I'm seriously out of practice shooting infrared film. This roll was largely overexposed to the point of no return, but I was able to scan these three. As always, they were shot using a deep red IR filter and these were processed using a Rodinal stand process, 1 + 100 for 1 hour.

    I'm about to try a roll of Efke through the Pentacon Six. I think I understand the basics-expose as ISO 25, use infrared filter-but any tips?

    Hi @alex34, I have used iso 8 as a more successful starting point with the Efke IR (with a 72 red filter), but it is really only a starting point and you generally need to bracket at least until you get a feel for the light. Other than that, you won't be able to focus or compose with the IR filter on the lens, but your lens may have an IR etching for focus. Have fun!
