Monochrome, IR filters and Confusion
Can anybody please explain to me what the effect of the M8 IR problem is on black and white capture. How does the magenta casting manisfest itself on a greyscale?
If Leica decides that fitting an IR filter is the pro tem solution pending a more permanent resolution, would that effectively preclude me from rectrospectivley converting any raw image into monochrome without creating an IR effect?
Am I being stupid here or would the potential solution of a filter to overcome the IR issue simply mean that I would have to remember to dismount the IR filter if I wanted to shoot in monochrome?
Any advice appreciated.
Just thought of another question, can one mount an IR filter directly on top of an existing UV filter? Cheers
