Want to push your camera to the limit? DIY Full Spectrum / IR Conversion Explained

cardinal_angkor_wat_infraredAs our family holiday project we often do jigsaw puzzles. This year we converted my Nikon D7000 to full spectrum instead. I have to say right away, it was a lot harder than any puzzle we ever attempted. When finished, though, we had a very cool camera that can capture a variety of different IR spectra, depending on the filter I use, or traditional color, or a mix of both. You can learn more in my writeup for Extremetech.com.
