    Default DSLR conversion to infrared

    Hi guys/girls

    There are some very old threads about this, but no information there as to if there are perhaps infrared camera conversion available in South Africa. I know Outdoorphoto used to have a converted D200, and would like to have one of my old D300 bodies converted. From what I could find on the web, people got some good results from them. Removing the IR filter on the sensor seems to be a risky, but do-able, but sourcing a replacement filter to cut of RGB and having to remove the sensor cleaning element is stopping me from trying it out.

    Any thought/ideas?

    Other than some factory conversions, I don;t know of any private ones around, or know of someone who had done this in recent years.

    This type of photography is much more popular in the USA and Europe. There are some forums specialising in this topic - again overseas - but locally you hear someone mention infrared every 5 years or so.
