I`ve seen infrared film offered in Minox cartdidges and heard of Minoxers slitting 35mm infrared film into Minox format.What is infrared film used for?What do the results look like?

Lance, I am glad you ask this question. You open up a new chapter here in FAQ: Minox Infrared Photography. <p> There is an excellent <a href="http://www.cocam.co.uk/CoCamWS/Infrared/INFRARED.HTM"> Infrared Photography FAQ </a> website.

<p>Infrared film also has special application for espionage. <p>Microtec once sold retrofitted Infrared Minox EC camera set for special agents. <p> This Infrared Minox EC came with a 8x11 flash, modified with infrared filter. The EC lens was recalibrated to focus at document copying distance. <p> Equiped with this Infrared Minox EC and flash set, a special agent can copy secret document at office without being seen, as he was copying document with infrared light on infrared film.

I`m wondering if infrared film records heat,like police helicopters with forward-looking infrared that shows glowing image of heat source (hidden person,car engine,etc.)and would show up on negative as glowing heat source? A ghost hunter/author I met uses infrared film to record images of "ghosts" or "spirits" at haunted places.Anybody heard of this?
