I had my 5D converted to Infra Red capture by ACS cameras earlier this year and I bought an adapter to fit any Nikon lens to any Canon body. This gave me the opportunity to use the amazing Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 lens on my 5D IR.
The Adapter has a micro chip and the usual Canon electrical contacts that allow focus confirmation and normal non AF operation. The back focus is spot on and the zoom tracking is good too. The iris lever can be used to do stepless iris pulls when shooting video too;)
The woodland I headed to has been decimated since my last visit but still I took a shot. Bristol City Council are in the process of making a woodland trail for mountain bikes here, in association with Timberland whose logo and name is on the way markers. It'll be a great project when finished but looks a bit messy at the moment.
So I went on to some ancient woodland nearby that I knew could not be harmed.
Flat light looks lifeless in infra red too. I wish the sun had popped out for a while this afternoon. This shot at 100% is staggering. It shows the amazing capability of the Nikon glass at the 14mm setting.
A short walk through the woods brought me to Abbots Pool. Used in medieval times by the monks of the St Augustine monastery to farm fish. It's still a hard to find special place some 600 years on.
And here's my shot of the day. Taken with my Canon 100mm f/2.8 IS macro lens. This blue version is Julie's favourite.
I prefer this colour rendering. It would make a great canvas for a home.
I’ll be out again with my infra red kit this summer when the sun comes out. At least I know the lens adapter works fine so there will be no holding me back.
