    HIE was the only really IR film the others are only get almost to the IR regions!

    So fill up your freezer with HIE!

    Thanks
    Currently there is no replacement for this film just as there never has been a replacement for HIE's sister film 2475 High Speed Recording film.

    Kodak was the only folks to make the sensitizing dyes for such extreme IR response. Not sure if it's patent protected, or trade secret protected. Probably some pretty intense organic chemistry to make it.

    Kodak ceintairly wasn't only one to make deep ir emulsion. I have old eastern german ir plates in my fridge. I doubt they still have any ir sensitivity but in their better days they had their max at 850nm. And there were plates with max at 1050nm. So it is rather matter of cost, stability and demand.

    Look into the history, there have been several emulsions going even further into the IR-spectrum.

    There is somehow the belief around that HIE was the sole `real´ IR-film. Yes, unique (as most films are...) but not sole.

    Found a store that still has fresh Kodak Infrared. I bought 20 rolls and I think they might have 12-15 left.
