IR Season is in full swing...
Spring has sprung, plants are in full bloom, and IR season 2020 is officially here. We're getting technical this issue, with a lot of thorough analysis on the Canon EOS R system, RF lens performance, Multi-Spectral Flashes, and our new class-leading IR-ND filter! We also offer some insight towards what exactly a UV filter is supposed to do, since this is a matter of some controversy. Lastly, we have an inspiring infrared photog highlight from Sakchai Lokanuvat (@cuttlepup) to remind us that, while gear is important, a creative curiosity and the will to get out and shoot often is what it really takes to get great shots!
First, because we're really excited about this...
We've just launched a new, profesional grade ND filter that can be used seamlessly with Infrared AND visible light! It's durable, it's slim, and it's optically incredible in every wavelength.
