after many weeks using my infrared converted NEX-7 and the NEX-6 with Hasselblad Zeiss lenses with the Rhinocam adapter I had to "clean up" my MM from all the dust :-)

This is OT but if it of any interest, here is the post about and with the Rhinocam:

New tools/toys are always inspiring me

NEX7-IR converted to infrared
By: dierk
thanks, John.
As described for the panorama shots, these white roses I made with the NEX7-IR infrared camera and the Noctilix wide open. From the infrared the leaves in the background are white as well.

NEX7-IR converted to infrared
By: dierk
I got my NEX7 converted to infrared.
that means, the AA and IR blocking filter are removed and a infrared filter 715nm was installed directly in front of the sensor. And I can only shoot infrared with this camera now!
The sensitivity of the sensor is about the same as without the IR filter, resulting in normal hand held shooting infrared. And you can use all lenses without filter and with AF and/or focus peaking supported!
incredible - if you like this look :)

These images I shot with the panorama function of the NEX7, the image is OOC!! (only resized for the web)

John, I use Nik Silver Efex (since the first beta version) and I love it. If you don't use it, you should give it a try!

thanks for your comments, very much appreciated.
with the 12mm and pointing down that much you have to keep your feet out of the picture :)

Leica M9 with CV 12mm Heliar
By: dierk
thanks very much for your comments!
I use the 18mm finder and have to guess the rest - and try again, if it is not ok. :))
For the sky I use the red filter emulation in Nik Silver Efex and some other tools and UPoints

Leica M Monochrom with Super-Elmar-M 21mm/3.4 @ f/9, IR filter R715
By: dierk
thanks very much, Sol and terry.
You are right, it is hard to choose, but there is no need to choose :)
The green version is like being there (especially on my 30" screen) and the IR version is more like an scene in an abstract world

I went to this place with the M Monochrom - and found a fantastic green wood, so I got back the next day and did my green images :)

By: dierk
thanks very much, Sol and Friedeye
this Leica APO Macro is really a optical gem!

It would be great on the new Leica M, but how do you focus this sort of image spot on with a fixed focus field in the center?? That is the reason, why I sent the M back after 2 days.
