    Infra-red photography with Nikon D-70, Canon, Pentax or Fuji?

    And is this the recommended method for the D-70?

    Infrared filter Wratten 89B, Hoya R72.

    Adjust white balance for digital infrared photography with the Nikon
    D70:

    By taking a photo of green grass at midday in full sun which fills
    screen.

    Use white balance preset from menu, select white balance, >preset> use
    photo>select image> use your control dial to navigate to the image of
    the grass.

    Menu should now say "this image>set." Now is the camera is ready to
    shoot infrared? Any other presets to adjust? Adjusted for drdach
    presets.

    thanks very much from jeffrey dach

    You'll need to adjust the exposure. A lot.

  4. Yes.
    Since you're outside the visible spectrum, adjusting WB does not
    make sense. Shoot RAW.
    Exposure may be tricky. Meter through the filter and bracket wide.
