Extremely high quality filter that justifies its higher price point with excellent performance levels. Will filter all visible light up to the 720nm wavelength, which is a strong performance level. Fits cameras with a 58mm lens thread. Will give you good results over a long time.
A little more expensive than some others. Could use a better instruction manual.
Nice performance level for an infrared filter, considering the price you're going to pay. Can select among 5 different maximum wavelengths of visible light to block, so you have a lot of versatility. You can pick from lens threads ranging from 25mm to 82mm with this brand.
Certain lens configurations used with this filter may cause reflection spots to appear in your images.
You'll receive 4 different infrared filters in this set, allowing you to match whatever wavelength of visible light you want to block, ranging from 720nm to 950nm, giving you more options for your photography. Offers 4 different lens thread options between 52mm and 72mm.
Depending on your lens, you may notice some bright, reflective spots in the images you create.
Gives you a means of blocking visible light with wavelengths up to 760nm. This filter is compatible with lenses that have 52mm threads. Gives you a good value for an IR filter, even though it may not last as long as some filters with a higher price point.
Some of these inexpensive filters may have imperfections or even bubbles inside the glass.
Budget price point for an infrared filter. Provides a decent level of longevity and performance, even though it may not match up with some more expensive IR filters. Will work with lenses that have 52mm lens threads. Claims to block all visible light below the 850nm wavelength.
May not block as much visible light as the manufacturer claims. Occasional problems with build quality.

Infrared lens filters give you the option of shooting photos that record light from the infrared spectrum. In the process, the IR lens filter blocks some or all visible light. When the filter is attached to the lens, the camera records infrared photos. But you then can remove the infrared lens filter to resume shooting normal photographs. Using infrared lens filters ends up creating images that look a lot like normal light photos. However, the colors are quite a bit different than what you see with normal light photos. Infrared lens filters are available in various strengths, designated by nanometers (or nm). A filter with a smaller number allows some visible light into the photo. Larger number filters create photos with only infrared light. A 720nm filter is roughly average versus other infrared lens filters.
