    Don't know about the SG price for SFX-200, why not just call Ruby and ask them?

    I'd be wary of buying film out of the states unless it's in commercial quantities because everything that is being posted these days is being X-rayed to bits by the post office dweebs and their ilk in the name of Global Paranoia in the alleged war against terrorism.

    Hi,
    Sorry, a few more questions about IR film again...

    1.) Heard from somewhere (can't remember already) that certain cameras are not suitable for IR film, e.g., if you use IR film on them the film will probably be over-exposed or something. Is that true?

    2.) Do I have to load the film into my camera using a dark bag because of the film's extra sensitivity to light?

    Thanks for answering my queries!!!

    Regards,
    -Michelle-

    to answer question 2,
    ilford sfx 200 is a near infrared film and does not need to be loaded in a dark room or black bag...

    other ir films like kodak HIE need the above mentioned.

    I have no idea for other cameras, but for most (if not all) Canon EOS cameras have a quirk with IR film. They don't cause the film to be overexposed, but because they use an IR mechanism to count the number of frames, they will fog the bottom of the IR film.

    You camera manual should state that whether it can accept IR film or not. At least for my EOS 300 it does state that IR film is not recommended for use in this camera.

    And if I'm not wrong, however, it only affects certain brands of IR films. Search the Internet for more details on this.
