Guide: How to do InfraRed with D70

I found a great thread on the D70 forums over at dpreview on how to use the Nikon D70 to do infrared work.

"...if you want to do some colour IR, I would recommend using a filter that cuts rays at a wavelength near visible light. I use Hoya R72 IR Filter which cuts at 720 nm.
When to use IR Filters?

You will achieve your best results at a very sunny day with some nicely shaped clouds and blue sky. Take pictures with the sun in the back and find some very sunny spots, not too much shadow. Though this is when you will get the best results, you can also take IRs in different situations, e.g. inside a dark pub with flash light. But this isn't easy."
