    They should help me get better pics at the Auto Show.

    a IR filter blocks certan wavelengths of light, one of the most popular being the R72 filter, it blocks all wavelengths of light greater then 720nm pass through it, pictures come out of the camera like te top left one in the pic below showing a typical IR workflow, exposures are much longer then normal and most times require the use of a triod, most IR photos are B&W&Blue, however with PS you can do funny things to them

    Looks like a load of rubbish to me :big grin: I think it's just filtering certain lighting out to make certain shots more favourable, so people buy them from them. I haven't heard of a filter that is in effect an x-ray spec filter :big grin:
