    Thanks for the info on the 5 dot holders being IR proof, all my Fidelity Elite's have 5. Next time I order film I'll be getting a box of Maco 4x5 IR, then I'll find out if the bellows on my Toyo 45A are IR proof. I previously not heard anything bad about them.

    Yeah, you have to be aware of the kind of materials in the photo gear when shooting IR. I bought a Calumet 6x12 roll film holder once with the intention of using it for shooting Konica IR in it. I found out very quickly it's darkslide was not IR opaque and it's seals leaked IR in a bad way. I traded it for my Anba. Some of the older wood holders are suspect too because wood veneer is translucent to IR. Thicker wood seems to do okay. And be sure your darkroom has solid walls in that respect, a cardboard or visquine plastic blockout over a window may be merely a sheer curtain at IR frequencies. I recommend a layer of heavy duty aluminum foil over the window first if using those materials, even better is a sheetrock panel set into the windowframe.

Although I don't really wish to have to carry the monorail around to make IR pictures, I might use it for portraits or nudes with my flashes (I'll put a deep red gelatin on the flash and see what it'll give with IR film)...
    I have used Maco 820c in my Horseman 5x4 with bag bellows & long accordion with no problems (Fidelity film holders). I'd say go for it!

    Hi Pete ! there's only one problem with that... you see, the kind of IR light we have here is different that the one you have in Norway... it cuts through walls :-)

    Well, being serious, I think that I'll try the Linhof Technika (that is easier to carry) first. It's good to know that if this doesn't work, the Horseman will, though. Thanks for the tip.

    I have found that the darkslides for the most part are IR "Proof". It's the plastic that holds the film holder together, around the outside of the holder, that leaks IR light.

    I have found wooden holders to be great at keeping the "Wood" efect to a minimum.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.
