Description

Note:

This filter is only for infrared modified cameras. With a normal, unmodified camera, the effects shown cannot be achieved.

The camera has to be converted with one of the following filters: 280 nm (Full Spectrum)

 

The weakest infrared filter is a 550 nm long-pass filter that allows the spectrum to pass from 550 nm to the deep IR of 1,200 nm. This orange piece of glass is hardly interesting for black and white infrared photography, but offers the possibility to generate an image with blue sky and red foliage. This is very close to the analog infrared film "Kodak Aerochrome" - an image effect that many infrared photographers are looking for. Post-processing is a bit more involved because a double channel swap has to be done (red-blue and green-blue). With the channel mixer and some experimentation, many other image effects are possible. As the weakest infrared filter, it can also be combined with a great number of other infrared filters.
