I have a 600D/T3i and want to get the infrared effect I used to get with infrared film way back... I can't afford to get a camera just for this, and get it specially converted. I've bought a couple of 720mn filters from E-bay to try and get the effect I want.
I've used custom white balance, long exposures etc, on sunny days but am not seeing any typical effects e.g. white grass. One of the filters, a Green L, has just been reviewed in Digital SLR magazine, and was considered to work.
I haven't tried messing around in software yet as, according to the article, it should be possible to see the basic effect, in camera, on the LCD.
Although I did the test with a TV remote control to assess whether my 600D, could see IR wavelengths, and it could, I don't seem to be getting anywhere with this!
Has anyone had success with a normal, rather than converted, 600D?
