Just got my Infrared filter and took this picture. The question is - why is it so orange? All I have done is resize it - but this camera seems to be VERY biased towards red... any ideas on what I could do to fix?

Camera - Panasonic FZ1v2
Filter - Hoya 72 IR, Hoya UV

From EXIF info:

White balance: Auto
shutter speed: 1.3 (APEX)
Time: 10/25
f-number: 2.8
Aperture: 3.0(APEX)
Focal length: 4.6
ISO100
Format: Y Cb Cr -
Color Space: sRGB

BTW I did take some sample pics at a slower shutter spead and some at ISO400 and got very similar results.

Thanks,

Laurie

Laurie - Set your white balance manually to the ambient light through the r72; ie, with the filter attached. Also set your ev compensation to -1/3 or -2/3 and the iso to 200 to get the shutter speed faster. Lots of bright sunlight needed.

That did it! The sun has disappeared - but I can tell that the red/orange is gone.

Here's stupid question #2 - for white balance, if I use a filter, should I always do the balance in manual mode? For example if I use a polarizing filter - should that be done in manual mode through the filter or one of the other preset settings?

Thanks,

Laurie

Check out this link and should help you.

If you have any more question, most of them are already answered or asked about several times over...just do a search if you look up next to "My Account" and that should help you out a lot.

Thanks - actually in my defense I did google and search the forums before giving up and asking

I have no idea why that thread didn't come up though - should have.

hard to believe that you googled and didn't come up with anything.

All that I learned for infrared photography came from going through pages and pages of google and finally finding brad's action to help me out.
