I've been using my C-8080 for InfraRed for a while and it works quite well.

I'm thinking of upgrading it with an E-330. Has anyone any experience of using the E-330 with an IR Filter?

Also has anyone put an IR Filter on an E-3 yet?

Thanks

I'm waiting for a sunny day to try out my IR filter with my E-400.

Have you seen the IR pages on Andrzej Wrotniak's site

Hi

I read the Wrotniak article on IR and am happy to admit that it inspired me to buy an IR filter for my E510, like Ellie though I am still waiting for the weather to cheer up before giving it a go.

Out of interest the pic below was taken recently on the South Coast, I processed it from a RAW file in CS3 and applied the IR filter contained within the CS3 package, what do you think? (yes I know it's cheating......:))

That's an idea, by taking a couple of shots of the same scene, one with the IR filter on the camera and the other without, then putting the PS filtered image side by side and see what the difference is and what looks the best.

As was said, as soon as the weather gets better we can get out and try all this stuff. Ok I know IR is still there on rainy days and the camera is weather sealed, but I'm not so I'll wait until it get a bit warmer and there are more leaves on the trees.

Pity you couldn't get someone to get wet for you in your picture (strangers are so uncooperative)

Cheers

Yes it would have been nice, I am sure volunteers would have been few and far between, I think that Ellie (E400) and myself (E510) have to be a bit more careful as of course neither our cameras (or me, can't speak for Ellie) are weather sealed:D
One up for the E3:)

Just tried an infrared filter (Cokin P filter) on my E400 and as very disappointed. Pictures far underexposed and very very very noisy.
Any ideas welcome.
Has anyone tried on an E3?

There is a host of information for those interested in infrared on the following
link :- http://heim.ifi.uio.no/~gisle/photo/ir.html Now is the time to get wise on the on the subject with spring on its way.
Spring is one of the best times for infrared when there is fresh green foliage on the trees. Let's look forward to all the forthcoming results.

I have a Hoya 58mm IR R72 filter and attempted to use it with my E-510 and several lenses. I only played with it a little bit and I was not happy with the results.

Have just tried with an E3 and posted on that part of the forum.

Have just uploaded example of infrared photo in architecture taken with the E500 and forgot to mention exposure setting. It was 2 seconds @ f4.5
I have had good results using the Olympus C-2020 with Hoya R72 fitted.
This camera has a less sensitive i/r fited in the camera. Interesting reading at

I will atempt to show example from the 2020 via an attachment

Oooh, that's nice.

Did you use an EV setting as well?

I have checked the EXIF readings on Bournemouth gardens and the settings
were 1/100 sec. @ f2 with a speed rating of iso 100. Feel sure I would have used apeture priority.Thanks for the compliments.

Oops, is that in Bournemouth? :o We rarely go that way, maybe we should
