Spectral transmission — B+W 489 infrared cut

No so effective at blocking infrared, with a very gradual “tail” well into the infrared range, passing nearly 50% infrared at 700nm.

This leakage is enough infrared to cause a red shift on IR-sensitive cameras like the Nikon D2H. It also passes shorter wave ultraviolet almost unimpeded.
