Re: filmscanners: When if Provia 100F a poor film to scan...underwater :-7

An often-raised thread on the various Infrared Photography lists concerns 
using one or two layers of unexposed, processed, E-6 film as an IR filter 
for flashes or sometimes even behind the lens. Several posters have 
indicated that it works pretty well, but is not as good as a filter 
designed for the purpose. That would indicate that unexposed, processed, 
E-6 is relatively transparent to IR even though it may be almost opaque to 
visible light. Might this vary from one E-6 film to another? Probably, but 
I would guess only in degree, not in kind. That is, I would expect all E-6 
film to be relatively transparent to IR.
