Does this mean you have to shoot jpgs and set the camera to its monochrome mode?
I usually shot IR pictures during spring or summer, with a powerful sun light.
You need an infrared filter (like B+W 092-093 or Hoya R72).
I prefer low ISO and longer exposure time.
I convert the M8 raw file using Capture One 6.
Sorry for my poor english.
