    I want to try the kodak IR film. What ISO and developing do you suggest? How to meter light? With the 89B filter or without?
    thanks!

    I rate it at ISO400, meter through the filter and bracket one stop either side.

    Unfortunately, the kodak film has been discontinued, unless you have a stock of it, or have a source you'll have to try one of the newer alternatives. Rollei, and Efke both make an IR film now. Digitaltruth.com has a good comparison of the two.

    I've also been very impressed with Ilford SFX 200 rated as per their site's directions.

    If you can get ahold of it, lemme know! HIE has been MIA everywhere I look. I used to rate it at 400 but the negs came out too dense. Up until the cancellation of the stuff, I would shoot it at 50 ISO and then develop stock for 8 1/2 minutes. Efke IR820 is probally the most similar, but it has to be used with a 72+ filter. I just ran out of my stock of HIE, so I am looking into the Efke w/ a #87 filter.

    i have found some rolls of kodak, but from 50 to 400 iso are 3 stops..... Sure that is 50 ISO the right speed? For developing i have some HC110 or Ornano ST20 or D76. What do you suggest to use?
    Thanks

    Set the camera at EI/ISO 200 through a Red 25 filter. Or set the light meter to EI/ISO 50.
