IR filter advice?

I went to 2 so called specilist photography shops today and asked for a IR filter for my Dslr Camera which is a Sony Alpha and the first camera shops said they you cant get a IR filter.

The second shop had one but they said “we do not think it will work on Digital Slr cameras.

If i brought a IR filter would it work on my sony alpha? i think its a 55 size filter my sony takes.

I really want to take photos like the ones found on

Please help.

Before you buy an IR filter for your camera, you should check the IR compatibility of your camera which is manufacturer specific. Some camera models are more or less sensitive to the IR spectrum than others and this is mainly due to a filter mounted directly in front of your camera’s image sensor. There is a measure of IR to visible light specturm ratio that will determine whether your camera is sensitive enough to capture an IR image with a filter, like the Hoya R72 for example. I think that most camera store salespersons are fairly ignorant to specific camera sensitivity to IR, therefore they wouldn’t know in the first place. They no doubt wanted to save face despite their lack of knowledge by suggesting such a filter would not work on your camera. There are many places on the internet where you can obtain information pertaining to manufacturer specific IR sensitivity. You can start with the digtial IR flickr group, I can’t recall the specific message board thread pertaining to sensitivity, but you can take some time and read the various discussions on the matter. It’s in there, and as with anything involving the achievment of any goal in the art of photography, your learning curve is only dependant on what you are willing to commit to it. Good luck.

Be aware, the photos in the link you provided were shot using infrared film and filter combnation. The images produced by a Digital Camera will not look the same. You must have a pretty good grasp of photoshop channels editing skills to achieve much of what you see that are IR images produced by a digital camera.
