Hey folks, I first searched the net to ask this "film" based question on another forum but to be honest none of them have the level of user we have here on the digi forum, so I thought I would just put this out there and see what pros may have as a recommendation.

I am working on a fairly artsy project right now involving Dream recreation and I want to use infrared (IR) films. I have not used them before so I did lots of reading and think Im pretty much ready to roll. The only problem is this,

I am shooting with an Elan 7ne (my backup camera for the 20D I usually use) and I have read that the true kodac HIE IR film is so sensitive that if your new 35mm camera uses internal infrared film allignment that the allignment beam will fog the film. I do not have a date back camera so Im not worried about the fogging the date imprint light can cause, but have been unable to find out if the Elan 7ne has indeed got the infrared film alignment.

So has anyone had any experience with this? At $12 to $15 per roll I want to be sure before I get in too deep. And I wont be shooting this digital as I will be pan developing these in a true darkroom form. Thanks folks, much appreciated, Jeff

This is taken from the Canon website as it pertains to the EOS ELAN 7N/7NE...

Film Speed Setting
ISO 25-5000 automatically set in 1/3-stop increments according to DX code. Can also be set manually from ISO 6-6400 in 1/3-stop increments. High-speed infrared film cannot be used.

If you get into IR you might want to check if Kodak still offers the film in 150 foot rolls. As I recall they were not listed in their catalog but in mid 1986 the cat.# was 160-4149 and the cost was 47.86 wholesale. It took 6 week to get. Maybe that off the record cat# is still good. The film was called HIE 417. The price is likely up a bit.

I have not opend that notebook in years. Anyone want to know the development times for Tri-X in rodinol for a cold light head. IR was 1:50 @24C for 10 min. in Rodinol BTW
