I have a Pentax point and shot camera and I tried to convert it to Infrared. I was successful to remove the front IR filter from CCD and then I had a 760 nm IR filter to kick start with the infrared photography.
But the fun was spoilt as the camera won't focus correctly. I heard that I must replace a clear glass to compensate the thickness of removed IR filter (which is to be done, waiting for a glass sheet to come). But then, I heard someone saying in some of the question regarding IR conversion that there is a metering sensor which will ultimately decide the fate of auto focusing system in IR camera conversion.
So, my question is, do point and shoot cameras are equipped with metering sensor? If yes, how to fix it for infrared camera conversion?
Thanks in advance!
