"Hundreds of hours of shooting, tests, and analysis went into preparing the Guide over the course of 2006 and 2007. You simply will not find a book (or stack of books) that contain anywhere near the wealth of detailed and accurate and practical information that you will find in this guide.
- Overview—what infrared is, what to expect when starting out;
- Camera selection—digital SLR, point and shoot, filters vs conversion;
- Camera image examples—numerous examples and what to expect from the Fuji F30-IR, Fuji S6000fd-IR, Canon EOS 5D-IR, Nikon D70-IR, Nikon D200-IR;
- Focusing and backfocus, including a special tip for Canon EOS users;
- Sharpness issues of multiple kinds;
- Filtration, both external and internal;
- Exposure and white balance;
- Hot spots and how to both avoid and work around them in post-processing;
- Lenses, including “hot spot” and backfocus assessments;
- Workflow: swapping and inverting color channels, techniques for grayscale conversion, color expansion, selective color, RAW-file conversion, color space and gamut, 16-bit vs 8-bit;
- Resources—where to find additional information on camera conversions, filters, books, web sites, etc.
It's on the expensive side for a photo book, but if you're seriously interested in the subject, you gotta have it. Click on the ad link under "Sponsors" in the left-hand column to check out more about it (I found Lloyd's article in the ASMP NorCal Quarterly, a link to which you can find on the site, particularly interesting—in fact, the whole issue (it's a .PDF) is good, and worth downloading).
