Urgent Need of 4 x 4 IR (IR680) filter

Hello,
I am in Australia and in urgent need of 4 x 4 IR (IR680) filter. I have had a Tiffen on order for well over 6 weeks and it looks like it's not going to get here in time for job in 10 days time. I can not have contaminated blacks, is anyone aware who would have stock on hand for sale.

Many Thanks

Have you tried to email Ryan at Schneider (its a Schneider filter). I'm sure you can find on this forum somewhere.

ok, maybe it's just me. but, i don't get the IR problem everyone is talking about. Is this a per camera basis type of problem because I have not seen any problem with the output of blacks from my ex1.

Hi Nathan it's a combination of lighting conditions and reflective material. It will show up most when the source lighting is from QI lights Redheads, Blondes, making them more brownish. If you do a search on this site for “IR Contamination” you will find plenty of examples. It really depends on the type of video work you do, I do a lot of theatre work and interviews on larger set's that use this type of light and I want my blacks to be black and not brownish.

oh ok. well thanks for the heads up. I'm going to stay away from those lights. Usually I provide my own lighting anyways. This sounds like reason enough to get some kinoflo diva's.
