In another thread I mentioned about sending my D50 off for conversion to IR to Life Pixel (http://www.lifepixel.com/). Well finally broke down and sent my D50 out today for conversion. Unless by some miracle, I should get it back next week some time. If it does not get back by Friday, the first chance I will have to put the conversion to a real test will be the weekend of July 22nd. Though the following week may give me more opportunity, since I will be doing a short 5-6 vacation then - I hope to Toronto. Will keep you all posted as to my experiences. Before, during, and after. As to the "before". The phone number listed was answered promptly and competently - compared to another vendor that does the same work. "During": At $250 for my D50 conversion, the price seemed right. IMO the shipping charges back are a bit high compared to my out going charges - but not excessive IMO. More to come over the next few days as I follow up with them on my conversion request.
