Subject: [Leica] Some digital infrared photos

Since my Konica Infrared film is down to just a few rolls, and since I 
can't afford, and don't really want an M8, (am waiting for the D10) I've 
been thinking about trying some infrared photography with the isDS.

So I bought a 49mm Hoya R72 filter on ebay which arrived yesterday 
afternoon.  We've had on and off rain until the sun poked out around 4 
PM EDT so I just took these quickie photos less than an hour ago:

The filter is so dark a red that it appears to be black, but by looking 
through the viewfinder for about a minute, one finally gets enough 
visibility to compose a shot... that's if there's enough sunshine.

The image is dark red as it is uploaded from the camera, and since the 
camera only does its IR bit in the red channel, one only has to to a 
simple gray scale convert in Photoshop, and then a few adjustments.
