    You can use certain IR wavelengths with night vision goggles...Mr. Bond.
    I've started using Efke Ortho PL 25 film recently for portraits and I've been developing under red safelight, and everything is a-okay. I've posted one of this batch in my gallery ("Beth"). No fog in the first dozen or so sheets.

    Actually, there are several folks that do use the IR Night Vision Goggles for cutting film, or developing by inspection. For re-spooling film, and getting the paper backing positioned correctly, the IR NVG may be just the ticket.

    Yes, APHS in diluted paper developer (bringing it down to 'film strength') and Efke Ortho in 1+12 Rodinal.

    Seriously? The IR Night Vision Goggle is the best accessory I have for loading holders and cutting film. I use an 87 IR filter on a 7.5w Kodak "beehive" safelight, directed to a white wall. Using the NVG, the entire darkroom is bathed in a soft glow. Its almost as if I'm working under a bright Thomas safelight.

    Another vote for IR goggles for working with film loading - I have been using them for a few years and have found them to be worth every penny they cost me.
