B+W Filters, made by Schneider Optics, earlier this month released two infrared filters for digital cameras, the B+W IR 092 and the B+W IR 093. The IR 092 is nearly opaque and allows a small amount of visible light through, similar to a No. 25 Wratten gel. The IR 093 is completely opaque, allowing only IR light to pass through, similar to a No. 87 Wratten gel. Both filters are available with screw-on mountings in 35 sizes from 19mm to 77mm to fit a variety of lenses.
While most digital cameras have an infrared blocking filter built-in, there are several purpose-made infrared capable digital cameras such as the Fujifilm Finepix IS-1 point-and-shoot camera, and the Fujifilm Finepix IS Pro DSLR, update to the S3 Pro-UVIR, modified with the IR/UV blocking filters removed creating a true full spectrum camera.
