|Nikon D70 DSLR IR Filter Conversion|
What i have here is a dead nikon d70 dslr, given
to me 'spares or repair' after the shutter failed. After much musing i
decided to remove the CCD sensor board and replace the IR filter with a
plain glass one to allow me to take infra-red photos. As i have my own D70
it makes it an easy and safer procedure to simply swap the sensor board rather
than expose my CCD to the world during the changeover of the filter.
A good friend of mine runs an optical lab so we ordered some clear flat filter material and after removing the stock filter and scanning it in one of his machines we then used another machine to make a filter the same size from the blank. You can see a video of this process here.
