    Has anyone used the Rollei Infrared film? I'd kinda like to know more about it before I start spending $3 each for 4X5 sheets. I'll shoot some of it in 135 or 120 to test it out, but it'd be good to have a starting point.

    Been think about trying it myself, did used the Ilford SFX a few years ago with some good results, also the former Maco IR820 is now Efke IR820 not sure if it is available in 4x5

    Terri is person you need to talk to

    It's re-branded Maco IR 820c. Has an anti-halation backing (as opposed to HIE). Very nice stuff. Since the red sensitivity is so high, you'll most certainly want to shoot it with a near opaque filter. Anything less would be a waste of the film's abilities.

    For that matter, all of Rollei's films are re-branded Maco.
