A couple of weeks back I posted a blog about how I wanted to buy a second EM5 and get it converted to Infrared. Whilst the Infrared GX1 is nice I felt that a second converted EM5 body would fit better with my kit. That way there are less spare batteries and chargers to carry. It’s also easier to remember the menu settings.
Well the conversion is now back with me. ProTech who carried this out had a great service. They spoke to me about the conversion and turned it round in 2 weeks. Although initially I was going to convert to a 720nm filter, I woke up the morning after posting the camera convinced that this was the wrong decision and I switch to a 665nm filter. I don’t know why I changed my mind but it felt right.
All I need now is for it to stop raining and for the sun to come out. Infrared just doesn’t work well without the sun.
I will report back on the performance of the new camera when the weather picks up.
