LEE Filters 87P3 reviews

3x3" Infra Red #87 Infrared Polyester Filter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheapest Way To IR In This Size Use with a 3 x 3 filter holder. An inexpensive way to filter light and allow only wavelengths above 730 Nanometers (non-visible Infrared light) through to the sensor or film. Most glass filters that work on 77mm lens throats cost a big multiple of one of these gels and and maybe an appropriate holder (Cokin P?) with adapter ring. So, if you want to try out IR photography without out spending the big bucks, or already have a holder for gels, this is a good choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I bought this and cut it to fit my Canon 11-24mm lens. This particular lens doesn't allow for glass filters fixed to the front due to a large front element. I was able to cut 4 smaller filters out of this one sheet for my lens. I will say that it is super easy to get finger prints and scratches on the gel filter. I found an easy fix for this to buying plastic tweezers to place and remove the filter. The filter fit perfectly into an unused CF card case. Then both the card case w/ filter and tweezers go into a little accessory bag in my camera bag. I have used the filter once and was happy with the results. Looking forward to using it more during summer months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for Sony Night-Shot Cameras I needed a good IR-only filter for my Sony digital camera that has the IR Night-Shot feature to shoot IR photos in daylight. Not wanting to invest a lot of money into this experiment I thought I'd try this filter. I cut one into a circle and mounted it into an old daylight filter holder. Sony cripples all their Night-Shot capable cameras by limiting the shutter speed on full-aperture only, so they can't be used in this mode in bright light situations. You need to stack this filter with another filter to cut down the IR levels in daylight for these cameras. A Wratten Green filter is perfect for this purpose, Hoya G being a good example of one, it's what I use. Then the camera's crippled Night-Shot shutter speeds and open-aperture are at the perfect range to take images from full sunlight to anything in between. When the IR light levels are too low then just remove the Wratten Green filter and you are all set to shoot from that light level all the way down to total darkness. I highly recommend this filter combo to any Sony camera owner that wants to use their camera's Night-Shot mode for creative IR photography under any and all lighting situations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great IR Filter Good for what I needed. Note, this filter DOES NOT WORK with Rollei IR film. Also, do not try to clean it with alcohol.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great for the price! I purchased this to see ifI could make it work for my sigma 8-16 since you can't use a screw on filter for it. It kinda worked, but not good enough, so I cut it down to insert for my skylight 62mm to create a makeshift IR for my Super Tak 35/2.3 lens. It worked incredibly well on my KX IR.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not so useful for digital photography I wanted to try this filter with a digital camera, but this IR filter passes no visible light, only wavelengths above 900nm. It's well made,like all Lee filters, works well for B&W film photography. For digital, a better choice would be something like a Hoya RM72 which cuts at about 720nm

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy again. Bought to use on converted DSLR. Adds a slightly warmer brown & blue tint (which I prefer) rather than the solid monochrome of the IR850. Produces images just like my Tiffen 87 in profile editor. Nice to be able to use on several lenses rather than having to buy many different thread sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good starting filter I use this for infrared film as well as digital infrared photography. The effects of the filter are just what they should be and it works great. The filter itself doesn't fit so well in the 3x3 cokin gelatin holder and i need to use a darkbag over the sides when i use it to keep out reflections. The filter is very reflective and shiny and unless all light between the lens and filter is infrared there will be reflections.
