To be sure, I have not yet done much infra-red work. But I intend to and when I do this book looks like it will be useful.
The book looks at the history of this approach, the characteristics of IR films and the films that were available at the time of writing (2001).
Unfortunately many of these films are no longer available, such as Kodak HIE, Maco 820c and Konica IR. Ilford still sells SFX-200, but this is not really a full IR film. Rollei IR 400 is still available though.
The book is beautifully illustrated - so much so that It spurs me on the get on with it!
