Typepad Import Image

When you open as many boxes as we do, it sometimes becomes routine. So routine that you just open the box without looking to see whom it came from. It’s sort of like a game, can we figure out what type of camera it is by just looking at the accessories? This camera came in with the usual accessories (batteries, lenshood, strap, cables, CD software and cap), plus something else. That something else is a Peca 900 filter and a Peca 916 cut filter. We knew then that this was no ordinary point and shoot camera—this camera was different.

It’s the FinePix IS-1, specifically designed to take photos in normal light and the infrared range. That’s what the Peca filters are for: the 900 blocks normal light, helping with the infrared effect, and the 916 does the opposite.
