Jon and Fotohuis might have some experience with this film. You could try sending them a PM.

I just acquired a 21mm Super-Angulon-R, a lens I have owned before. I want to do some infrared like this, which was taken on Kodak HIE, no longer made.

Before I buy a filter (72mm is what it takes) I want to know whether the #25 or #29 red filter will work with the available films from Rollei, Efke, and Ilford, and which film + filter combo will produce results closest to the Kodak material with a #25 filter.

From the feedback we have had, it seems like most people regard the Efke Aura version of IR film to be the most similar to HIE, but it is still very different. The Rollei film has finer grain, and Ilford SFX has lower sensitivity. You will get some IR effects with #25 or #29, and some people report excellent results, but if you want the strongest effect then I'd recommend an R72 filter: http://www.digitaltruth.com/store/cart/ ... ilter.html

I want to be able to do hand-held work similar to that shown.

Looks like none is quite like the Kodak HIE, so I may be out of luck. I may go with the Ilford for reasons of availability.

The Rollei 820/400 IR film you can just use handheld. At least in my Yashica Mat 124-G and in my M7 (Leica). Use the film with a Hoya 72R or Heliopan RG 715 IR filter.
E.I. around 12.

Not bad. What exposure?

OK, I might be able to use it with an f/4 Super-Angulon-R and a deep red filter #29. Right?

The Heliopan RG715 is a #88A filter ("Black IR") which takes away 5F stops.
A dark red is indeed a #29 filter but you can not generate any "wood" effect with this film like the Kodak HIE.

OK, I have 67mm, 72mm, and 77mm #25 filters for my 180 Elmarit, 21mm Super-Angulon-R, and 350mm Telyt. In addition, I have ordered a '720' filter for the 21mm SA. I also have an E48 #25 Leica filter that fits the 28mm Elmarit-R, 50mm Summilux-R, and 90mm Summicron-R.

I'll be curious to see what effect the standard red has with the Ilford SFX film.

OK, I just received a '720' filter 72mm for the Super-Angulon. Will the Ilford SFX film record this range?

The fact-sheet for Ilford SFX can be downloaded from this page, but I found it to have a very different look from Kodak HIE.
My preference was for the Kodak film, but your own opinion may differ. Film choice is a very personal thing.

The 720 filter is the lightest of the deep filters. Looking through it at foliage, you can see some effect with the eye alone. My question is what is the difference in response between the Rollei film and Ilford SXF, and will the SFX film record with this filter?
