EIR/Aerochrome Semi-Simuation #729 + KG3 filter stack
« on: March 25, 2019, 06:31:55 »
Hi :)
When I say "semi-simulation", I mean that this filter stack only puts IR in the red channel, it doesn't do a true 'transposition' of IR > Red, Red > Green, and Green to Blue like EIR/Aerochrome does. So for example, visual red doesn't change to yellow as it does with EIR (look at the tail lights).
However, on the other hand, you can do a quick in camera custom white balance with this filter stack, yes even with a Nikon, and you get these images on the back of your camera.
What you see is what you get. These images have not been post processed. They are SOOC.

The stack is slightly slow, for example, these are shot at approximately the same exposure time/settings: ISO 200, f/11, 1/30s. D7000 UV/IR, 18-55mm VR.

This is a filter stack using Lee Scuba Blue #729 (polyester film filter) + Schott KG3 2mm glass filter. The 729 filter is cheap, easy to find, large sheet. The KG3 is a little harder to find, but could come in handy for similar stacks.

Interesting, what would one get for output in a non-converted camera?
