The Polaroid 55mm IR720 Infrared Filter is 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. Additionally, it is recommended that auto-exposure and autofocus functions are disabled during use for greater control over the results.

This filter is constructed from optical glass and features an aluminum filter ring to provide increased rigidity and as well as resistance against expansion or contraction due to temperature variances.

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.

    55mm IR720 Infrared Filter is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect filter for Ilford's SFX200 film! Optimized to transmit light only above 720nm, this filter is a perfect companion to Ilford's infrared-sensitive SFX200 B&W film. I'm using this filter on a Konica AutoS2 rangefinder... Perfect since on a rangefinder you don't focus through the lens, and on this camera the light is metered through the filter. If used on an SLR you'd focus, then attach the filter, or used the focus scale on the lens. Remember to adjust to the IR focus mark after focusing for visible light!
