Re: Infra red filters

I bought a Chinese one from ebay, nominal 760nm cut off. It has been fine, reasonable quality and a lot of fun for not much money. I wouldn't want to buy an expensive one yet, I'm not so hooked I see it as anything but an occasionally used toy.



(Sorry, not an E-system camera)

Re: Infra red filters

Go for one in the 700's I bought a 950 and it was too strong when used with the E30.
Ps I have a IR 950 filter going cheap!

Re: Infra red filters

I did the same thing - went with a Chinese one for about 18. As I bought it during the winter I haven't used it yet (no green foliage around just yet!) but hoping to soon.
The 'proper' ones seem to be around the ton
