Actually you can't, and this makes me sad. Not because I want normal,
but because I want UV.

Usually when people hack digital cameras like this they just remove
the vis-pass filter. Then you can add IR-pass on the lens or just
shoot broadband. The D70 has an IR pass filter in the camera, on the
sensor, where the vis-pass used to be. So you can never shoot
broadband with it. I suppose there's some chance that the particular
IR-pass filter might still let in some UV, but then of course there's
also the glass lens filtering it, etc etc.

Anyway, we need a broadband / UV-capable camera too I think. So any
other dslrs around... they might get hacked. I really like broadband
and UV.
