Word broke just the other day that Olympus had developed a prototype image sensor capable of capturing both visible (color) and near-infrared light. I spoke briefly about my experiences with infrared photography but never had I dabbled into the world of infrared videography as Philip Bloom has.
Bloom, a world-renowned filmmaker, notes in a recent blog post that he now owns three cameras that have been physically modified to shoot infrared by removing the infrared blocking filters and replacing them with infrared pass filters of various strengths. He picked up the third camera, a Sony RX100 IV, in Las Vegas while in town on business and decided to experiment a bit.
One thing led to another and this is what he ended up with. If you're at all interested in infrared photography, I'd highly recommend checking out some of Bloom's earlier posts on the matter.
