As the title says, what do you guys think of these pics? This is the first no glass conversion I've done that seems to be at least semi successful.

The pics look pretty good to me, but I don't have any other P32 IR pics to compare with. The pic of the camper is a little grainy, but I think the focus is pretty good. I did tweak the brightness slightly so I could see the "Montana" logo a bit better. The camper is around 50ft, the bush about 18-20ft, and the cat around 10ft.

Focus doesn't look too bad for a 3mp cam
With sufficient thrust pigs fly just fine

Thanks for the input. I could possibly get it a little better, but I'm afraid of taking too much material off if I open it up again. I think it'll work well enough for my needs.

I'd like to do a day color/night IR build with this cam, I'm just not sure if I have the skills to build and program the board that's necessary to operate a shutter exchanger.

I asked Ralph a while back, and he said he didn't think his exchanger backpacker would work with the shutter exchanger mod on a p32/41 (or at least he hadn't attempted to do this yet). This is a bit different than adding the normal exchangers like guys are doing with the A503's. In the 41/32's, you use the shutter cover as the exchanger, drilling a hole through it and gluing in a small IR filter. When the shutter cover closes, you get color pics, then when it opens, you get IR pics.

It has been a while since I asked him about this, so he may have came up with a way to make it work, I'll shoot him a message when I get ready to start this build.

Easier to tell if you convert them to black and white.

Looks good detail on the cat.
