Converting a Canon to infrared visible compositing multispectral camera

I recently bought a DIY Plant Analysis Filter Kit from the Public Labs site and an used Canon A490 from ebay to convert it to an infrared visible compositing multispectral camera. So after following the instructions on http://publiclab.org/wiki/infragram-convertible-cameras I replaced the existing block infrared filter of the camera with the public labs IR free one. The procedure was simple and it took me about 10 minutes to replace the filter with the new one. I won’t get into detailed intstruction about how I did it because you can find lots of them on http://publiclab.org/wiki/infragram-convertible-cameras.

And some photos from the replacement procedure.
