DSLR full spectrum mod verification?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

maybe a silly question, but I have failed to find an answer in the forums yet... I have Canon 450D, that is claimed to be full spectrum modified by the previous owner and I sort of would like to find a proof that it actually is, before investing into IR-UV blocking filter. With IR filter removal I understand that you can verify that by taking daylight pictures and they should be reddish. Is there some reliable way to verify full spectrum mod?

Thanks for any idea!

I have a FULL modded Canon 1000D.

Yes, general daytime shots will come out with a pink cast.

Just take a photo of a white wall, it will be obvious.

A DSLR with only the LPF#2 Filter removed will also have a pink caste on daytime shots, but not as extreme as Merlin's shot of the statue.

To prove it's a Full Spectrum mod I believe you LiveView the infrared led on your TV remote.

It has pink cast on white suface and shows remote IR blinker active in liveview. 
 

Thanks for ideas, really helped, off to get some filters! :)
