The IR cut filter is replaced by an IR-pass filter (in my case a filter that passes light beyond 780nm), the conversion has no real influence on the SSWF. Check out a detailed description of the process here
Sample IR .. hmm.. here's a snapshot
You know, I like your image. I'm surprising myself here because most of the IR photography i've seen so far has been slightly boring!
No offence to anyone, but there's something about the medium that makes people take photos they wouldn't consider taking otherwise. It's a bit like the effect watercolours have on an artist. Suddenly you get little pictures of flowers or wishy washy landscapes! In IR photography, it seems to be empty fields with a few random trees.
Anyway, I apologize for being so opinionated, and would like to know if you are still subject to long exposure times for this type of photography after the conversion, or whether the camera can be used handheld.
