    Infrared Type Films

    Does anyone have Black & White Infrared Films they would like to sell? I'm looking for 35mm, 120 or 4x5 film for a massive project trying every Infrared film available.

    -Kodak High Speed Infrared HIE
    -Konica 750
    -Efke IR820 Aura
    -Rollei Infrared 400
    -Ilford SFX 200 (Extended Red Sensitivity)
    -Kodak EIR (Color)


    *If you have any advice (ASA rating, filter stop compensation for Red 25A or Hoya R72 Filter, infrared focus, camera aperture or shutter speed setting.) I would be greatly appreciated

    It is going to be hard to find any of those films. Let me know if you find any of those!

    It's going to be hard to find *all* of those films.

    To the best of my knowledge Efke IR820 Aura (and non-aura), Rollei IR 400, and without any doubt Ilford SFX 200 are still in production and can be bought fresh.

    The other films mentioned will be harder to get, that's for sure.

    You might find occasionally find some of the obsolete films (Kodak and Konica) on EbeegeeBay - or someone here might have some in storage (I have a few Konica in the fridge) - but they are now so long out of production that they will no longer be within spec. Fog levels will be higher, speed lower, they may even be useless, depending on how well they've been stored. The films were quite expensive when new and had a short shelf life. If someone has a supply of 'frozen from fresh' stock - they are unlikely to part with them for a few cents.

    Efke IR 820 Aura

    Hello,
    I'm using Efke IR 820 Aura 135 and 120. You can see some examples here:
    http://www.cks-fotomanufaktur.de (- Galerie - Infrarot)
    The filter used is Heliopan 780, at f 11 the exposure time is from 1 to 5 seconds.
    Development: XTOL 1+1 14 min
    Be careful, the emulsion of Efke is sometimes really bad (pinholes!).
    Greetings, Christoph

    Just beware that outdated IR films of any brand will probably be considerably worse than comparable non-IR B&W or color films. This is due to the heat sensitivity of these films. If they were frozen, they will be much better than if kept at room temperature, but probably still not too good.
