I want to do a hack. Need to know the right camera or cameras to choose from. I want a digital camera that I can convert to IR use. I want to be able to use a large format lens with it. It would be attached with a Nikon mount. Naturally, I'd make it possible to use manual Nikon lenses. I also, want to either keep the original shutter or just use a large format shutter. Several reasons for these things. The most important is for astrophotography. I would think it should be 8MP. I'd also like to do a sensor cooling hack.
Do you think you could point me in the right direction? I was thinking of a camera with a fixed focus lens. Haven't really found a quality camera with that type of lens. I also, do not want to hack any expensive camera. If I did, I'd just have someone else do the IR block filter removed on a Nikon D700. Not feasible with my miniscule budget. :)
