Hoya B-77RM72-GB overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 77mm 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-77RM72-GB reviews

    77mm R72 Infrared Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 50.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS AS ADVERTISED MAYBE THOUGH THE IR FILTER DOES AS STATED IT HAS SOME LEARNING CURVES TO GET OVER. 1.CAN'T SEE WHAT YOUR TAKING A PICTURE OF UNTIL IT SHOWS UP ON YOUR VIEW SCREEN, MAYBE. 2. EVERYTHING MUST BE DONE IN MANUAL MODE. 3. TWO KEY THINGS TO REMEMBER IS ISO MUST BE FASTER AND F-STOP MUST BE WIDE OPEN OR WHERE YOU THINK IT LOOKS BEST. 4. YOU MUST TAKE MANY SHOTS TO DETERMINE WHAT LOOKS BEST FOR YOUR PHOTO. 5. IF YOU USE AUTO IN ANY MODE YOU WILL GET A VERY DARK PHOTO, NOT WHAT YOUR LOOKING FOR.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from RM72 works well with 5D Mark II For digital use pre focus, then attach filter or set subject at infinity. Experment a little for exposer settings. 200 iso f 2.5 medium light outside about 20 seconds. Depending on light settings will work up or down. Tripod is a must. Raw file will have a red cast convert to b/w. On museum artifacts I often leave the 720nm red to show detail that is hard to see in true b/w.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One filter - limitless new possibilities I recently decided to give IR photography a try, just to mix up the usual types of photos I captured. Every article/tutorial I read recommended this filter, and now I know why.With a stock camera, you can capture reflected IR photos that completely change the feeling of a familiar place. You can do either black and white, or use photoshop to mix colors and give the photos a surreal color scheme.I also own a full spectrum modded DSLR that captures even more IR quicker, allowing for more shots per outing.One downside, is that you have to put in some practice before you can get something usable from this. Unprocessed, the images will be mostly red/brown. You will need to have access to something like Adobe Lightroom, and preferably Photoshop as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter I've used this a couple of times since purchase and it works as expected when shooting raw images. Another reviewer mentioned hotspots, the filter seems to be even to me. Though perhaps one tip is in order: since the exposures are going to be long - block the eye piece so that you don't get light leaks from the view finder to the sensor. I would not have thought that would be an issue, but it seems it can be, particularly on full sun no cloud days.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOYA quality saved me when I dropped my new IR filter I like landscape photography and ordered a second 720nm IR filter to augment my 850nm IF filter. For me, I like the result of the 720nm filter better. As fate would have it, I dropped my new IR filter in the grass on its first use. This left smears/marks on my new filter's coating. A Google search produced various cleaning suggestions. Since it was a Hoya filter, I followed their website guidance. http://www.hoyafilter.com/support/tips-techniques/how-to-clean-filters/ Their website states Hoya's filters are hard coated. I assess this allowed me to make an uneventful recovery as the cleaning went smoothly. If I had purchased a cheaper filter (with less robust coatings), I'm not certain I would have experienced the same outcome. I am happy I purchased the Hoya 77mm R72 IR filter! v/r Jeff Smith www.ArtofFrozenTime.com

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from works well This filter blocks all visible light, as it is supposed to. This means manual focus before attaching the filter and bulb setting. Make multiple images varying exposure, check histogram. Include images that seem a bit overexposed at first glance; those may be the ones you end up using!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Produces stunning images Be aware it blocks so much light you need a tripod for 1-3 second exposures. Also, realize your resulting images are deep red and you have to remove the red in channel mixer out put red to 0, blue to 100%. The result is white leaves from chlorophyl reflecting lots of IR and black water and sky. Shot of my back FL back yard. That's not snow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I just started to use it and have a lot of fun.My equipment: Nikon D50 + AF-S Zoom Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D ED-IF.So far I used only jpeg format, and not RAW yet, Photoshop Elements 6. I am playing with black and white and merging with color layers and different Photoshop filter effects; amazing results.Obviously you need to practice a lot.
