      Yep, this is Ilford SFX 200 IR 120 black and white film, loaded in the ol' trusty Holga. I used a standard red filter and did everything else normally, except for taping up the sides of the Holga and using a changing bag when loading and unloading. You can see the IR effect a lot better in this shot. Note that the SFX isn't really a true IR film like the Kodak HIE because its sensitivity extends only to about 740nm, just slightly past the limits of visible light, while the Kodak's goes past 900 into the far-infrared spectrum. For shots like this where all I wanted was the high-contrasty effect, that's a good thing. If you're doing high-speed ariel photography or freaky white foliage stuff, you probably want the Kodak. Konica's IR is somewhere in between.
