Its very frustrating to use the Hoya R72 infrared filters with the FZ1 because all you get is a very red and dark image. Searched around and found this site...

http://www.outdooreyes.com/photo94.php3

It tells you step by step guide how to set up your camera for the IR filter. I thought you just put it on and get gorgeous pictures....NOT!!!!

Download the Photoshop Action and simply apply it after you have taken the shot. Now go out there and take some shots.

I hope I have helped out some guys here who where equally as frustrated with IR photography. And don't forget...its very very very cheap to get such crisp and out of this world pictures. The Hoya R72 cost easily less than 50 bucks (around 35$)

Very cool! I'll have to try that PS action. Can you post the image (1st one)before using the action for demo? Thanks.

here is the original file.

The process that I put this file through is as following,

1-Clean out the noise with Neat Image.
2-Use the IR Action
3-Then Use Unsharpen mask at 500% amount, .05 radius (pretty standard for everything almost) and 0 threshold.

here is the original file before the process

Thank you SO MUCH for this post. I got the Hoya filter a couple days ago. I only clicked a couple test shots - and it was something less than I had expected. I will check this out in detail.

It's like you read my mind with this post. Your IR pics are terrific. Hopefully soon, I will have the same results.

what is cool about the camera setup, is that when one first attaches the IR filter, overything looks dark Red on the viewfinder. After setting the white balance with the filter on, then you can really see everything the way it was meant to be.

Don't quote me... but I "think" you can only use an IR filter with an FZ-1 because it doesn't have an IR blocking coating that the rest of the Lumixes have.

Got that PS action, Rezajune, thanks for the link... Now to get a nice bright day, and some time to shoot.
