    SFX cuts off around 740nm. Try Efke 820ir with the R72 filter, it cuts off at around 840-850nm for deeper IR effect, but is very slow!!

    does it work with normal B&W film and a 850nm filter, too? @herbert-4

    @onehandbandit ... Regular B&W cuts off about 690nm. It's still a bit responsive to IR but the exposure will be VERY long with reciprocity failure. SFX will work with R72 filter with very long exposure and bracketing, and choosing the best one. RG830 or Wratten #87C are too dense (start at 830nm) and worked best with real Kodak High Speed IR that cut off at ~950nm. Nothing analogous is made today, but close is Rollei IR 400. It cuts off at ~820nm and works well with R72. SFX looks best with #29 red filter, dramatic rather than IR on it's sweet spot. Read this: www.lomography.jp/homes/herbert-4/blog/2844-efke-ir820-film… Enjoy. BTW... presently, deep IR requires something like a Sigma SD15 with hot filter removed and RG830 over lens + manual focus and exposure.
