Rollei Infrared is the optimum creative tool, this medium format film can be shot in two different ways.
First - as a straight black and white film ISO 400, with a slight ghostly result due to the infrared sensitivity. Alternatively you pair it with a deep red filter to disproportionately focus on the IR spectrum!
Trees will be bright white, people will glow, the sky will be dark black, and you will be rewarded with some of the most dramatic images straight out of the camera. Note that this will increase the necessary exposure significantly (it will respond at sensitivity of ~ISO 12-25)

As a company Rollei is most famous for it's cameras - particularly the iconic twin-lens Rolleiflex - but this German-based company founded in 1920 has also had a long history of making B&W films. Unfortunately the parent company didn't survive the digital revolution of the 90s/00s but the brand survives today under licence to AgfaPhoto - who continue to support emulsions old and new.

I was hugely impressed by this fabulous film. I shot this with a 1958 Rolleiflex T fitted with a 720nm Hoya filter and rated it at ISO 6 which I think is about right. It was rotary processed in ID11 for 6m30s at 24C which gave a some great results. Grain is (surprisingly) minimal and you can get a decent Wood effect if that's what you're looking for. The black skies that I was hoping for eluded me, so more experimentation (perhaps my 760nm filter) is in order. Sample shot is a merged scan but is otherwise unprocessed - Not exciting but demonstrates what the film is like.
I shot this 6X9 in medium format which only gave me eight frames, so I didn't get to try it out under many different scenarios, but the ones I did try, it really impressed me.
I shot a few with a filter but the rest I just shot normally, with a filter it behaves like most IR films and is very good in that regard. But what I shot without a filter really impressed me. It produced really otherworldly results with excellent sharpness and very fine grain.
I'm not sure I'd shoot this 6x9 again as when I've got so few frames I want something really dramatic, but I'd absolutely shoot 6x6 or 35mm.
Great film. Shot with an IR680nm filter to get a decent IR look. Would recommend a 720nm for better effect.
Great film, this was my first try at Infrared and I over exposed a stop or two. I didn't bracket, I just shot the whole roll using iso 5 on my light meter at f8. Some of the highlights got burnt to a crisp. I live and learn.
