D60 Infrared

I'm selling off the filters I used to do my initial digital infrared experiments, because I no longer have any of the cameras that I was using them. Anyway, one of the filters happens to fit on the front of one lens I have, so I slapped it on to see how the Canon D60 fares in that spectrum. The answer? Not so well. I exposed at f4.5, ISO100 for 218 seconds with a #87 filter (see a wavelength/transmission table for the #87 filter). 218 seconds! When I used to shoot with the Coolpix 950, I was getting shutter speeds of 1/15 and 1/30 sec, at ISO400. I may pick up a #89B filter to play some more. :)
