Hoya B-72RM72-GB overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 72mm 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.

Used for infrared photography applications with digital cameras and specialized IR film.
Blocks all visible light up to 720nm for photographing subjects and details that are not normally visible.
Variable filter factor depending on ISO sensitivity and lighting conditions.
Can be paired with colored black and white contrast filters to change the colored or contrast effects with this filter.

    Hoya B-72RM72-GB reviews

    72mm R72 Infrared Filter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy Do wish the filter came with a little more instruction since I am a novice IR, but nonetheless I was able to get some pretty beautiful shots on my first outing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well I use this filter for occasional infrared photography, primarily cityscape/landscape shots. On bright days this filter allows images to be produced hand held at very high ISO. I primarily use this filter with a Canon 50mm 1.2 lens on a Canon 5D Mark III. The level of visible light pass through conforms with my expectations and allows for good manipulation in Photoshop.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used with IR camera with 590nm cutoff. Hoya filters are amongst the best and the prices and assuredness of quality service at B&H make this my first choice for this purchase. Amongst other things, I will be using it to take a professional, commentated educational documentary using a Canon DSLR video of a dog giving birth with the minimum of disturbance dring the process.Thanks,Dr. David

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Filter I do not have a converted IR sensor so I use this filter to produce monochrome IR images. It is durable and easy to use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun with middle of the day pictures I read an article about infrared photography and got intrigued with doing something differently, especially in the non-Golden Hour bright sunshine. This filter was suggested in the article, so I bought it. I have only taken a few pictures but they are fun to take (challenging my knowledge of my camera) and fun (challenging) to convert to black and white using Lightroom. If you want to try something different, this is an inexpensive way to give infrared a try.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from would recommend this filter for IR photos Bought this to try out infrared photography and so far have been pleased with the results. It sure costs a lot less than having a camera converted to infrared use only and since it is a screw-on lens it doesn't take up much room in a camera bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The new world of infrared photography I was very pleased to see the final results of using the R72 Infrared filter after spending the morning along the river. The long exposure gave a very smooth effect and the final picture was the image I strived for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for exploring infrared photography I'm new to infrared photography and decided to get this filter rather than modify my camera. The filter produces pleasing results and works as expected.
