Series VII IR Filter

  1. Does anyone know if a series VII drop in IR filter was ever made and where I might find one? If one was
    not made does anyone know of a modification that I can do to an IR filter so it drops into the series VII
    lens shade on the 35mm F1.4 Lux. Thanks in advance for any info.
     
  2. B&H has them here (or here, depending on what exactly you're looking for).
    If you want a UV/IR cut series 7 for the M8, try Foto Huppert in Germany.
     
  3. B+W will make any filter you require including odd series like 7 1/2 and 8 1/2.

    While you are waiting, put a Kodak or Lee IR gel behind a UV after you cut it to a circle. It works so well I never took mine apart.
     
  4. The glass in a Series 7 is the same OD as a 49mm, so if you have a Series 7 like a UV or some other you're not using (or could buy a scratched one like a Tiffen for cheap)you could put the glass from a 49mm IR into it. That's worst-case, if you can't lay your hands on one ready made.
     
  5. Ron, did you get an IR filter for your old 'lux?
