product has imperfections in the plastic. with a Hi intensity light you can see ripples and bubbles. I think I will stick with IR film and the old way of using a ND8 at f16
This is a nice starter filter for infrared photography. I am a fan of the Cokin P series anyway and have other filters for it and the P007 is my newest addition. It performs great. Easy to mount and use - I would definitely recommend.
I like Cokin filters and use them quite a lot. I think the quality is good and also like the fact that I can use them on multiple lenses with different filter diameters by changing only an adapter ring. The issue I have with this filter is more a function of the design of my camera (Canon EOS 30D). This camera has an Infrared cut-out filter that is intended to improve color rendition in the visible spectrum. This filter works well for this, but it makes infrared photography mostly useless. When using this filter it is necessary to take very long exposures, even in bright light (30 seconds or more). This makes it impossible to take photos of people and this also introduces a lot of noise in the image. Also, every image produced has a very strong, deep red color-cast as if I used an ordinary red filter. I would like to use this filter and get some interesting false color images, but it appears this is not possible.
