IR Chrome Infrared Filter Review

I recently shared my review of the Kolari Vision IR Chrome infrared filter for full spectrum cameras; who it's for, what cameras it will work with, and what processing is required in editing. I've shot this filter on the Kolari Pocket in Yosemite, on the Fujifilm X-T2 in The Great Smoky Mountains, and on the Fujifilm GFX-50S in Michigan. This filter is easy to process and produces some great colors. Check out the video.

LUTs for Infrared Video and Photography

Updated LUTs for Infrared video and photography. LUTs can be used to swap colors in infrared video and with some raw image editors. LUTs can also be used to create enhanced profiles for color swapping in Lightroom. In this video, I'll show you how to create a LUT or you can download my LUTs for free. A list of raw editors that support LUTs and technical details are in my blog.
