            What can I say? Does exactly what it is supposed to. Blocks all visible light and only let's the infrared light in. I like that it is polyester based and not gelatin, makes it much easier to work with. I cut mine up into smaller pieces to modify a couple of cameras to pure infrared and I am very happy with how durable the material is and how pleasing the results were.

                    I bought this product to block the visible red glow that comes from the IR flash on my Bushnell trail camera. While it works much better than the 87 Filter, it still allows some visible red light through the filter. I would say that it dims it by 50% which is pretty good. I haven't fully tested to see if it significantly reduces the range of my IR flash.

                      I've bought this several times to use in modifying point and shoot cameras for NIR work. The NIR allows the cameras to be used to detect underdrawings in canvas and panel paintings. The thin polyester film is easily cut to the shape of the removed hot filter. It is robust and fits this purpose very well. 87 filter material is also available if you want a cut on more near the visible.
