Hoya B-58RM72-GB overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 58mm 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-58RM72-GB reviews

    58mm R72 Infrared Filter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 58 RM72 Infrared Filter Wedded to my Canon Powershot G9, the Hoya RM72 59mm filter produces truly real infrared pictures. The union of the 58mm filter, the Canon adaptor, and the G9 camera produces images that look like real infrared developed film, and the G9 does this without the hot spot in the center of the image like some other digital camera/lens combinations. The filter requires the Canon lens adaptor, LA-DC58H Lens Adapter (or deneric equivalent), which is threaded to 58mm filter and designed to fit over its extending lense. To see examples of this camera's pictures, bth alone and in combination with the Hoya R72, @. With infrared, you definitely see things in a different light. Highly recommended!-Steve Burt

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Results! For a change, I wanted to experiment with infrared images and didn't expect such pleasantly dreamy resultswow! I was concerned about losing detail in the shadows and the highlights; however, the tints, tones and shades of gray and the resulting contrasts have been beautiful and transitional without losing the fine details. The only pitfall is that the filter blocks light like a welder's headset. Just be sure the frame and focus are set before taking the image. Most importatly, don't forget to bring along a trusted tripod. My exposures averaged about two minutes. My gear: 35mm DSLR Canon 30D and exposure settings were ISO 100, averaging with an aperture of 8.0 Be prepared to use photo software... mine came with my camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have bought this first I wanted to try some infrared photography and bought a different filter to this which just gave me red images. After I couldn't get it to work I decided to just buy the r72 and see if it was any different. It was completely different! A near infared filter that actually works! The only thing you need to watch out for is the lens to which you mount it as some have a fairly serious hotspot. Filter is great, don't bother with any other brands just buy the one that you know will work and skip the mess around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Infrared without camera mods The RM72 is a pro quality optical filter that passes only the deepest reds and the infrared spectrum peaking at 850 nanometers. Experience has shown me that my DLSR, even with its internal IR blocking filter, still passes enough infrared spectrum to create striking, high quality IR images with this filter. However, if your camera's interneal blocking filter stays in place expect up to 30 second exposures in bright sun at 100 ASA. This filter is a professional quality accessory.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great filter Great filter. Especially if you are new to IR and just starting out. Works great on my Olympus E520 and E620. When using the Live View w/Boost I have no problems seeing/focusing or metering.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from works well with Fuji mirrorless I got this filter to try out with my Fuji X100 and XPro1. I've heard about hot spots with some lenses and filters, but so far so good with my equipment. No hotspots, and I can see the image through the finder before the shot. On a tripod, of course.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for Sony Night Shot Very happy with this filter for use on a Sony DSC-F828 with Night Shot mode activated. Set ISO to 64, capture mode to RAW, stop it down with ND filters as necessary, and shoot using a tripod. The infrared results are very good.
    Date published: 2012-01-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Economical Infrared Pictures This filter is a great way to get started with infrared photography. It's easy to use on an unmodified DSLR and provides excellent results. The only drawback is long exposure times when low ISO settings are used. I have to increase the shutter speed 11 EVs on my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi. At an ISO setting of 100 this results in 2 minute exposure times. But it is well worth the wait.
