Polaroid PLFILIR72072 overview

  • 1Description

The Polaroid 72mm 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 PLFILIR72072 reviews

    72mm IR720 Infrared Filter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond Red Want to try infrared (IR) photography? This is the filter to use. If you google IR post processing the first page of reseults will get you started in converting those strange red images into some cool IR images.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price for an excellent IR filter I have used IR filters with infra red film before but wanted to try it with a quality digital camera and was surprised how effective the result was. This photo was taken at ISO 1600 f/4 and 1/13sec with a Sony RX10 M3 from my front door on a sunny winter afternoon. The filter is pretty dense so long exposures are necessary. I don't think a filter with a higher cutoff than 720 nm would be useful. Of course, the filter could also be used with traditional infra red film but that is getting very scarce.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Try & experience IR You must use a very clear lens (aperture f2.8 or higher), and a tripod because the exposure will take, at least 1 minute (usualy something between 1 and 2 minutes).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from does what it is supposed to A nice cheap way to explore IR photography. Still a lot of work to do in post, but tht is true in any case. Check some IR photo websites first to see if your camera will even work with IR before you buy
