The IR Chrome Filter
Pre-order UPDATE (9/4/19): We have been contending with several issues in manufacturing that are leading to lower than expected product yields per batch. This combined with the exceedingly high demand we’ve received for this product means that we will still not have enough IRchrome filters to simultaneously fill all pre-orders as originally thought. We will instead continue to ship the IRchrome filter out to pre-order customers in chronological order and have extended the pre-order period.
Bringing the Look of Aerochrome into the Digital Era
This Infrared+Visible lens filter is designed to make your full-spectrum digital camera (wait, what is a full-spectrum camera?) achieve the look of Kodak Aerochrome IR film, straight out of camera, no editing required. Made from a fused glass composite, this filter passes the perfect combination of light to recreate the classic, beloved look of Aerochrome with a full-spectrum camera. This means you can have the Aerochrome look with no editing and no quality loss. In development for over a year, this filter is now ready to enter the forefront of digital IR photography. You can read the story behind the filter and see more examples of it in action here!

*Sony Disclaimer: While this filter is designed to replicate Kodak Aerochrome directly out-of-camera with a full-spectrum camera, all camera models/sensors will have subtle variation and color and results will vary. Sony cameras in particular tend to create images where foliage appears more orange than red. This is easily correctable, and a modest hue adjustment from orange to red in post-processing will create the advertised results. However, be aware than many Sony models will not produce the advertised color results directly out-of-camera.
**Due to the exceptional thickness of the IR Chrome glass, these filters may not be compatible with stacking additional filters or lens caps. If you wish to use the IR Chrome Lens Filter in conjunction with other filters such as a UV, polarizing filter, or ND filter, we recommend putting the IR Chrome Lens Filter at the front of the filter stack.
