Product Description

Opteka specializes in manufacturing special optical devices for the past several years, would like to take this opportunity to introduce a newly developed product called the "HD2 Infrared X-Ray Effect See-Through Multi-Coated Filter". This filter makes it possible for you to see images that are normally invisible to the human eye. It sounds like science-fiction but it isn't; this fantastic new product has been developed using the most highly advanced optical technologies available. This filter will filter out 99% of light seen by the naked eye only allowing infrared light through so that technically the naked eye can see 100% black when the filter is in place. Multi-coating prevents light reflection, ghost light...etc, making images clearer and sharper. On your digital camcorder, turn the "Nightshot" function on - the naked eye cannot pick up the high contrast black, so with the infrared filter and Nightshot combination, for example, it will help you see in the images provided, that we 'accidentally' spilt some permanent ink on this document and the text is now impossible to read. However, when we attached the filter to our Sony 'TR250PK' camcorder, the writing is clearly legible through the ink - thus the x-ray effect! You will be amazed with the power if you take the time to experiment and experience its capabilities for yourself. If you already have a digital camcorder with the Nightshot feature and are interested in experimenting with the X-Ray effect, this is by far the least expensive method, giving you the results you are looking for. Just screw on the filter, switch on the 'Night' feature, and you are ready to go!

Customer Reviews:

  • Very fun if you play around with it.
    What a fun filter to use. It may not be for everyone but I have produced quite a few breathtaking shots. My favorite is when I have my camera set to black and white mode....more info
  • Only Used For a Few Weeks
    I used this product for a few weeks before dropping it into the Grand Canyon. Better to drop a filter then my camera=0)
    I have a Canon Rebel XTI and used shutter speeds from 10 sec. up to 3 min.
    I got some hot spots with my 28-90mm, but none with my 80-300mm.
    I will end up ordering another one. I really enjoyed playing with it and thought the results were great....more info
  • Not recommended for Canon PowerShot S5 IS
    If there was a zero star, I would have rate this product minus zero. The impression given was that this product works well with the canon powershot series cameras. Lie! Lie! Lie!

    Poor performance with Canon PowerShot S5 IS! Hence, not recommended....more info
    Make sure you have a camera that is capable of working with this lens. After initially thinking it would, my camera did not, and I wasted my money....more info
