    Since Kodak has now discontinued infrared film can someone suggest a
    suitable replacement?

  3. I don't think there is a "true" IR film available. Kodak
    film had sensitivity extending well into the IR range below
    visible light. Other films, like Konica's, really are just
    extended red films which will give something of an IR effect
    but are not suitable for scientific purposes.
    You will find some spectral sensitivity data comparing
    films at:

    And a listing of IR films at:

    I think Kodak still makes a true IR film for aerial camera
    use. Some sizes may be adaptable to sheet film cameras.
