Wow- I'm sort of confused... I just bought a roll of Rollei infrared 400, mostly to try out and goof around with. I was thinking of taking some portraits with it, to see what kinds of effects/results I can get with it...

Anyhoo... As I'm doing some more in-depth research, now that I've actually got the film in hand, it seems like the more I read, the more questions I have.

So...

1. Do I NEED to use my red filter with this film??? What about other filters???

And...

2. Can I develop and print this just like any other b&w film??? I generally use Ilford Ilfotech DD-X, but also have a bottle of PQ Universal...

3. Any other advice/tips that I should know about???

If anyone could give me some basic pointers, I would really appreciate it. Thanks, fellow APUG'ers
