I suppose I’m a little despondent about the digital IR results to date, but there again it’s early days. Seeing that the old Yashica will be fixed sometime in the near future, I wonder what results I’d get if I loaded it with XP2 and used the Hoya R72.
Thanks to Rob Novak for showing me why this idea won’t work…

XP2’s response drops greatly after 630nm, and has virtually no response to wavelengths below 660nm. The R72 filter’s transmittance curve doesn’t even start until 700nm, reaching peak transmittance at 750nm.
