I already have 60D for 9 years, and it was my initial intention to modify it since I wasn't using it much (it is somewhat bulky).


Now, a question: Should I remove all filters, or only IR filter and leave the front (dust) filter and ultrasound shaker in place?



Anyway, my 450D(a) will go to retirement it seems...
Hi Bojan,

I would be inclined to try to remove the IR filter only and keep the dust cover in place as a basic protection to the sensor unless it causes you any issues such as:

1. loose fit due to removal of IR filter (but it should be possible to pack that out, maybe even 3D print a neat spacer if required) or

2. if it introduces any secondary reflections more noticeable perhaps due to the wider bandwidth (who knows? - test)

On the issue of 3D printing you could also re-use the IR filter to return the camera back to normal function when required by 3D printing a holder for it allowing for placement in front of the mirror box/behind the lens mount, as I think I have seen you do before for another possibly round? filter.

Best
