I'm moving this to the Ghost Investigation Equipment board. I'm interested in seeing if any of the groups here have run into this issue.

I'd move it to the conspiracy thread...I just watched a show on reverse engineering of UFO technology and saw those MUFON drones on the show...do I believe it? Nah, I think most UFO proof is strategically placed disinformation to keep others from seeing the real technology we're developing.

It is interesting to see Eastman-Kodak isn't producing IR film, though. It's probably just a cost cut back to work out better digital concepts, and I would doubt highly they don't produce any IR film. It's still widely used in scientific and industrial applications.

I think the so called ban is a bunch of bull. Ive been looking for an I.R. filter for my Nikon digital, and in the process have seen tons of infared equip. for sale.

Though it may be different with film cameras but i doubt it.

I just purchased a FujiFilm IS-1 IR camera a couple of weeks ago and had no problems. The ban does not exist!
The camera has three modes, normal, IR, and night shot. If you can fork over the $800.00 on the price tag, you have got an awesome camera.

No ban on IR that I am aware of. i have new catalogs coming in that list various IR cameras and attachments. I will point out though that film is becoming more expensive and less used so I wouldn't be surprised to see IR film disappear soon from the consumer market simply because of falling demand. But digital IR is poised to take over, new CCD imaging chips have extended the range deeper into the IR spectrum and these may soon become available in quantity.
