Infrared Conversion of Fuji X-Pro 2

10th August 2017
Finally got the Fuji X-Pro2 back from its conversion to infrared. It has been away a long while due to the fact that ACS had not done one previously but expected the filter would be the same size as the X-Pro1. It was not and they had to get a special batch made.

The conversion was to 830nm, which is the same as I had previously on the X-E1 and I went out to the river Soar to check all was well. I made a few exposures on the outskirts of Loughborough and went on to Ratcliffe on Trent where I made a few more. It was immediately obvious that the depth of field scale at the bottom of the frame is no longer accurate and I will check with ACS as to why this is so and why they don’t advise customers of this. As it happens that is of no relevance to me as I am now well aware of what to expect with different lens and aperture settings.

What is relevant is that the rendering is, as expected, superb and I am very happy with the files being produced.

Update 21st August 2017. I have just confirmed that the viewfinder scale showing the focal depth is based on algorithms built into the camera for visible light. So not a fault of the conversion but a result of it.
