I like every single one of these. As HazJ says, 'Lovely stuff!'
Be well, stay safe, but most of all, invest in memories

I'm not an IR fan but these have worked really well.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

thanks for looking and comments, much appreciated. Actually bought the camera on this forum Michael for the bargain price of 90 if i remember correctly. Was thinking of an old Nikon D60,70 or 90 and using tamron adaptall lenses which could then be used on both systems but the DLcropped up. If you do a search there are a couple of places that do conversions but you would have to see if they will do Pentax.
IR is a love/hate thing David much like HDR but both can be interesting if used carefully . The colour that can be eeked out from the 720nm is enough to play with for the false colour which actually is not false as it was buried in the image somewhere to start with. 850nm and you are definitely into b&w only.
That tree is pretty awesome Gareth, in the corner of one of the 3 cemetery areas around the Church and you can get some good reflections of both in the canal if you're lucky

Hi Joe. I love them. Now a question. I know you bought your DL ready converted but do you know where and how much to get a K10D I have sitting around would be to get converted??.
CHEERS Vic.
PS. Or anybody else.

Vic, I had a K5ii converted last year here Cost with return carriage was 300 ish

Took 12 weeks partially due to Brexit / longer shipping times / Covid and the extra time to clear customs, I think they initially advised about 8 weeks.

Thanks Chris but no thanks. I'm not 300 interested. And why the customs when they are in Norfolk??.

Because the IR filters are imported from the far east
