    I received my camera from Isaac Szabo today..... and of course, it's raining. My other IR camera is Enhanced Color, so the Standard IR will require a new learning curve. Maybe tomorrow..... if the sun comes out.

    Truly hours of experimentation, trial, and error......... but I believe I have the recipe I wanted for 720nm. Why this is significant for me is because my Nex5T wouldn't accept a proper custom white balance. So, I had to make one up. Tweaking to commence.

    Man, I have to get an A7R3 so that I can get my A7R2 converted to do this kind of infrared! Just dreaming ...

    I can only imagine the quality IR you could get from an A7R2. Don't give up your dreams.........

    What kind of shutter speed are you using for these? They're beautiful.

    Rae, thank you. To answer your question, I shoot ap-priority and for the last post, it was f5.6, and the speed was 1/1000, with the ISO at 100. It was a very bright day today.

    This one, from the same spot and basically the same subject is at 1/500th. So, I can't say there's a "rule of thumb" speed. For IR, besides WB, the ap setting is very important.

    I'm finding that there was more damage from Irma than I initially thought. You can see the broken end of this pier.
