Hello all,
we are going to shoot with Sony F-3 a TV drama that will shoot outdoor most of the time, we will use ARRI/Zeiss high speed T1.9 lenses and shooting a lot with height ND filters, is anyone has any experience shooting with F-3 on this conditions and is the F-3 is suffering like the Alexa and the Sony EX-1/3 from Infra-red visibility and we are have to use a Infra-Red filter?
please advice, thanks Yaron.

It's technically "far red", not IR, but yes, same as the Alexa and EX1/3. The same filters that work for them, work for the F3.

Hello David,
As I thought we have to use this filter, do you have any experience with this filter? on what conditions we have to use it? in what conditions It's most effective and so on.
thank you for your answer, Yaron.

Because it cuts out wavelengths that you can't see, the only way to know for sure is to A/B test with and without it.
