In­frared gem

Amateur Photographer - - Your Letters -

In In­box 17 Novem­ber, you asked what were read­ers’ favourite early digi­cams. Mine is the Olym­pus Ca­me­dia C-2020 Zoom. Why? Be­cause it’s one of the few early dig­i­tal cam­eras with­out an in­frared block­ing fil­ter, mak­ing it ideal for hand­held in­frared pho­tog­ra­phy, with around 1/60sec at f/4 quite pos­si­ble with an R72 In­frared fil­ter fit­ted. And you can see the im­age clearly on the view­ing screen. You only get 2.1MP, but that’s plenty for web use. Mine still gets reg­u­lar out­ings when green leaves and sun­shine are present, as the ef­fect is stun­ning. Brian Parkin
