Leica M8 for infrared

Leica USA loaned me an M8 along with the new 35/2.5 Elmarit and the 16/18/21mm f/4 Tri-Elmar. I will be posting a report in the next few weeks, but in brief, the M8 makes a very usable infrared camera without modification, something rarely seen these days. The M8 uses sensor cover glass which blocks infrared weakly, which allows it to be used with reasonable shutter speeds handheld, at least in bright sunlight. Thus its weakness is also its strength (see Infrared Contamination). If you’re interested in infrared photography, why not learn about it the fastest way possible?

The Leica M8 uses the Kodak KAF-10500 sensor; see the datasheet for details on IR transmission.
