INFRARED FILM

Here is a link to a site which rates infrared film.

http://www.photographyreview.com/Black,and,White,Film/PLS_3119crx.aspx

Infrared Range refers to region of maximum sensitivity. For a quick rule of thumb, the lower end of the range is red at 700 nM. Between 700-400 nM is the visible light range. Lower than 400 nm is ultraviolet and beyond. The shorter the wavelength (smaller the number) the higher the frequency. Cost is from Glazer's in Seattle, (#) is the number of exposures per roll. 

Film Mfg.  Infrared Range Ease of Use Cost  Availability
Kodak HIE 750-840 nM /goes up to 900 nM Pain in the butt $11.52 (36) Widespread
Macophot 820 nM Unknown $8.19  (36) Less Common
Konica 750 nM /goes up to 820 nM  Good $6.58  (24) Hard to find
Ilford 740 nM Good $7.41  (36) Good

Here is a handy chart to illustrate the differences between Kodak, Ilford and normal B&W film. 

Remember to use a #25 (filters 600 nM) or #29 (filters 620 nM) filter, or else it will act like normal B&W film.

NIGHTVISION OR THERMAL VIEWER?

Confused about the difference between nightvision cameras and thermal viewers? These links help to explain.
