I've considered modding an old camera for IR but it would be more for fun so I'm wondering if a filter would work ok.
I came across this one. Anyone have any experience with these? I thought it may be cool for some situations

Work?....yes, but it will pretty much neccessitate a tripod due to the long exposure times. The IR cut filter in your camera is pretty good at blocking most of the light at the wavelength that you're trying to capture and your're left with the dregs from which to pruduce the exposure.
An IR modified body, on the other hand, will have expsoure times not too far removed from those of a normal shot.

Thanks, I'm fine with using a tripod.

I've got one of those Hoya R72 filters on an unconverted camera. I think I calculated the light loss one time.. somewhere between 20-30 stops I think. Noon sunlight and my exposure was ISO 3200, f/5.6, 30s. But you get some really cool stuff and it's a lot of fun to play with.
