Hey Everybody

 

For an upcoming shoot, I was testing a few frame rates and so on.

 

Unfortunately I didn't have a IR Cut ND on hand. Since I was going for

full open, I sacked a regular ND1.2 and a ND.9 together.

 

The test was shot on the Alexa (first series). 

 

I was quite surprised when I saw the footage. The scarf I'm wearing in the image has in real life no color!

Thru the whole test footage it has this reddish color. I my opinion quite strong...

 

Is a missing IR CUT that strong?

 

What's your thoughts.

There are many articles showing IR pollution on different fabrics such as this test:

Keep in mind that different cameras and sensors have different sensitivities to IR, and some are more sensitive to near-infrared than infrared and need a different IR cut. Lots of articles on the topic for you to search out. Here's a good one:
