Works very well with my Mamiya 645 lenses and Fuji X-T2 body converted to full spectrum. I'm in love with infrared photography, a different way of looking at the world...

IR photography on a budget.

I was looking to get into IR photography, I just love the colors you get in the IR spectrum. Looked at purchasing an IR camera, $500 to $750. Not an amount of money I want to spend on what is an experiment. Saw this filter and it rocks. I get the colors that I am looking for and I can experiment to my hearts content. Is this something I want to pursue, I dont know but I am having fun with it. I highly recommend this filter if you want to experiment with this type of look.

Buy one!

This thing is a lot of fun! The prices are lower than they were years ago, the image results with a sony a6500 are great!

exactly what I was looking for...

I used to shoot IR film years ago and loved it. I have wanted to convert a digital camera to IR but haven't been able to just yet.. This filter works well on my Sony A7Rii for now at a much more economical price. It doesn't replace an IR conversion, but it goes a long way.

I thought it would be interesting to merge the uniqueness of a Lensbaby Velvet 85 with an IR filter. Both IR photography and shooting with the Velvet lens are new for me and I am loving the experience of learning and creating.

I got a dud

At first I thought it could be a light leak but after my second roll with the same irregular pattern on the image the coating didnâ€t apply correctly making the images completely unusable. Shame... I was really looking forward to try it some IR shots.

Nice IR filter but scratches easily!

I bought this filter a month ago, and have been trying to learn how to take infrared (IR) photos with it. (Back in the 1970's I had worked with B&W, and color infrared film, and I really enjoyed the visual effects I could get.) After using this IR filter a few times, I am starting to find the sweet spot for taking nice B&W landscapes with it (5-second exposure, with tripod, ISO 400). My only concern is that today I noticed 2 small scratches on the outside surface of the filter. I have been using filters (mostly Hoya) on SLR cameras since the mid-1970's and know to handle them carefully. I was very surprised to see these scratches after so little use.

This one will work with all DSLR digital cameras as an introduction type lens. The higher grade 82, 87, 92, and 93 do not work with all the cameras

question

How many stops does this filter add to the exposure time?
Asked by: Anonymous
An R72 filter will block about 7 stops of light but it will vary depending on the time of day, time of year and the anti aliasing filter that is built into your camera. Different times of the day and year have different amounts of IR light which will affect your exposure times. So you will need to experiment.

question

I recently purchased a Nikon D7100. What kind of results, if any, can I expect if I put one of these filters on it?
Asked by: Anonymous
I wouldn't say it gives you true infrared capability, but it does give interesting effects. I find the results look best after conversion to B&W. In my experience it blocks as much as 10 stops of light so is only usable with a tripod.

question

Can you use this if your camera's internal sensor has already had an IR conversion?
Asked by: Bill
If a camera has had the IR cut filter removed, it is still sensitive to visible light, so the R72 filter will block blue and green light from getting to the sensor. Yes, the R72 filter will be necessary for the camera to see infrared light only.

question

will this work on sony alpha cameras? i heard you need to modify the camera in order for this to work? I have a7s and a6500
Asked by: Krys
I have not tried it on the camera.I have heard that you need to modify the filters on the sensor so that it only sees infrared light.The filter is very dark to the normal eye, but the film has no problem receiving the infrared. you would think that no light is getting through. Good like!
