I had a D80 from a package deal so I decided to convert it to infrared. I got a 590 nm filter from Lifepixel. I did the swap on the kitchen table one evening. After I figured out how the ribbon cable clamps worked, it was easy. It's been fun to use and the best images for me have been on partly cloudy days with a few clouds.Attached File  2019-09-23_06-59-52.jpg   241.04KB   0 downloads
