Infrared photography with Mamiya 7ii


Recommended Posts

Dear all,<br>

I have had a Mamiya 7ii with 43, 65 and 150 mm for almost a year now,

and I am very satisfied with the results.


I have been thinking of trying out IR-photography with the 7ii. I have

searched on the net, but don't find too much info about this

combination (I have <i>no</i> experience with IR-photo).


I would be glad if someone could give me a few words regarding

experience with IR-phtography and the 7ii. How to get a descent

metering? Any particular issues? All info highly appreciated!


I would also appreciate info about film & filter, although this is of

a more general nature.

<p>I use Kodak Ektachrome Infrared in my 7II with the panoramic adapter, and if I'm no to lazy, I use either a Wratten #12 or Wratten #15 filter. Most of the time, I just use a B+W 099 filter. I usually shoot in broad daylight using the sunny sixteen rule. For this film, I start at EI 250 and bracket 2/3 stop on either side. I situations where I do have to meter the shot, I usually use the camera's meter and meter off a gray card.

I use Konica IR 720 (120&35mm) with my Mamiya 7 - it gives

deep black skies without being to over the top with the infrared

effect - especially good for landscapes. Dev could be perceptol

1:1/ 7 min with the film effectively rated at Iso 3 when used with a

+ 3 stop 025 red. Typical exposure would be 1/2 second @f11 on

a bright sunny day...
