    Favorite Camera for IR Film ?

    I have only shot IR film in 2 cameras, Aries 35 III and Hasselblad 500 c/m. I like the results have been getting with both using D-76 1:1...... Still learning though......

    Out of what I have, I enjoy using my Yashica Mat 124G. Using a TLR allows the opaque filter to stay on the taking lens while the composition and focus proceeds unfettered through the viewing lens (except for some ghosting from my filter kludge). I came up with a lot of plumbing to adapt an already owned 89B filter to Bay-1, but it works.

    Some day it might be cool to get a 720nm filter in Bay-1 or adapt to a modest size threaded filter. The typically high cost of IR filters and my infrequent use of IR has held me in check.

    My first IR outing used my Bronica SQ-A and I was fearing I would wear out the filter threads!

    If HIE were still made then I would have some.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    I use my Mamiya Super 23 for 120 and my Yashica GSN for 35mm. Having the rangefinder eliminates having to remove the IR filter to compose & focus. A TLR would also be good as DWThomas says.

    I use a Rolleicord Vb with the Rollei IR filter. Advantages as pointed out by DWThomas. I found a Bay 1 to 49mm converter on eBay which would allow use of an R72 in that size as an option to the Rollei filter. I use a Cokin P holder on my Bronicas with the Cokin 007 IR filter. For 35mm I use a Hoya R72 on a drilled out OpTech flip open lens cap. This works with 28mm and anything longer. It vignettes with 24mm. It is a 52mm thread which fits a lot of Nikon lenses.

    TLRs might have been invented for IR film. I was lucky enough to pick up a Rollei-Infrarot in Bay I, so I mostly use my 'cord for IR nowadays, but in the last analysis any good TLR is a good IR camera. Bay Whatever to 49mm adapters are common and usually don't obstruct the viewing lens.

    I use my Canon FTb because of the quick up spool.

    Given the long exposure times and typical use for landscapes, a 4x5 field camera is my favourite way of shooting IR.

    TLRs are easy, but again given the slow, tripod-mounted nature of IR exposures, a good MF SLR is just as good an option.

    I have a few rolls of HIE left. I usually use a 89B filter (opaque to visible light) when I shoot this film so I always use a rangefinder, usually my Canonet QL-1.7 or a Canon 7.

    Mamiya C330 with either a 65mm or 135mm lens.

    I have a step-up ring that allows me to use the same 49mm 720nm filter with both lenses, a Paramender 3 head when I want to work close up, and both prism and waist-level finders.
