    never used a FZ1 so not sure but can it take pictures in 0 lux or total darkness?

    if it can, i guess you get a Hoya R72 from cathay photo i think they do have stock with them, must ask a few times, cos sometimes they have stock but they dun know. Price not sure last time i bought 58mm i think 30+ 40.

    IR filter literally i guess is filter out the IR. den depending on the density you bought, the amount it filter would be different.

    when to use.... i guess anywhere with IR source.

    IR filter doesn't "filter out" IR, it's the other way round

    It blocks visible light but lets IR pass thru' (usually, IR filter looks like a very very dark red filter, almost like black)

    If you digi cam has a built in filter to block IR, then IF filter won't work for your camera.
