    I'm very anxious to see those EFKE results barefoot.
    I too purchased some IR film recently. Medium format IR Rollei film (400).
    I'm so looking forward to trying it soon.

    I'm SO Po'd that Kodak HIE is dead. That was the best IR film IMO and 95% of my IR experience is with that film.

    That Fuji Camera looks interesting even though it's a P&S. At 450 USD - it's the same price as the conversion price.

    Seems like this dude knows his digital infra-red - was he a good speaker?

    Thanks for correcting me marko. I am extremely curious about this subject. Now that I am using my K10d almost exclusively and just use my 110 as a backup, I would consider getting it converted. I will not do this until I have another backup, but the 110 can be purchased so cheaply now that I am considering the possibility.

    Anyone know what it costs to get a dslr converted?

    It costs around 450 USD to have a camera modified - but once it's modified it's EXCLUSIVELY an IR camera.

    The cat's out of the bag, now. Either here, in another thread, or with pm's I'm gonna be picking your brain on the way to go about getting the best results with IR film.

    Mark was an excellent speaker. He didn't show us Nikon shooters much love, but it was all in fun. I think it was, anyway. About the only positive had for what he referred to as "the dark side" was that the Nikon D70 was considered by many to be one of the best, if not the best, candidates for IR conversion. Something about it's sharpness. I picked one up on CraigsList Friday. I hope to have it converted within the next month or two.

    Thanks

    I have not done IR since Kodak's HIE. It was AWESOME film. Wonderful grain and a richness to the image that I have not found since.
    I don't want to modify my 40D, as it is my primary camera right now, but would look for a cheapie to convert. What are your recommendations for the best conversion camera?

    Question 2..Will I be satisfied with what a converted camera produces when comparing it to film?

    What I have seen from http://www.lifepixel.com/index.html it looks pretty good. You don't have to use a filter on the camera. You can do it yourself if you are brave.

    That really does not seem too bad. If everything goes right here this summer it seems like it would be worth every penny. It would be extremely fun and great experimentation. It seems like IR has yet to be fully exploited.

    Do you know where to send the camera to be modified?

    Mark Hilliard recommended two labs to us in his talk on Digital IR at our club meeting. One was the lab that you mentioned, Life Pixel in Washington State, and the other was LDP in New Jersey. If I remember correctly, he has used LDP for the majority of his many conversions.
