    Link doesn't seem to be working.

    What brand is it, and how much?

    The B+W 093 IR filter is $100 at B&H.

    I have the filter I linked to (except that mine is 67mm), and I would recommend it.

    It's only $20. What do you really have to lose. Get it and play. If you think it sucks put it back up on ebay and get some of your money back.

    I can't say anything personally about the infrared filters.

    But I have a very good B+W circular polarizer and a not so cheap off brand CPL. There is a big quality difference in the final product. That filter is also a bit on the high side. I have been thinking of sending one of my older DSLR bodies (or doing it myself) to modifiy it to IR only. And I was thinking of the 830 range. Again no expert in the IR department though.

    I do by cheap off brand items on occasion. But filters I have tried the less expensive ones. And am now back with just buying the good ones.

    you also need to consider the cut off point. what type of results are you looking for , as that vision should influence which type of IR filter you use (not brand, but cut point)
