A Set of IR Pictures from High Park

On Monday I went with Dillon and Sally to High Park early in the morning hoping to photography cherry blossoms.  It turns out we didn't go at the right time yet.  Perhaps we will do it again this weekend.  It was fun as I had not gone to High Park for many years.

Took along the almost forgotten IR modified 20D with me, and the trusty Pentax-M 20mm f4.  I must say this lens is a perfect match for the 20D/IR.  A relatively wide angle of around 32mm equivalent, almost a comfortable 35mm.  I ended up shooting more IR pictures than with the NEX-5N.  Hope you like these pictures.

There are two dogs in the picture below.  They were so obedient and they were posing for the owner!  Lovely dogs.

  1. Pentax multiply by 1.5x, no? A 30mm.. Close to that mythical 31 everyone lusts after... The photos are amazing (as always).

    1. uv: The crop factor is determined by the sensor size, not the lens. Canon's sensor is slightly smaller than Sony sensors. It's 1.6x for Canon and 1.5x for everyone else (except the older Sigma, which is 1.7x) for APS-C sensor size.

    2. you're totally right, I just made the "20D + Pentax 20mm = Pentax rig" assumption. That's obviously missing a K for it to be true ;)

    3. I am still a Pentax fan in heart!
