Well done to post the day after!
Certainly some good compositions, but in general a bit too grainy for my taste.


Thanks. Yep, extreme grain was always a 'feature' of Kodak HIE. I could have reduced it in software as below but decided to present it as it would have been pre digital.

Here's a few quick and dirty de-grained versions

Thanks, I like them better now

Of all the digital advances to date, I like digital IR most. Traditional colour film IR was just too unreal to be interesting for long (I shot Kodak's Ektachrome version for a while but grew bored with it).
B&W film infrared was a wonderful technique but suffered from high grain and relatively low resolution. To get a great B&W infrared, that would still look 'great' enlarged to 20x24", required a 4x5 camera.

Modern digital IR has changed that and allows a similar sense of 'altered reality' in colour as existed in B&W but with high resolution and low noise and with great choices for artistic interpretation.

These images inspire me and I'm close to sending off my A7R to be modified for IR. It's bloody expensive from New Zealand as exchange rates, taxes and significant freight costs multiply the end cost; but what's a very used A7R worth nowadays anyway? It's pretty much un-tradeable at a shop.

Thanks for showing these, they move me inexorably closer to that decision.

Panmure Basin bicycle ride

1. Bad film

Old Film. by Michael J Breen, on Flickr
Rollei IR400 film. This was sold as outdated stock but was only a couple of years out of date so I thought it would be OK.
I got just two good shots from this roll and I had to work on the scan of one of those for about half an hour removing marks so that it could be useful.

2. Mangrove Swamp Jetty

3. Mangrove Swamp Jetty (another angle)

Panmure Basin bike ride by Michael J Breen, on Flickr

Fuji G690 medium format rangefinder.
Fujinon 100mm f3.5 lens
Rollei IR400 film

Well there ya go then!

I sent a lens away to get repaired and dropped my A7R into the box as well for a sensor clean.
Then I had a brainwave and asked the repairer if they could do a full spectrum conversion on my camera; they said yes, I said yes. The next day I get an invoice and the job is done: Camera cleaned and serviced, UV/IR internal filters removed and clear glass installed etc. Even better, it cost me about 85% of the cost the American companies charge AND that includes freight back.
The US return freight would have more than doubled the cost so, all up, I've saved maybe 60%!

I have some 720nm and 859nm IR filters plus deep reds so I'll start with those. Ordered some IR/UV cut off filters for visual colour shooting.

I should be shooting with it next week.

Kiwis can contact Greg at Photo and Video for inquiries teaboy@photo.co.nz
