Once a camera has been modified to remove this non-visible spectrum band pass filter, a new filter needs to be added to block everything but the spectrum you require and to pass the spectrum you do require.
The chart also shows the effect of some the IR band pass filters used on this site. Note that they block most of the visible spectrum below the stated value but generally pass all the spectrum above the stated value, although some I use also block the higher IR bands. Some filters allow some of the visible spectrum and this allows for what is called "false colour" during processing as this requires a mix of the IR spectrum with some of the visible spectrum. It all depends upon what you wish to achieve.
- 550nm Inspired by "false colour" IR film, as the 550nm lets in the most visible light of all IR usable band pass filters creating deep blue skies and blood crimson reds.
- 642nm This lets some visible light in, producing the most vibrant colours when processing for "false colours". Leaves are golden yellow, and skies are bright blue. B+W contrast is lower than the deeper IR filters.
- 720nm This is the tried and true classic IR filter. It allows some limited visible light for "false colour", and good contrast for black and white.
- 850nm This filter is good for a dedicated black and white IR. The camera and will produce bright whites and pronounced darks. With a custom white balance in camera, the picture is close to pure B+W without any processing.
- 950nm This filter is good for extreme contrast black and white, all visible light is blocked.
