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, 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!

  • Anti-reflective (AR) coated to increase light-transmission and reduce flare and ghosting
  • Laminated for long term weather durability
  • Fused, dual-glass construction engineered to replicate Kodak Aerochrome IR Film
  • Designed for use with a Full-Spectrum digital camera only!
  • No channel swap or advanced editing techniques required, unlike other IR filters

*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 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.

  1. John Loeffelholz

    I love this filter ! ! ! As promised it has amazing color rendition without having to swap channels in post. It’s also possible to use the view finder instead of having to use live view which can be a challenge on a sunny day.

    Just received my copy of the IR Chrome Lens Filter, and it performed as expected. No layer swaping, high-quality filter with no distortion. Looking forward to the summer, to really try it out in nature. Also, excellent service from Kolari with good communication. Fast delivery, well packaged, as per description, Triple AAA dealer, recommended!

    It was a bit long to get mine, but I knew it before buying since Kolari tells everything about production on product page, and gives regular updates. And I must tell I had good interactions with Kolari service when asking for delays: nice and straight answers from William, thumbs up 🙂
    I just played a bit with this filter, sadly it came after all my photographic opportunities for this summer, I should have ordered it earlier, my fault. But after a week playing with it, I can say it gave me good results. I am stunned with colors I got OOC, even if it was not the strong red like in sample shots, more on the orange side. I suspect it comes from a combination of my custom WB and lights I got when shooting (mostly overcast), I just had to play with HSL sliders to correct that.
    This filter broadens the uses of a full-spectrum converted camera. Nice 🙂

    It took some time for me to get mine, during the quarantine and all that fuss with delivery service, but I can definitely say it was well worth the wait. I simply love the results of this filter. It’s pretty much the one that lives on my full spectrum camera and the images I get are amazing. Highly recommended. Kolari Vision did a magnificent job not only with the filter but with the customer experience altogether.
