Is it possible to shoot infrared images using a IR filter in B&W mode on the M262?

 

Thanks for the replies.

Yes it is. But i find it's better shot in raw, and then converted to B&W, in LR for example.

If you find focus is difficult, use the EV.

That's how i do it with my M-P (typ 240).

No live view or EV with an M 262.

Oh, yes my mistake.

It only shoots in raw too, doesn't it...no B&W mode?

You can, but unlike the M8, the newer M's have an IR "ISO" of about 4. (1/30th sec. @ f/8 in sunlight). You have to set a fairly high actual ISO on the camera to avoid long exposure times. And you need a strong "visible-light-blocking" deep red filter to get the IR to stand out.

Heh... I don't know (and I own a 262).   Let me see....

 

You can shoot jpeg and you can set the Saturation to B&W if you want B&W jpegs.   That's for the M 262.  The M-D 262 might be different.

Unfortunately that does not achieve IR's particular ability to see through haze. It is necessary to use a lens filter.

Yes, need the IR filter, of course. So shoot raw with filter, then convert to B&W.
