The Hoya 46mm R72 Infrared Filter is a specialized filter used for infrared photography with digital cameras and specialized infrared film. This nearly opaque filter blocks all visible light up to 720nm, enabling recording of subject matter and scenes that are not visible under normal conditions. Due to the nature of infrared photography, the filter factor for this filter is highly variable and depends largely on the ISO sensitivity in use and lighting conditions.

This filter is constructed from high-quality optical glass and is set in an aluminum filter ring to provide increased rigidity and prevention from filter jamming.

              Comments about Hoya 46mm R72 Infrared Filter:

              Given the sensitivity of the Leica M8 to infrared, the use of this filter works well to capture infrared images. In Lightroom (or any other raw editor), you simply convert the image to greyscale and adjust the magenta to suit your tastes. Try it.

                Great IR filter. Used with Ilford SFX 200 and got some really good results. It was, unfortunately, cloudy (and has been), but even with the clouds blocking some IR light, the image still retained the great IR looks.
