I'm using Hoya R72.

But it's quite limited in use.
Can only be used in strong daylight. It's good for taking trees and plants as they tend to reflect more infra-red.

Still trying out...

How much does it cost? Are there different types? I'm thinking of trying too for my digicam....

Think not all cameras are suitable for IR photography

I know.... but couldn't find info that says IR photography is not possible for my camera yet :p Guess this is the downside of getting a less popular and well-known brand.

I was looking for this filter for quite sometime....
Alan Photo didn't have it and quoted very high price for it,
Cathay Photo could order for me but had a waiting time of one month.
Finally wandered into Foto Guide to "try my luck".
They did not have it but were kind enough to check and ordered for me :)
Got it at $25.50.

Try the web link below, it's on infrared photography and there's a section on how to identify if ur dc can take ir pics. Cheers!
