Just sent a few shots to Protech taken on theD3200 they converted for me. They put them all up in their gallery and I must say I am pleased with how they look.

They did my D80 for me. Most of my favourite shots have been taken with it. There are a few in my port.

About how much was the conversion?

I've got two Canon 400D bodies (originally intended for 3D but I can't be arsed with the messing about associated with setting it up) and an 1100D body which are rarely, if ever used.

Protech charged me £250 for the conversion plus £10 for return postage.
They are not VAT registered so no VAT reclaimable in that.
Turn round was about 2 weeks.
You need to chose your filter with care.
Mine is 720nm. but the do shorter wavelength ones as well. The shorter wavelength filters pass more colour. Mine, theoretically passes no colour but the camera generates some false colour from noise.

Last time I looked at them there were three... std B&W, deep IR B&W and the colour one (which gives an alabaster ghostly effect on skin).  It'll probably be the colour one I'll go for as I'll find B&W too restrictive and it'll still be interesting for model shoots.

There are four. 590nm. 665nm. 720nm. 830nm.

The 720nm. is the one that most people would consider the standard IR. You get false colour.
830nm. gives a stronger black and white.
665nm. passes some colour.
590nm. passes a bit more colur.

All the colour in my images is false colour generated by camera noise. You can generate interesting false colour by messing about with levels and hue/sat. The most challenging aspect of it all is that apparent light levels do not give you an accurate idea of what you are going to get. Very small shifts of the camera angle, that would make little difference to your exposure if shooting normally, can give you a very marked change in exposure.

Mines the 720 too, skin can be fantastic, but veins can be a pain.
Metering is tough, especially in mixed light. nothing a bit of trial and error can't fix though.
