How I Did It!™; Create Infrared Images on Your iPhone Recording Now Available for Purchase

Update April 30

Just this week I received both the Moment Case and Drop-in Filter Mount, and the new Moondog Multi-Camera Filter Mount V3 (MMCFM V3). 

Manufacturing delays with the new Moondog Multi-Camera Filter Mount V3 (MMCFM V3) and a shipping SNAFU with the Moment Case for the 13 Pro Max caused the delay.

I’m excited to share that the new MMCFM V3 from MoonDogLabs is resolving the focus and light leak issues previously experienced with the 13 series phones. It’s unclear WHY these problems are no longer an issue. I can only guess that the V3 with its narrower openings for the 26mm and 77mm lenses and the distance it puts the filter from the lenses have something to do with it. 

Bottom line? I’m now using the Moment case and V3 filter mount and I’m getting the IR results from the 13 Pro Max that have eluded me until now. Stay tuned for a more comprehensive post about creating IR with the new accessories.


Previous Note

Note to iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max Users: 

Since this webinar was created, the iPhone 13 Pro Max and other iPhone 13 phones were released

This video tutorial does not address issues that prevent using the iPhone 13's Native camera to create infrared images. 

While wonderful results are achievable with the 13 phones, it's necessary to use other camera apps including Camera + 2, Halide, and Lightroom to create IR with the iPhone 13 phones. 

Here is a link to my recent Blog Post about some of the issues with the iPhone 13 and some work-arounds for IR until Apple makes some changes.

One of the favorite and most convenient methods for creating IR with the 12 Pro Max is to use the native camera and Night Mode. With the dark infrared filter on the phone, Night Mode activates and allows us to create a wonderful IR image, handholding (without a tripod). 

Due to changes introduced  in the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max, using the native camera to create IR is not an option at this time. It's unclear whether an iOS update may allow IR to be done with the iPhone 13's native camera in the future or not. 

Wonderful infrared images can still be created with the iPhone 13 Pro Max with other camera options including Camera +2, Halide, and Lightroom for Mobile. For these options, a tripod is recommended for the best results.

If you are using the iPhone 12 Pro Max or earlier, this video covers everything you need to know about how to create and process extraordinary infrared images with your iPhone! 

If you are using a 13 Pro or Pro Max, everything in the video applies to the 13 Pro phones EXCEPT instructions about using the native camera to create infrared images. – Rad
