So we were messing about on YouTube, and David found a video about making an IR filter for a digital camera. We determined to attempt this tonight, and I'm quite pleased with my efforts. I used an aggregate process culled from various online tutorials, so the project is by no means original. But it is very fun!
I took a few pictures of the process, but really it's no different than anything else you can find out there. I'm just happy about the output I've got so far, which is up on Posterous... nice video of the mini-blowtorch and a hot needle. Huzzah!
