    Where did you get your film, how much did it cost, and what are the expiry dates?

    I did not buy and HIE. I kept 120 and 135 UC 400 from the hoarders. I am just cheering you on.

    I have some good news for you meticulous IR-on-tripod-with-cuttoff-filter types of photographers, (not my bag).

    Efke 820c IR film has the surprising ability to halate with slight overexposure and a cut-off filter. My first tests with 29 and 25 filters and EFKE 820c were pretty disappointing, it's no HIE. But then I did some more testing with a 092 filter and WHAMO! In most instances I have had a hard time distinguishing the HIE shot from the EFKE shot when it's printed in the darkroom.

    That being said, Efke 820c is -SLOW!!!, like ASA 1 to 6. And it needs a IR cutoff filter for the full Wood effect to be seen. But it's also available in 4x5 and 120.

    I do not shoot on a tripod with a black filter, I shoot handheld, with a 23 filter (light red) to minimize the effect of IR to a subtile halation and grain. I could buy a f1.2 lens, and a rangefinder and only shoot outdoors and probably get 1/30 of a second in the sun... but when I did my EFKE tests for Freestyle in Los Angeles, it felt a little like shooting with the lenscap on. So I hope my stash of HIE will last until someone fills the void in the IR market with a fast 900nm IR film without a AH backing.

    If your curious about the halo/aura effect on EFKE 820c see my samples on my flicker site: http://www.flickr.com/photos/schafphoto/

    I've used HIE with a red 25 filter E.I. 1250 and developing in Diafine. Big grain but lots of usable images without lots of experimentation. I think I like the halo effect as much as the infrared, to a point I can see one without the other. Is there anything similar in the market?
    Thanks

    I ordered it all from Kodak australia the people at Kodak here refuse to state that the film is being discontinued. Down here they are telling suppliers its production full steam ahead as usual. So I figured stuff it I'll but it all. so i bought all of Kodaks stocks. Cause I don't think they would know if their arse was on fire.

    I also did a phone around different film shops and bought up all their stocks.
    All of my stocks are dates 08/2008 Is it becoming hard to buy overseas?

    No, especially not film in an airpack envelope: Eur. 8,00 till 500 grams oversea (USA or Australia, whatever...), and you can disregard the 19% Dutch VAT. (But sometimes you can have import duties).

    Best regards from the Netherlands,

    Hey Stephen,
    perhaps I'm a bit ignorant but where abouts is Kodak's retail shop front in Sydney ?? Is it at their offices on Waterloo Road in North Ryde ?? I hope they are getting more rolls in after you just bought them out.
    I have been in contact with Kodak O/S and they confirmed for me that all the 35mm HIE has been manufactured and cut into rolls (I was hoping they could put together some 100ft bulk rolls on a special order !!).

    regards
    Peter
