    I have some Infrared film that I just bought, and I had heard something about this subject a while back and never got an answer to it. What I heard was that certain cameras cannot use Infrared film due to the fact that these cameras use infrared light to advance the film. I was planning on using my Nikon F100 with this film, does anyone know if my camera will fog the film due to this?

    The problem is with the film counter, the film is advanced mechanically...although it would be cool if the could do that with light.
    Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    I'm not sure about your camera. However, I don't think it's a matter of not being able to use it...you just might get some fogging on one edge. You could always try it and see.
