    Re: Spy Gear Goggles for handling panchromatic films?

    i saw a thread on here a couple years ago about this and thought what a great idea it was for haneling film in total darkness. back then this technology was very expensive. seeing a price of only $30, im ordering it from amazon this week.

    ive been tray developing a few sheets at a time so this will be perfect.

    I need to sort and cut some panchromatic film in the dark and wonder if these might be useful. With the recommended #3 dark green filter I can barely see/

    Here's what I use. I paid around 60 bucks

    I CAUTION these are a monocular, not a binocular! I strap this to my head with a bungee. VERY narrow depth of field, no depth preception. Having said this these are a miracle for me. I could not load Jobo reels without these. There are two sets of LED's one is visible NIR, I taped these over so I wouldn't accidentally activate. You watch a little LCD TV screen in the goggles as the display. Film emulsion is BRIGHT white in IR. Has a focus wheel that lets you clearly focus on a subject in your hands. I can read fine print in total darkness. DOES NOT effect slide,negative or black and white films at all. I don't work with IR film anymore, I am sure it would fog . These are a TOY, I am sure there is real IR viewers like they use at Kodak for working in the dark.. Don't pay more than 80 bucks. I have a spare pair in storage just in case I would be screwed without these.

    I posted about these search for Jakks Pacific Spy Net goggles
