You still get the 3-stage focus indicator inside the viewfinder while manually focusing. The Darktable Photo Editor, Part 3: My guess is that the camera internal baffling and anti-reflection coatings actually reflect instead of absorb infrared wavelengths. In comparison, this 20mm lens is wonderful for regular-light photography on the D, especially for landscapes. Once the editing steps are entered, just save those steps as a batch process.

Now, the secret sauce to making the D and D succeed with IR photography: Tethered Ifnrared in Windows For infrared photography you just need a camera and a tripod, plus an infrared filter.

I have to conclude that the D is useless for infrared photography.

And passes only infrared light, that is invisible to us. Next, I head for my D It appears that the light baffling and anti-reflection coatings inside the D act more like a mirror in the infrared spectrum.

We recommend using a remote control or failing that, a camera timer to avoid vibration and image blur, since we are using a slow shutter speed. The filter on top of the image sensor screens out almost all e610 the infrared wavelengths.

The Nikon D misbehaves in a nearly identical way to the D when shooting infrared. It blocks the visible spectrum and passes only infrared light.

Epic failure comes to mind.

Its effect is highly recommended for both colour and black and white photography. I bet the problem goes away with a different lens, you say.

It’s only a little bigger than a body infrarsd. They’ll love the results!
