Hi, I started out with a Minolta DiMage 7 with either an opaque infrared filter, or a deep red... worked well because of the electronic viewfinder. Now I have a converted Nikon D100 that is too good to be true. I shot Kodak HIE for 20+ years and never got the control and shadow detail I get in the digital. It is simply amazing. I want to ultimately move up to a 10 megapixel SLR when I can afford to, more for the speed of shooting than the actual sensor size... I shoot models and have missed a few nice shots while the D100 was writing. Now I just need to find a digital replacement for Kodak EIR... I have been shooting this film for about 8 years, and cross processing in C-41 chemistry. Originally I was printing the EIR in the color darkroom, but no longer have that capability, and now scan it to make an Epson print. Any suggestions for a digital false color infrared simulating EIR are greatly appreciated. Cheers from Texas, USA.

Very pleased to find this site. I use a Panasonic FZ7 converted to IR by MaxMax, Hoya R72 filter and am very pleased with the results. I've shot in Egypt, Jordan and Japan with it this year and have revived my use of b&w as a result, even resorting to converting to Piezography with good printing results. I've experimented with "dumbing down" the photos to make them more like film, but since Konica was a favorite IR film as it was not too extreme, I'll probably settle on a similar printing technique, not adding much grain and glow in Photoshop, if any.
Wish there was a digital Noblex 150 to use as I love the IR panoramics it produces, but that's pretty specialized.
Have also experimented a little with the Leica M8 and it works well but I don't need to fiddle with it for IR as the Panasonic does very nicely and is oh so simple to use when you're on the road a lot.
I've done a lot of reading about digital IR in the past few months and find your book extremely comprehensive and useful so I'll recommend it with enthusiasm to all who are curious and want to get into this area.
So, if you're in NYC let's have lunch sometime.
