Leica M8 IR Madness

(hmm upload has inverted the order of this image and the next magenta one)


Here is an "as shot" image showing the Leica M8 "IR Sensitivity" issue. One of the problems with the M8 is that it is overly sensitive to Infrared light and shows up as magenta. The heater should be a reddish-organge color on the left and the chef's clothes are blackish grey, as is the drape thing by to the back kitchen. The next photo is an attempt at the "work around" from the Leica Forums:


So definitely get the M8 if you love magenta. :-P


Update: I just started a Flickr group for all of you crazy people:
