I'm evaluating a CMOS monochrome camera and it is impressive,very high resolution and low noise as compared to color... I've had a couple of CCD monochrome cameras in the past and I think CMOS cameras are better on all counts, mainly lower noise. Guylain has a Monochrome Nikon D5100 (or D5000???) and has posted a few very impressive images made with it... I also have exchanged messages with Brent Oliver and believe he has the capability to convert the Nikon D5100 to monochrome...My plan, when I have the money in hand, is to get a D5100 converted to monochrome and combine images made with both the D5100 monochrome and my present 60Da to get the best of both into one image...

Quote:Now that my camera has the Baader mod I'll try it again. The math says that it should work, but we'll see if it works in practice.
