Heliopan 740563 overview

  • 1Description

The Heliopan 40.5mm RG 780 (87) Infrared Filter corresponds to a Wratten 87 filter is designed to help capture images of how a subject reflects or transmits infrared light.

Infrared light waves occupy the space in the electromagnetic spectrum behind visible light due to their longer wavelengths. Many surfaces and materials react to, or emit infrared light waves differently than visible light waves, which provide the potential for photographs of subjects or subject properties that are otherwise invisible to the human eye. Such images require an infrared-sensitive medium such as infrared film or a digital photographic sensor which may be more effective when used without the infrared-blocking filters that are frequently built over them.

Conventional light sources such as the sun, photographic strobes, or incandescent lighting may be used to provide infrared illumination. However, because infrared films or digital photographic sensors can be more sensitive to the relatively higher energy and shorter-wavelength visible light those sources also emit, the effects of infrared light can be otherwise obscured. The Heliopan 40.5mm RG 780 (87) Infrared Filter makes it possible to capture images of how subjects are illuminated by infrared light by blocking near-infrared, visible, and ultraviolet light waves while allowing approximately 88% of infrared light waves 780nm or greater into the lens it is mounted onto.

This filter is constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity and features a thin brass filter ring to minimize the potential for vignetting while enhancing durability and jamming prevention.

  • Designed for use with infrared film or digital camera sensors by filtering out near-infrared, visible, and ultraviolet light
  • Allows approximately 88% of infrared light waves beginning at 780nm to pass through
  • Effective for infrared films or other media sensitive to infrared wavelengths 780nm or above
  • Constructed from Schott glass for optical clarity
  • Each glass surface includes four layers of anti-reflection coating to prevent internal ghosting and reflections
  • Filter factor of approximately 200x reduces exposure by about 7.6 stops
  • Thin, brass filter ring helps to prevent vignetting, jamming, and provides additional strength
  • 40.5mm front filter threads allow for use with other filters
  • Plastic case for storage and transport

    Heliopan 740563 reviews

    40.5mm RG 780 (87) Infrared Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ifrared Photography This is an excellent filtre. It works well on my 5x4 large format camera. I typically shoot medium format, and medium format infrared with an 87 filtre. This is a fine piece of German glass and is of excellent quality. The quality is superb. May I suggest this tool to you if you are in the market for an infrared filtre. I do not believe you shall find a better piece of glass. Read some reviews or read the manufacturer's website if you will. Allow me save you some tyme: buy it.
