Used for photography with infrared films. lnfrared film is also sensitive to ultraviolet rays and the shorter wavelengths of the visible spectrum so it is necessary to filter out all but the infrared rays. R72 passes only infrared rays above 720nm RM90 passes only that above 900nm. Often used in crime detection, medical photography, detection of distribution of vegetation, etc. In ordinary photography with infrared film or infrared color film, the Y(K2), O(G), R(25A) and other filters can also be used to change the contrast or color effect.

For the price and as i will only use it occasionally,a good buy.
As my camera won't focus due to the image being too dark, it's been a case of framing the photo with the camera on a tripod, manually focussing, then carefully attaching the filter and taking the shot.
You need to read up on the web about how to process the images for best results, but the filter is definitely very good, and allows some sharp pictures. Do a search on "Infrared" on photography forums like Talk Photography.
Another forum member reported that they tried a cheaper filter and had major issues with uneven exposure across the frame, but when they bought the Hoya filter this completely resolved the issue.
I've always tended to use Hoya filters and as ever, this one doesn't disappoint.
If you have a previous generation dslr in the cupboard then this is a good way to get proper ir looking pictures with very little outlay and just a bit of effort with a tripod/release.
Makes you go "WOW" at pictures of places you have seen a million times before so cant be bad!
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.
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. : )

Hold it up and look through it. Humans don't see infra-red. If you can see any light, then it's not a true IR filter. This filter failed that test!Published 7 months ago by Paul
