    Try Efke IR 820 with a Hoya R72 filter developed in D-19 for a start. Meter the film as EI 100, then add seven to ten stops! Use it in small format to get the most grain, and if you really want it as grainy as possible, give it even MORE exposure.
    I was thinking of using Rodinal simply because it works with IR 820 and Rollei IR. also, I use an EOS camera so i am a bit concerned about my sprocket counter and my pressure plate. any good ideas?

    Check the manual for the EOS. It will probably say whether it is IR safe or not. Certain EOS cameras are not, and others are.

    Any b/w developer will work with any b/w film, so might as well use use whatever developer you have handy if you don't want to use D-19. The reason I suggested D-19 was to increase the grain and contrast to give the more stereotypical HIE look. If you don't use a harsh developer like D-19, expect to have to give one or two stops more exposure.

    I think they are overpriced, personally...but I am biased because I don't like them all that much as it is. If I wanted a crap camera, I would pick up an old 120 Brownie or something similar for under $5. If you're gonna spend that much on a toy camera, I think the Diana package with the book is a better deal, even though it is a bit more money. At least you get a book and a pinhole. (It also looks cooler.)
