Is True Infrared Dead???

Just interested in hearing everyone's thoughts and experiences!
The film is difficult to get, difficult to process and my experience with Ilford SFX had been dismal at best.
Is it possible perhaps to obtain an infrared look with Photoshop Elements??
All comments appreciated!

Not quite...
I believe Rollei have recently introduced an extended red or infrared film.
Ilford's SFX isn't bad if you use the right filter, but nothing else really matches the glow of HIE - this is because HIE had no anti-halation layer, whereas most others do.

If you want to go digital, you can have the IR blocking filter removed from a number of cameras. With the appropriate colour balance and/or filters, this gives good results.

If you're in the States, there's Efke IR 820 Aura at Freestyle, it doesn't have the anti halation coating.

Ah, it was Efke, not Rollei. My brain got twisted...

Efke took over some of the old Maco formulas, including Maco IR820C. I though it was good stuff.
I never did it, but you could turn the regular IR820C into the Aura version by presoaking and drying the film in the dark before you loaded it into the camera.
This removed the AH layer, giving it an HIE - like glow.
If you process the stuff yourself, it's highly recommended to do a 2 minute presoak immediately before development to remove the AH coating, which IIRC could interfere with certain developers, and certainly discolour reusable devs.

Nice timing, I actually brought up infrared just a day ago with my friend.

Unfortunately the hot mirror in my D80 is extremely strong and makes the R72-filter style of infrared photo nearly impossible.. then I remembered I have a fully functioning D40 on my shelf collecting dust.  It works fine except the flash (useless for IR anyway).  The thing is the only replacement filter I could find was from Life Pixel for $180 (for a tiny piece of glass?). 

Anyone know where I can get it cheaper?

Edmund optics would be one place to try, but any scientific or optics supplier should be able to provide a range of suitable filter glasses

Here's some instructions I found for the D40:

Most of his pictures are broken, and I've seen a few tutorials around the interwebz.  Honestly that part isn't what worries me.. especially since the D40 is already semi-broken, what can I lose.

I've got a friend who works at an eye-glass shop in town.  Maybe she can help.. heh.

Do you think it'd work to just have an IR filter cut to 29.59mm x 25.27mm?  It worries me that he says stuff like "Does not have to be 100% accurate" and leaves out the thickness.  I e-mailed Life Pixel asking for the dimensions, but even if they give them to me I'm worried the coating on an IR filter would get messed up if someone cut through it.

rfader...I'm living dangerously jumping in here because I wouldn't know a Rollei from an Efke if one jumped up and bit me...but you did ask if you can obtain an infrared look using Photoshop Elements.  Yes, you can.  I know...someone is going to call me "Cheater," but here goes:

Edit; Full Edit; Enhance: Convert to Black and White: Infrared Effect

At that point you can play with adjusting intensity, contrast, and RBG, unless you're pleased with the result.

Just the basic steps; I did not adjust contrast, etc.

If you want to see the original image and the "infrared"one with more contrast, just click on the image at the bottom of this post.

I also found this website for creating an Infrared Effect and retaining the color, but you may need regular Photoshop, not Elements:

While it's not true Infrared, more an faux Infrared process thanks to swapping the green layer of the emulsion with a purple dye, Lomography has just announced the Lomochrome Purple 400, set for release in July.

I've got my order in. I'll be sure to update when I run some rolls this summer.
