Hi, all,

are there any infrared filters for this cam issued? Or - does IR-filter for Sony F707 suit S70 cam (with special adapter ring maybe)? Or possibly S70 is not able to do shots with infrared filter at all?

Looking forward for your replies.


P.S. Partly //www.dpchallenge.com/forum.php?action=read&FORUM_THREAD_ID=36085 answered the question - test with IR-device needed ;)

Use your TV remote control, it generates an infared beam. Point it into your lens and push one of the buttons on the remote, you should see the light in your lcd screen or viewfinder. If you can see the light, then your camera is infared sensitive and will record infared.

The infared filter for the Sony F707 is a 58mm. I don't know if you can get an adapter to fit that large of a lens but you should be able to find the right size lens for your camera. Try Hoya R72 in the right mm size for your cam.

Goodtempo, thanks, you help me a lot. I'm trying to figure out what should I order to my dad (he will buy the things on ebay) - I've got lack of time, leaving to vacation soon.

My lens is 52 mm. I see it's not a very popular size at Hoya ;) Anyway, I've heard that IR filter should be used with ND filter. Which ND filter should be used?
What are the most useful filters digital cam's owner should have?
I guess - polarized, UV-, FL-D... Please, give me some recomendations!

Looking forward & thanks.
