taking the photo? As I am a begineer, would like to know what the options are???

Thanks for the comments.

Annie - There is still resistance to the digital revolution in the camera community. I wonder if it's a matter of photo purity or pure laziness.It'snotvery complicated. The ccdsensor has simply replaced film. While thishas resulted in somenew basic lens designs,many of the add-on filters and converters that worked well withfilm lens systemsdojust as wellwith digital.

Infrared lightisone case where the digital sensorrequires different treatment (vs film)in the form of ir blockers (aka hot mirrors) that keep ir light fromreaching the sensor. The strength of the ir blocker determines the ir sensitivity of the camera. Most digicams have strong ir blokers that render the camera useless for ir photography.The fx01 (and fz1) happens to be among the few that are ir sensitive.

Infrared add-on filters such as the hoya r72 used herefilter out all BUT ir and near-ir light. Post processing can give you somethingsimilar but IMO it really isn't close.Having used the ir filter, it is then possible to get different effects with PP. Some minor PP was done to enhance these shots. Here is a shot straight from the fx01 and r72.
