I was attempting to clean a stubborn 'welded' dust spot and scratched the CCD IR filter in the process.

The filter is easily removeable from the camera with disassembly, and would be just as simple to replace except Nikon says they do not sell the IR filter covering the CCD. Instead they want to charge $700 for a replacement entire CCD board.

Many people have modified their D70 camera to photograph in IR by removing the IR filter.

Does anyone know of someone who would be willing to sell the IR filter they have removed from their Nikon D70? Any other ideas of how to replace the IR filter covering the CCD without paying Nikon $700?

You help would be greatly appreciated.

Gary.
