Has anyone used this in front of a light to get an infrared light source? Thinking small home Depot shop lights. They would be hot so I wondered if it might melt the filter.
Asked by: Anonymous
I would not use this on so-called "hot lights." You might be able to use them on LED lights, but those are generally not a good source of IR energy. But they work well on speedlights, which do have a significant amount of IR. They are flexible and you can simply wrap them around the front of your speedlight and tape it in place.

Can this filter be cut? I'm converting a digital camera to IR photography, and thinking to cut a piece of this to put in place of the internal filter.
Asked by: David
Technically, this filter could be cut to size, however, if you are trying to have one for an internal filter, I would highly recommend finding one made by a company specifically for your camera. Or get an infrared conversion done as well.
