I’m thrilled to report the Canon 5d is infrared capable

I’ve been wondering if the 5d was able to take IR photos, and found at least one website that said it was. I decided to give it a try, and ordered a Hoya r72 filter for my 50mm F1.8 lens (since it has the widest aperture). It came yesterday and I took it out at lunchtime to test it. Not only does it work, but the results are better than I was getting with my Canon G5. Here’s an example shot:

The only downside as compared to the G5 is that you had the option to look through the viewfinder when setting up the shot, and it also tried to auto expose so you’d get a faint but visible image in the viewfinder. With the 5d, when you look in the viewfinder, you are looking through the lens, and so having an opaque black filter mounted makes it very difficult to focus and align the shots. For the shot above, I ended up removing the filter, setting the aim and focus, and then carefully putting the filter back on to shoot. But, it came out well enough to make it worth the extra trouble, so I’m not complaining. :)

I captured the bird in this shot purely by chance, and loved the way it came out.

Weird little bit of surrealism from Shutterbug mag. They sent me a renewal notice… form on top, a little sales pitch below that. At the bottom of the letter, the following text: “Click on http://www.shutterbug.com”

I tapped it once with a pen just to make sure.
