IMPORTANT TIPS for success shooting FPP BW IR:

  • 1. Keep the film in the all black plastic can before and after exposure.
  • 2. Load and unload your camera in total darkness.
  • 3. If you have a film ID window on the backdoor of your camera cover it with electrical tape.
  • 4. Do not use cameras with IR film transport sensors.
  • 5. Use a 25A red and a polarizer ( or 87IR filter )for the most dramatic results. (Film is sensitivity on the range of wavelengths 700 – 850 nm)
  • 6 The sun is your friend, the more you have the more IR you will see.
  • 7. Use the recommended ISO of 200
  • 8. Set your f/stop to f/16 and adjust the shutter speed for the correct exposure, remember to meter through your filter(s).
  • 9. If the light is to low to use f16 then you will have to shift your lens focus to the IR mark on the lens. See examples.

Very dissapointing IR performance with R72 filter. Ok as straight B&W film. Won’t be buying again.

I have used it but was not impressed. Don’t expect anything approaching HIE or Efke offerings. Just really just not much infrared about it at all. I don’t like to be hateful or anything but it’s really not even much of a black and white film. What I mean by that is don’t expect anything approaching professional results.
