What happened to the infrared images I was going to take in Tasmania?

Good question.

I know I told you that I was going to take my infrared camera with me to Tasmania, but I had some problems the day before I left.

First of all, I couldn’t find the charger for the batteries. Then I realised when I sold one of my cameras recently I gave the charger with the camera. So I had to make a quick call and see if she could give it back to me while I ordered a new one for her.

Once I had the charger I charged up the batteries. Then I put the battery in the camera turned it on and nothing. Nothing happened. The camera just wasn’t working. Then I tried another battery and it didn’t work either.  It seemed there was something wrong with the camera.

I have to admit I was really pissed off. I wanted to take it with me. However, I had to leave it behind.

Now I have to work out what is wrong with it, will it be worth fixing or do I covert another camera? So many questions. The camera is about 14 years old, so will it be worth fixing?

Anyway, that is as far as I have got. I just want to explain why you won’t be seeing any infrared images from my latest trip.

  1. The infrared gives these images a magical appearance, especially the trees! But I especially love the one of the church that you’ve coloured – really effective 😀

  2. It is nearly impossible to get anyone to fix cameras here. All those little shops have disappeared — including the people who COULD fix cameras.

    I have two dead cameras. I haven’t been able to get rid of them, but one doesn’t work at all and the other won’t focus with ANY lens. Good thing I have more than a few cameras.

    I’ve never used an infrared camera or even an infrared setting. I never could figure out what it did.

    1. I have found going back to the companies has helped. Though i found out today I can take the camera back to the place that converted it.
      The infrared just changes the environment and reacts to the amount of liquid or moisture in things, more moisture the whiter it appears. I think that is it.
      Thank you Marilyn.

  3. The photos are incredibly beautiful, Leanne! Since the camera is 14 years old, I think it should be repaired if possible. 😊

    1. Thank you John, yeah, I think I might see if I can get a quote or find out what is wrong with it, and if it is too expensive ditch it and maybe look at getting another camera I have converted.

  4. Dear Leanne,
    we really love this effect. It kind of intensifies the pictures.
    Thanks for sharing
