Polaroid PLFILIR72062 overview

  • 1Description

The Polaroid 62mm 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.

    Polaroid PLFILIR72062 reviews

    62mm IR720 Infrared Filter is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Affordable IR Filter that Works Finally an affordable screw in IR filter that works. This is a true 720nm IR filter as far as all of my tests show. Unfortunately, there is only one true IR film left on the market, Rollei, which is still very sensitive to visible light, in my experience about 32x (5 stops) more than to IR. The similar B+W filter is much more expensive, nicely made but seems to transmit more visible light, and the Cokin (supposedly 820nm) gives similar results to the Polaroid at the penalty of about 1 stop in exposure and about double the price. With digital, both perform similarly. I just wish that this filter were available as a 75mm square that could be easily moved in and out; however, even as a screw in, it is still possible to focus and compose with it on the lens.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money. I bought 3 filters, 77mm, 62mm, and 52mm. All of them have different densities, the 52mm is the darkest, followed by the 62mm, and then the 77mm being the lightest density. I can easily see the differences in the transmission of light through the three. They got thrown in my scrap drawer to use for projects other than photography. A Hoya will be my next purchase.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too much red; not true IR If you're looking for a deep red filter, this is fine. If you're looking for the bright-white foliage of true IR filters, look elsewhere. This one is cheaper for a reason.
