    Ilford SFX 200

    Has anyone ever tried Ilford
    sfx 200? I am wondering how close it is to Kodak HIE. Does it even come close to the same infra red effects? Thought I would try it on the property here this afternoon with all the trees the barn way in the background, and with any luck big fluffy clouds. Will my R60 filter be strong enough? Worked great with HIE. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Don

    It's an extended red film, not true IR, but it is still fun and gives decent effect with the filter in place.

    Make sure to use a proper IR filter like the Hoya R72; I tried this film first with the Ilford supplied SFX200 filter but wasn't impressed. With the Hoya filter I got much more dramatic results with this film.

    My filter is a Nikon and worked great with the HIE. Don't really want to buy new filters unless it will really make a hell of a difference.

    The signature look of HIE comes from the lack of anti-halation layer, and that gives a dreamy effect. I don't see that with the SFX200.

    Yes.

    Not trying to be one of the "why didn't you search first" guys, but if you do search "SFX 200", you'll find many prior apug threads on this film. Happy reading.

    Could use a bit of Vaseline on the filter.
