Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
Hi can you please tell me if you can turn nikon d40 into a infrared camera thanks debss
Basic idea is to replace the infrared-cut filter in front of the CCD sensor with an infrared filter, so the camera only "sees" the light in/above near-infrared range (mostly invisible to human eye).
The operation on a d40 is a bit fiddly. You will of course need a replacement infrared filter. You can cut it yourself from a standard lens infrared filter (that's what I normally do). It might then need some positioning to get autofocus to work properly in case the replacement filter is not the same thickness as the original one.
I've actually just found this tutorial on the net, you might find it useful:

I son't know how to turn a camera into an IR camera but I did find a website that shows you how to make a filter that allows you to take IR photos. You can make the filter yourself for free unless you don't have the items needed but then again the item needed are only a couple of dollars. Here is the link.
