Will a Nikon N80 Fog Maco Cube 400c & Rollei R3 like it fogs HIE?

  1. simple question, will using my N80 fog the Maco films, im curious
    because they have an extended sensitivity range which extends into IR,
    and i know for a fact that my N80 fogs HIE

    im not going to be using Cube and R3 for IR but i just want to make
    sure i don’t mess it up in the process
     
  2. Cube 400C and R3 will not fog on cameras with I.R. LED transport system.
    The sensitivity of those films goes down rapidly upon from 700 nm.

    Load and unload these films in subdue light, because of the conductivity of the (clear, R3) polyester layer.

    best regards,

  3. I am definitely not an expert in this area, but I just wanted to tell you that I also have a Nikon N80. I bought a roll of Kodak HIE infrared film and used in my camera. The only area of the film that was fogged was along the spockets, the pictures were fine. I had read that this would be the case, so I decided to try, and I got some really nice infrared pictures.
     
  4. As alternative you can try the new Rollei Infra Red-400 film, this sensitivity goes up till 820 nm and will not give problems. Recommended I.R. filter: e.g. Heliopan RG695 or RG715. Available in 35mm, 120 rolfilm and 4X5" .

    In the attachment an example shot (even late in October), just opposite of our office in Ravenstein, the Netherlands.

    Best regards,

    Robert
