Ilford SFX

Ilford SFX

With this film and its extended range, a red filter enables the film to have an infrared effect. If shot without the filter, it behaves like a normal B&W film. This film is nice but expensive. For me the IR effect was not consistent, perhaps I just don't know how to control the effect. I took this on a very sunny day to counter all the light reduction of the dark red filter.

    @badjuju I used a Tiffen Red 25 filter. I wish I had a real IR filter too.

    That's exactly what I have thanks to my bad Internet research. I'm halfway through the roll now so it's too late even if I bought the right filter :(. Still nice photos you've got!
