Notes & Caveats
Expect to see false colour and to work the image hard in Redcine-X to develop your look, including heavy curves, inverting and transposing channels etc. Mono or Duo-tone images are often most attractive.
This filter transmits a wider range of wavelengths than any single lens is designed to accommodate at one time. Near-IR focus will be different from visible focus, potentially resulting in split or haloed focus. For best results you must filter at the front of the lens with colour or IR glass to choose the part of the spectrum you want to work in. Mixed sources of light can also show up the same focus issue.
Not all lenses perform equally in IR. Some will exhibit hotspots (if this is an issue, watch out for our upcoming IR-only filter), some will have internal reflection and flare issues, and some very modern lenses may appear darker than expected in IR due to their sophisticated coatings.
