Nikon D200 Digital Camera IR Performance (Part 1)

Infrared test
The Nikon D200 is a lovely camera to use and handle.

For IR photography, the light meter on the D200 is much more sensitive than the sensor is, and the sensor has a very effective IR blocking filter. This means long exposures, though the results are stunning. Full sun exposure times of 15 seconds at f5.6 and 100ISO were used.
