Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better!
Well, not really… What I am really trying to say in this post is that the features, capabilities and output of the NEX-5 and the Olympus E-PL1/2 are so close to the same that you can and should substitute each others name in any of my posts here when it comes to filters and capabilities. The only real differences of course will be lens selection, resolution and in camera menu flow.
I have seen some REALLY GOOD NEX-5 Full Spectrum Infrared posts out there in WEB land that makes my heart smile! And anything, ANYTHING that advances the cause of digital Infrared photography is a good thing. So to those of you who have chosen the NEX-5 as your base Infrared system keep pushing the boundaries! And for those of you who have not seen any of the great NEX-5 Infrared images out there do some WEB searching and check them out. Click HERE for just one WEB example!
I will keep my E-PL1 Full Spectrum system but I can tell you for sure that there are some great images being generated by these Sony systems now. Plus, there are several conversion companies out there who do the NEX-5!
Just remember that when it is time to use the NEX as a normal color system that you need at a minimum the LDP’s CC1 filter. But remember to read the post on this blog about doubling that up with the B+W 486 for truly factory color results!
Here is the same image taken a few minits from the first one with the NEX with the CC1/486 UV/IR cut filter installed! What more could you ask for?
