    […] Twenty months ago I bought a Fujifilm X-Pro 1 camera. I was so impressed by it that I also bought an X-T1. Since then I’ve hardly used the X-Pro 1, which was relegated to the status of backup camer…  […]

    What a great idea! (Nice photos, too!) I just dragged my old XE-1 around the UK for three weeks purely as a backup for my XT-1, and never took it out of my bag. Would have been much more fun as an infrared camera! I’ll need to find a good US-based conversion company.

      I did the conversion with my X-Pro1 too and the pictures are really lovely.
      Your pictures seem to be a bit dark and the special effect is’nt as clear as with mine…
      Forgotten to take a WB?

        Hi Steven, it’s probably just the processing. These images are processed in Snapseed on my iPad and I pulled the highlights back to lessen the infrared effect. Not all of these photos are taken in bright sunlight either, some of them are taken in overcast conditions which also leads to a less dramatic effect.

    Great writeup just like tedjerome I too have my old X-E1 which I love but rarely use & can’t bear to part with it for peanuts & as a huge fan of B&W I think I’ll give this a go. Cheers…

      Yes, you definitely should. I didn’t want to sell my X-Pro 1 for peanuts either and the conversion will help me enjoy using it for many years to come.

    […] I thought about selling the X-Pro 1 body, but even before the X-Pro 2 was released the resale value wasn’t very high. Then it occurred to me – why not get it converted to infrared? This is something I’ve had at the back of my mind for many years, and never got around to. I’m glad I never tried it with an old Canon camera, because the X-Pro 1 has a few features that make it highly suitable for an infrared conversion.  […]

    Really glad I came upon this blog – my XT20 is on it’s way and I can’t bear to part with my XT10 and I too LOVE B&W photography and marvel at other people’s creations. Couple of questions if I may? After recently buying a 720nm IR filter I then realised that the processing was highly involved and required a long photoshop process. I only use Capture One, so quickly dismissed this option. Am I right therefore in thinking that the images coming out of a converted Fuji will very quickly be processed or even be used SOOC? Love your shots too.
