    Thanks,

    I don't know about sponsors, but RetroPhotographic carries that, as well as the whole range of Heliopan IR filters. That's where I got my IR695 in 39mm thread.

    Harrison & Harrison sells it in the US. They don't have a website and I have their phone number if you want me to pm it to you.

    First try with 820IR /400

    I've posted two entirely unimpressive shots taken from my first roll of Maco 820 /400 (Thanks for the film, Diane!) in my gallery. I was using a 25 filter and found that there was very little IR effect in these shots taken around mid-day. I took some without any filter and then some with the 25, camera metered in my trusty AE1: ASA 400, Rodinal 1/25 at 9 minutes at 68║f, Sprint stop bath and fixer. These are negative scans with no post processing.

    I'm going to go out and get some other filters and also shooting at 800 asa.

    Developed for 20 minutes in Neofin Blau, after a 2 minute presoak (which came out greenish blue). Four inversions every minute in the beginning, decreasing to every two or three minutes in the end (I get bored and do something else between the inversions).

    No stop bath.

    Dumped in 100ml of 60% ammonium thiosulfate at the end of developing, at which time the developer should be well and truly exhausted. Agitated vigorously for two minutes, then let sit for three more.

    Wash as per "Ilford method", hang to dry.

    Negatives look very nice! The ones following the meter seem spot on, 2 over is as obviously overexposed as the 2 under are too thin. Contrast is fairly high, but we'll see how they print (tomorrow?) before I recommend changes in the development.
    Well, that was a while ago...

    But now I've printed one of those negatives for two different print exchanges, and I'm impressed!!! I had plain forgotten that an 8x10" print from a 35mm negative could look so nice, even with grain. The grain structure is visible, but very smooth. Even sky and clouds look good! Shadow detail was better than I had expected too.

    My enlarger has a colour head (i.e. diffusion enlarger), but I printed unfiltered on the rest of my old Oriental Seagull paper. The film obviously has a potential for quite high Dmax, and I think some of my highlights were way up on the shoulder. But I won't advise cutting my development time - at least not until someone else has tried shorter times. I'll use a "proper" fixer next time just to be a bit more "normal".

    From what I can see the combination of Bessa-L, 21mm Color-Skopar, Heliopan 695 filter and Neofin developer must be just about perfect.

    So what is the conclussion on this film ?
    the 25 filter is to thin to give any effect ?
    increasing effect from 29 filter through heliopan 695 to 715 ?
    Speed (TTL) is 400 ISO as promissed ?
    Development times a per techsheet ?
    I can't access the gallery right now so I havn't seen samplepics
    More comments on this film ?
    Morten what about you ?
