Re: E-420 infra red conversion

Hi there Alf!

I have really enjoyed using my IR E-420 and it goes with me most places I take a camera now (provided it's a sunny day!). IR just doen't work well in the gloom though. My camera is full spectrum so I have a filter on the front and use the liveView function to frame and focus (Contrast AF seems to work really well on it).

Don't forget that you will have to pay out for the import duty on the camera - when I've checked on a few photography related things on a customs calculator website they suddenly haven't looked like as much of a bargain!
