Really to say I decided to make a look at that camera after I discovered the following article:

The Olympus C2020z is King

https://johnpowellefiap.wordpress.com/2013/10/29/olympus-c2020z-is-king/

Camera itself, with the dedicated camera bag, and two flash memory cards (8Mb and 16Mb) was obtained on the local marked for $20.

Which is not so cheap, but rather "so-so may be".

It is in the quite decent condition (only had to clean contacts in the battery compartment from the old battery leak).

However I suddenly discovered, that it uses completely obsolete Smart Media cards. For which I didn't have any card reader!

And that in the best Tiff mode my biggest flash is able to hold only 2 images! Twisted Evil

So, I have to look for the proper card rider, and decided also to search for the more suitable card.

At the end I discovered the completely new proper card rider (in the factory packing) for $1.75

However the obsolete Smart Media cards came to be really expensive on the second hand market. Rolling Eyes

Well, at the end I was able to obtain some proper no name card in 128mb for $10, which is not so bad at all. It is able to hold 22 images (SHQ) quality. Which completely satisfy my main purpose with that camera - to shot the infrared images.

I own NEEWER IR760 filter, so I decided to start with it.

There is the first try:

1/ HQ image without IF filter:



2/ HQ image with IF filter:



ISO there was 196. So, it is possible to shat at the daylight handheld. Looks like it doesn't have any IR filter in the camera at all

There is as the camera works (with its IIC matrix) on the HQ mode on the common run:

There are the IF photos taken by Tiff mode at the best quality option, and later developed in image processor:

Like 1 Like 1 Thank you! I almost bought one in early part of century. I waited until Canon XT price dropped to $1000. Another story...

You IR results look like so much fun I bought one on ebay for $20. I came with 16mb card! Waiting for IR filter...

How do you attach filter to your camera? Have CLA-1? I'll probably have to kludge.
