I finally got my Minolta 35-70 F4 with the new Hoya R72 49mm filter!
Wow...!! I am really happy to have it !
I took my first shot quickly today as soon as I received it:
f8, 25s, no saturation, no DRO
Here is the ARW file associated to it:http://philippecabot.com/infrared/infraredv14.arw
After a few actions in photoshop, I got this:
I am not totally satisfied with the "false color" result.
You can try playing with the ARW above to see if you can succeed obtaining
But I think I know why: I used the auto white balance feature of the camera....
When I saw the result, I remembered that changing the white balance before the shot is necessary in order to achieve the false color effect.
Next time I go outside, I will try to set it.
BTW, to set the custom WB, here are the steps that I am planning to do:
0. Set the camera to manual focus
1. Put the R72 filter on
2. From the custom white balance menu, select "Custom setup"
3. Aim at green foliage
4. That's it.
Last time I try do that, I got "Custom WB error", with the value 6600k G9 ?
Is this normal ? Is this the process you are using to set the WB ?
Thanks for the feedback !
PS: btw this 35-70 lens is great for macro shots!! (This is my first macro lens!)
