    I have recently converted my X-Pro 1 to full spectrum. These pictures are shot with a 830 filter on a 18 mm f:2 lens handheld in RAW and developed in Lightroom. I am new to IR and converted to full spectrum to have all options available.

    Those are wonderful images and I appreciate you posting these. The timing is perfect for me. I spent a good part of last night trying to decide which filter to choose before sending my X-Pro1 off this week for conversion. I am torn between 850nm and full spectrum. I know I will process the majority of my IR shots as black and white, but having the options that full spectrum provides is keeping me on the fence. Not sure if I want to deal with lens filters that full spectrum requires or not. I have an X-Pro2 for "normal" color shots and is easy enough to carry two bodies. Decisions, Decisions :)

    If I had to do it over, I would go for 830 or 850 conversion. It is expensive to purchase external filters for each size lense. But I now also have the option to produce false color IR with a 720 filter and use the X-Pro 1 as a normal camera with a IR blocking filter. Since I have X-T2 as the normal camera a 850 conversion on the X-Pro 1 is really all I needed.

    Thanks for that advice, good points. I use a lot of adapted lenses of various filter sizes so unless I got large filters and step down rings, the costs would add up quickly.

    It turns out the XT-2 is incredibly sensitive to IR light without conversion. I've been shooting with a Hoya 720nm filter and am able to shoot handheld at ~3200 ISO at f4/f5 and around 1/25 with optical stabilization. Not too bad. It's kind of a known secret of the X-T2. Might give it a shot. I had an XM1 converted to full spectrum recently and still waiting for it to be returned to me. Great images by the way!

    I have to give it a try with my X-T2. Thanks for the tip.
