Hello all,

I am considering making my Yashica Mat an infrared only camera, or at the very least shooting a good deal of infrared with it. I've shot about 3 rolls so far, and they look great, especially portraits... However, I have a problem. Shooting wide open at 1/60th is often my perfect exposure, however, that gives me little or no depth of field and at close distances the focus error becomes evident. I know I could use a tripod and stop down, but I'd ideally like to keep the ability to handhold. Is there a way to adjust for shooting infrared? I don't see a dot on the focus knob. Also, would it be feasible to have someone shim the GG for infrared? Or would it be easier to just back focus all my shots a bit? How much, if so? I want to be able to go all analog with my shots but it seems they need heavy sharpening using alternative techniques to get good images...

thanks
