    Decided to order infrared film from Freestyle but can't make up my mind on which one to opt for.Rollei or Efke.
    Suggestions please.

    lol well you will get a lot of opinions!

    I use the Rollei with a #87 or sometimes an rm72; you can see some of my stuff on my site.

    I had a much easier time getting a good IR effect from Efke. Rollei was a different story, I never had any luck with it at all. I've seen good results with it from others, but I went through 8 rolls of 120 and never got anything I was even close to being happy with.

    Here's an example of the Efke
