The fascination with infrared photography has been around for a long time. In olden days it required loading and unloading film in the dark and even keeping it safe in its canister prior to use, which these days can play havoc when taking it on planes as TSA officials have every right to open the canister for inspection. (Imagine explaining the need to keep the film in its...

Having worked with a fair share of digital cameras--both D-SLRs and digicams--I'd like to suggest some designs that might be appealing to many users.
