The sun is out at last which means it’s no good for Landscape Photography. But it is good for Infrared Landscape Photography. Yesterday I went up to the Yorkshire Dales in order to try out my new Olympus EM5 which I had converted to Infrared.
The conversion was completed by ProTech in the UK and used a 665nm filter. My other camera is a Panasonic GX1 with a 720nm filter and was converted by ACS. If you are wondering why I didn’t use ACS again, it’s not because they did a bad job it just it took them a couple of months. A friend had used ProTech and was very pleased with the service. So too am I.
The results from the EM5 are just as good as I hoped. Whilst I am still finding my way with the 665nm filter in terms of post processing, it does look quite promising. Here is a first image from the top of Malham Cove. I hope you like it.

Are you focusing manually? I have a camera that is converted, and I find that the IR tends to focus incorrectly if I do auto focus. Thus I always manually focus. It is possible for the place doing the conversion to adjust the focus for one lens, but I don’t stay with one lens, so manual focus works for me.
Hi Jim, I am focussing automatically. The Micro 43 cameras don’t have the same issues with IR focus as DSLRs. In fact they are a joy to use for IR due to this, touch screen focus and live view.
Only read this AFTER I wrote to you.
You must think I’m a right dunderhead!
Still, shows I appreciate all you do.
Don’t worry Roger. But good timing eh?
