Hoya R72 IR Filter

IR Filter


Close Up of Hoya R72 IR Filter

Here is a closer look at the IR Filter which costs approximately $50 usd. I have not had the opportunity to play with any other IR filters yet, but hope to do so in the near future. I recently got a B&W Infra-Orange 099 filter, but have not yet taken it for a test drive... It would be interesting to play with a Hoya RM90, but at that price I would consider buying the Canon 85mm f/1.8 prime lens instead!

Possible IR filters for use:
Hoya R72 (~$50) = passes only IR rays above 720nm
Hoya RM90 (~$300) = passes only IR rays above 900nm
B+W Infra Orange (~$25) = passes above 520nm
Tiffen #87 (~$120)

The above picture was really just an excuse to play with my new Hoya Close-Up Filters.
The background is a foam rubber floor mat.

I just got the 58 mm lens befor I found your tut. After reading your tut went out and shot. thank you for all the advice I would have NEVER gotten this right without finding this gallery.
I have much to learn but you have set me on the right path.
I am happy with the shots I have taken so far.
My husband has the Rebel 350 and can shoot in B&W - WOW what a difference!
