Sony F3 IR Cut Filters

Does anybody have any recommendations for an IR cut filter for the F3?

I've found this one from Schneider True-cut 680 IR: https://www.schneideroptics.com/ecom...=1511&IID=7144

Schneider also has a True-cut 750 IR:

Would the 750 be sufficient for the F3 or would the 680 be a better suit?

Thanks,

Brent

I would go with the Tiffen T1 that was developed specifically for the EX-1 since its basically the same sensor.

BTW I generally don't feel the need for an IR cut with F3. Its much better than the EX-1/3 but there is some IR issue so a T1is a good idea to have.

Thanks for the insight Leonard.

I had an issue with the F3 recently with stage lighting, wasn't nearly as bad as the EX3, but still something I want to take care of.

I'll look into the T1, thanks.
