The IR Chrome Filter
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 without the need to channel swap. 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 minimal 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.
**Due to the exceptional thickness of the IR Chrome glass, these filters may not be compatible with stacking additional filters, lens caps, or lens hoods. 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.
