    I know what you mean mate, the sniffer dogs and police helicopter really add something to the trip

    Anyways, posting here because i recently got myself a camera, curently reading through a Dummies book for it (cos i am clueless on this), and hopefully out taking shots soon, learning as I go.

    Its the Nikon D3100 18-55 kit, and its complicated lets hope I can do it justice

    OK, I left it a couple of days, seems to be a bit quiet of late, so here are my other three Malta shots :

    Lovely shot. The IR helps hold the eye in and look beyond the obvious.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Think I might have to get myself an IR filter for Portugal this year. I just know a 77mm for the sigma 10-20 isn't going to be cheap!

    [edit] I've noticed that Amazon has filters for 760nm and 950nm as well as the standard 720nm. These are much cheaper, but is the effect any different? Also, will any of these filters work properly with my 450D? It's the only one I've got, so conversion isn't an option.

    Exactly. IR filter is built into the AA filter in front of the sensor in most cases.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    My church project has been taken with my Nikon D70 and D200 with the Sigma 10-20 and a 77mm 720nm, but you will need a tripod cuz they is long exposures. Dunno howe the 450 compares with either, Ive generally found that the newer the tech, the better the IR blocking filter, and hence the worse the IR performance unmodded. There is a place in UK but its £210 just for the mod and that doesnt include recal of the AF, but Pro Camera Repair in San Diego USA does it for £140 ish *including* AF recal with a std 18-70mm lens (in the case of my D70 anyway). They have a presence in ebay so check em out.
    Cheers, David

    That's lovely. It'd have been a bugger if he'd landed on the camera.
    To err is human. To really foul things up ... you need a computer.
