Opteka specializes in manufacturing special optical devices for the past several years, would like to take this opportunity to introduce a newly developed product called the "HD² Infrared X-Ray Effect See-Through Multi-Coated Filter". This filter makes it possible for you to see images that are normally invisible to the human eye. It sounds like science-fiction but it isn't; this fantastic new product has been developed using the most highly advanced optical technologies available. This filter will filter out 99% of light seen by the naked eye only allowing infrared light through so that technically the naked eye can see 100% black when the filter is in place. Multi-coating prevents light reflection, ghost light...etc, making images clearer and sharper. On your digital camcorder, turn the "Nightshot" function on - the naked eye cannot pick up the high contrast black, so with the infrared filter and Nightshot combination, for example, it will help you see in the images provided, that we 'accidentally' spilt some permanent ink on this document and the text is now impossible to read. However, when we attached the filter to our Sony 'TR250PK' camcorder, the writing is clearly legible through the ink - thus the x-ray effect! You will be amazed with the power if you take the time to experiment and experience its capabilities for yourself. If you already have a digital camcorder with the Nightshot feature and are interested in experimenting with the X-Ray effect, this is by far the least expensive method, giving you the results you are looking for. Just screw on the filter, switch on the 'Night' feature, and you are ready to go!

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I put up one of my photos that has been one of my best efforts. I used Picasa to do the simple conversion. I could tweak it better but its late.
You will need lots of light (and right now its way to hot when the best light is available). Exposure time depends on your cameras sensitivity to IR. Please read up on your camera before ordering this and complaining that your shots are not what you wanted. Its not the filters fault if your pics turn out bad :-)
I am not sure what the difference in the glass is between the Opteka and the Hoya. The Opteka costs half as much.
I do recommend this item.
And you have to cover the viewfinder or light will leak in. I just hold my thumb over it. I'm sure there are better solutions but my thumb is free and I always have it with me. I can't see through the viewfinder but if I use liveview I can see the LCD and the KR will focus fine for me so far.
So I do usually a photography in the deep range of infrared.
The effect you can have from this filter is not so dramatic, starting from 720 nm, but I do the same a lot of very satisfying images.
