UPDATE  April 2009: I found the 1Ds too heavy so I purchased a used Canon 5D and converted it using www.lifepixel.com with the Standard IR (equivalent to Hoya R72 / Kodak Wratten 89b / 720nm). My primary lens is a Canon EF 24-105 mm f/4L IS USM. I carry it separately in a Lowepro TopLoad Zoom.

Original Post March 10, 2008:

I recently converted my old Canon 1Ds to a digital infrared camera. And, I LOVE it.

I used it for the first time in South India this past November.
