Canon 5D Mark II going in for infrared conversion

My infrared camera sale above reflects the fact that I just sent my Canon 5D Mark II off to maxmax.com to be converted for infrared use. I’ve used my Canon 5D-IR for several years now with outstanding results, but I felt it was time to bump up to Live View and 21 megapixels for higher precision work, especially with my Coastal Optics 60m f/4 UV-VIS-IR APO macro and Zeiss 25mm f/2.8 IR-Distagon. Sample images to follow here after the end of my Yosemite photo tour.

I was a little surprised that 18-month-old design 5D Mark II bodies are still priced at $2499, but with a $100 instant rebate at B&H Photo, the price comes down to $2399 and with free shipping. I’d of course rather have a Nikon D3x-IR, but $7400 is just way too much. Besides, for IR use, I might want to play with video as well as have a smaller and lighter body.

See my Guide to Digital Infrared Photography for more, as well as my free articles.

Headed for an infrared conversion
