Does anyone know if wratten IR filters like the 87 and 25 are still available ? I can't seem to find any in the UK. Even e-bay doesn't list any.

87s are available from Hoya, Tiffen and so on. Not many actual gel Wrattens about these days. Might still be possible to special order them in via Kodak.

JP: At 32 + VAT I would be experimenting with sweet wrappers ( and getting fat! )

I gave a Hoya IR filter away not too long ago as I never used it. The person I gave it to never used it either.

I purchased a Lee filter system for my Digital SLR at Teamwork, who are based in Foley Street, London (not far from the Telecom Tower).

I got the Lee no. 87 polyester filter with the plastic surround, cost just under 10
