    Aussie RT in the sun (infrared)
    « on: 2017-02-16 12:08:25 »
    A recent ride into the high country of Victoria saw me visit Lake William Hovell and Cheshunt South.
    Here is my bike basking in the sun by the lake.

      Very nice indeed. Great shot. Did you take it in IR or is it post-processed?

          Thanks.
          I had a Nikon 1 V1 converted to infrared. Standard sensor filter replace by a 720nm infrared filter.

                  That is possibly the best RT shot I have seen.
                  So when is this “old enough to know better” supposed to kick in?

                            Not really very technical.
                            A standard digital camera has a filter over the sensor which blocks ultraviolet (shorter wavelengths than visible light) and also infrared (longer wavelengths than visible light). It just allows the normal spectrum of light colours that humans can see through to the sensor.
                            In my modified camera, a different filter is used, it allows only the longer (red) wavelengths of visible light and (infrared) non-visible light through to the sensor.
