The C-2000 is great for IR photos without modifcation
4 May 2012
Summary: This product has been out of production for some time, but it is working just as I expected and have no complaints. It is only one of a couple of cameras that can shoot infrared images without modification.
Summary: I am a professional photographer, and I use this camera extensively. I have had shots taken with it published in The Washington Post and many other newspapers. However, there are a few problems. The on/off button is easily confused with the shutter button.
Pros: The image quality is outstanding
Cons: Poor ergonomics and very delicate lens extension mecanism easily subject to damage

Excerpt: The camara takes excellent pictures for my needs. Web, printing, etc. Its small enough to carry around. Problems: The lens when it opens is frail. I ended up buying the bayonet that is used for the wide angle lens attachment. It basically a cylinder that screws into the area around the lens.
