    I have about 10 rolls if 120 IR film but I have no dark red filter and I'm afraid I'll be wasting the film without it.

    Did you use diafine for any specific reason, do only certain developers work with IR film?

    Thanks Pete

    Stone I really like the flat negative from Diafine great for scanning. And developer should work with IR.

    You can pick up IR filters on ebay for just a few dollars

    I dislike the filters off eBay, the last genuine Hoya I bought was great until it was humid and fogs like Leo & Kate were standing next to it, it's an old version of Hoya's MRC that bubbles and doesn't handle humidity well. After that experience I'd just prefer to wait till I can afford a B+W filter.

    Hi Stone for the amount of IR pictures I will be taking all I wanted was something that was low cost.

    I have ePrey supplied Bower 720 nm and no-name Chinese 760 nm IR filters that so far, after two years, seem fine. My genuine Kodak Wratten Series VII 89B from 19-ought-64 still works too; used it in August on my Yashica 124G! Prices on the Big Names(tm) are a trifle sobering for infrequent use.

    I also use this film in 4x5 and 120.
    Have found it very difficult in large-format pinhole camera however.
    Your result is beautiful and encouraging :smile:

    That's true, I probably won't use it much either... But... If I'm shooting an image through my Mamiya lenses, why would I put black market glass in front of it... I guess it's worth the extra to guarantee the glass is clear and reliably dark red for IR

    I use the affordable Chinese eBay filters. They work fine, though I have no way to verify the stated transmission wavelength. Used with HIE and also d*****l long exposure with acceptable results.
