I bought this filter to use with my Canon 450D SLR camera. I have only been using it for black and white photos so far but I have been very impressed by the results.
I word of advice though. You MUST use tripod as I have been using 20, 25 and 30 second exposures with a low ISO (preferably 100). Sadly the weather has been poor with overcast skies and the greenery of the trees and grass rather lacking, it is January after all!
Can't wait for the summer when the infrared will look stunning.
I have been tweaking my photos on iPhoto to increase the contrasts and exposure, the pictures are looking pretty cool.
I am a complete novice to this kind of photography but I am impressed with the results.

This is great. We bought this brilliant little filter to take on a photography course in 2008. It not only inspired the pro photographer to get back into infrared photography, but it's been great fun for us too. Be aware that you need to compose your shot completely manually - exposure, focus, etc, as the filter appears completely black so the camera can't focus or do anything through it. You'll also need a tripod, as the exposure needs to be longer to allow the infrared light through. Depending on the conditions this could be between 5 and 20 seconds. On a bright sunny day 5 to 6 seconds is more than enough. You can shoot in colour or black and white mode. Infrared makes some realy interesting alternatives to photographing almost any subject that isn't moving, but I think it's at its best for green foliage to create the appearance of heavy snow in the middle of summer. Excellent value for money. You won't be disappointed. Have uploaded some photos to illustrate but they're not displayed in the right order! To get the best idea view as colour, infrared colour then infrared colour conversion. There's also an infrared black and white but of a different subject. Should give you an idea of what's possible anyway.

Infrared photography is intense, yes there are long exposures to deal with but the results are mindblowing. This is an excellent piece of well built glass that will serve for many years I am sure. I've had only good results and despite the opaqueness, the optical quality is astounding. highly recommended.

WARNING: Do not look directly at the sun, even through an infrared filter, although it is darker, it will still burn your retina and may lead to blindness. I just wanted to add this in, maybe it saves someone's eyesight. : )

Hoya 52 Infrared R72 generates excellent Infrared pictures..Quality is very good..I have Nikon D50..It makes great ir photos with this filter.. Also Nikon D50 autofocus works perfectly with Hoya Infrared 72.. The colour of this filter is very dark red..looks like black..if you look at the viewfinder you see nothing.. just it's black..An exposure adjusment between +1 / +3 is necessary for good histogram value.. Please use tripod, it is essential with this filter because of long shutter speed as much as 3 second by f11 or f16 values.I recommend remote control but self timer also is ok on the tripod. this filter has 720nm wavelenght..You will be very happy with it.. it worths the money you spend..

Works as claimed. On my Samsung GX20 DSLR it requires a very long exposure to get any sort of image and focus is guesswork but hyperfocal helps. My Canon G9 does better and can take a shot at a reasonable shutter speed using a tripod. The surprise for me is that my Canon HG20 camcorder will video in IR with ease. I'll try to catch me a few aliens who are apparently visible in infrared range; funny that I thought they were green not red...

Iam a camera novice so using an IR filter was at first a disaster. After a couple of days its down to quite hard and getting better. The filter comes in its own protective container which is where it will stay when not in use. Its surface feels slightly rough and I have the feeling it needs to be treated with extra care. I am quite pleased with it and am thinking about getting one with a higher light blocking factor.

This is an eccellent filter but check that doesn't create the spot effect with the lens you are going to use. Googling a bit there are loads of informations on internet, but I missed an important one by mistake and I bought it thinking to use with my Canon 18-55 lens 3.5-5.6. This is one the lenses that are no good with this filter!!! So be careful!!
Eccellent and quick shipping anyway!!

Bought this for some infra red photography on my Nikon D60.

A lot of information says that certain cameras (like the D60) will not work correctly with this filter, as the camera itself blocks too much infrared light. Works fine for me, you just need a tripod and a 20sec+ exposure, just make sure you've set the white balance up.

Recommended for anyone who wants to experiment with infrared. Excellent filter.
