  • Infrared filter

    posted by DrFremdeliebe

    Using my Canon Eos 550D with an IR-filter was always one of my whishes, but the price in the Netherlands of € 80 or more withheld me. What if such a filter didn't work with my camera ? The price of the ir-filter on DX put me over the line. My first experiments with the filter are beyond my expectations. In the full sunlight it takes with F5,6 and 100 ISO up to a minute exposuretime, so trees and clouds are moved but the results are surprising and the reactions of friends regarding the IR-photos are great.

    Of course using a tripod is necessary.
    The delivery was quick so if want to experiment with ir-photography this is a really cheap solution.
  • Good filter for experimenting with IR

    Cheap filter which is good enough for getting started with infrared photography. This filter blocks all visible light and gives a strong IR effect.
    Normal digital cameras have an internal IR blocking filter so bright sunlight, tripod and long exposure are required to get any results. Manual exposure and focus required. Modern lenses are not intended for IR and may have a hot spot problem which can make the lens useless for IR, but that's not a fault of the filter.
    Try this for a challenge. Results may not be razor sharp but interesting anyway.
  • Cheap way to get into IR photography

    As far as IR filters go this is pretty cheap. The optics appear to be nice and clear as well. Tested with my G10 using sku 19677 and was really happy with the results.
    I found typical exposure times with the filter installed on my G10 were 4 seconds at F2.8 ISO200 in bright mid-day sunlight. If shooting in colour mode the pictures will have a purple cast to them, I just put my camera into BW mode instead.I wrote a blog post on this which shows a photoshopped version of my test image http://jph-photography.blogspot.com/2009/08/digital-adventures-in-infrared.htmlThis won't work on all digital cameras, it depends on the strength of the hot-mirror (IR blocking filter) that is installed on the image sensor. Try googling your camera model + "IR photography" to see if other people have had success or failure.
    If your camera can do IR this is the cheapest way to get into the game.
  • Very good entry-level IR filter

    It's slim, the material seems to be sturdy and of good quality.Optical quality seems to be very good. The surface of the glass is even, there are no scratches and no stains.
    The filter says "850nm" but glowing incadescent filament can be seen through it in deep red color, therefore a very small amount of visible light is transmitted.
    It's a reasonably well made filter for this price. If you want to start with infrared photography, this is an excellent choice.
