What's the filter number I need for infrared-like effect?

There is a filter you can get for digital cameras that gives a similar
effect to infrared photography. I would like to buy one but forgot the
filter number. I've done a little infrared photography in the past with 35mm
and really like the effect. My calendar from last year was haunted places
done in infrared by Simon Marsden. I like his work a lot. Are these filters
very good or just a cheap trick and not like infrared photography at all?

89 or 90. You can actually buy tailored cut off filters from this
site:
Prices seem reasonable.

You don't have to spend big bucks to convert your digital camera to
Infrared. All you need is a filter. Check Google for "Hoya" or "B&W"
filters for Infrared information to select the right filter.

I think the Sigma might be a good choice for an IR camera as well.
Just unscrew the front filter from the camera.

Its that thingy. If you figure it out,.. it's that cool thingy.

Some cameras won't allow the use of just a 89B,...the way to test is
with a Television remote. If you can photograph the red beam your camera
will work.

They're not a cheap trick, they are real IR photography, but they're not
problem-free.

There are a variety of names for these things, but "R-64" is a deep red and
"R-72" cuts out pretty much everything but the IR.

Digital sensors have an IR-block filter to prevent the color rendition from
getting messed up by IR, which the individual color filters on the sensor
don't block very well, so IR sensitivity is low, and you'll need to use a
tripod and very long exposures. The camera's meter will probably be way off:
use manual mode, shoot a test shot, look at the histogram, adjust exposure,
and shoot again.
