You didn't really think it just went away, did you?

Nice to see hypercolor without the channel swap!
My IR hasn't gone away but it has been some what reduced this year (as all my photography has) I've not uploaded a single file to Flickr.

I'll see if I dig out a few from this year to share.

I have a few IR shots to hand on the PC at work these were all taken with my full spectrum converted A7ii:
A7_07207bw.JPG
ILCE-7M2    FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS    70mm    f/5.6    1/1600s    ISO 640
A7_07209_cr.jpg
ILCE-7M2    FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS    28mm    f/4.5    1/4000s    ISO 640
A7_07189.JPG
ILCE-7M2    FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS    28mm    f/4.5    1/5000s    ISO 640

I think the first two where using a 590nm filter & the last via some blue gel.

A couple more from earlier this year:
industar 50 + crystal.jpg
ILCE-7M2    ----    0mm    f/1.0    1/125s    ISO 1250
PK 28mm vari ND.jpg
ILCE-7M2    ----    0mm    f/1.0    1/200s    ISO 640

I think the first was without a filter, and the second was with a variable ND filter set to minimum. (I didn't have proper IR filters with me that day).

I've not yet managed to find a filter that produces IR the way my Sigma SD14s do (sorry not an e-mount image the Foveon sensor has unique response to IR):

With the dust filter removed, an X1 filter & fluorescent WB (SOOC except for rescale)

Nice work. I don't use filters. My IR cameras are full-time conversions. I have 720, 590, and HyperColor.

That first one is absolute magic. It's familiar: maybe you posted it here before? Or another site? I sometimes browse Dyxum. It's not a picture that can be forgotten! :thumbsup:
Thanks. I have definitely posted it on a forum or two previously - Dyxum isn't one I know but there are about a dozen forums I frequent. It's most likely to have been posted here & on the global infrared photography village, but it could have been one of the IR threads in the more general forums too... It can be difficult to remember where things have gone 6 months later!

(I'm now on Dyxum as well and that image has found it's way there, as a first example of what the lens can do...)

I have a Sony NEX-7 converted to full-Infrared. I tend to prefer my IR images in high contrast black and white such as these:

NEX-7    E 50mm F1.8 OSS    50mm    f/4.5    1/100s    ISO 100

Nice work. I don't use filters. My IR cameras are full-time conversions. I have 720, 590, and HyperColor.
I use too many types to have full time conversions in each.
I think my best results on Bayer cameras have been with 720nm, 860nm, 590nm, BG3, & U330 filters (the last 2 of which AFAIK aren't available as conversions) but there have been at least 20 other filters I've tried on one of my full spectrum converted bodies.
My A7ii is also readily switched back to normal photography - indeed it spends most of it's time with the clip in hot mirror installed.
I only use the X1 on my Sigma which is now dedicated to its pseudo-aerochrome role. The filter hasn't worked well on my Bayer cameras.
