Infra Red Cameras

I use cameras converted for infra red. Represented in the Galleries are: Canon 20D - my first IR camera . Unfortunately damaged beyond economic repair. Canon D60 - a gift from a friend. An early DSLR which despite low pixel count takes extremely sharp images. Lumix LX 5 - a handy little compact camera with a Leica lens. Slips in a pocket and takes great images. Olympus OMD EM5 Mk II - my latest IR Camera and easily the best!

Equipment for Landscape

Older Images taken on Canon DSLRs with 17-40 lens. In 2016 I changed to Olympus cameras using 2 OMD EM5 Mk II bodies with 9-18 and 14-150 lens. In 2019 I upgraded to OMD M1 MkII and M1 MkIII bodies and added a 40-150 Pro lens. Landscape shots are usually taken on a tripod either Manfrotto or Mefoto. I use screw in ND filters for long exposures. For landscape I shoot at low ISO and with small apertures for best quality and maximum depth of field

Equipment for Nature and Sport

Various Canon DSLRs using a Canon 100-400 L Lens In 2019 I changed to Olympus OMD MKII and MKIII with a 40-15o Pro lens and X2 Converter. However there been no opportunities for sport in 2020 and few for nature shots. Shots are usually hand held, wide open (or f8 if light permits) at fast shutter speeds.

Equipment for Other Images

Images in Japan were taken on 2 OMD EM5 Mk II bodies with 9-18, 14-150 land 75-300 lenses. The EM5 bodies are slow to focus so nature work needs extra care. However cameras, lenses and batteries performed with any problems in temperatures down to -20C. Other images were taken with the Canon and Olympus described. The Olympus M1s are excellent for nature and sport with high frame rate and fast focusing. I occasionally use a Sony HX90V compact when I want to travel light.
