In this video, I’ll take a look at shooting infrared photography with two budget vintage prime lenses, the Soligor Wide-Auto 35mm f/2.8 and the Soligor Tele-Auto 135mm f/2.8. I’ve found that vintage lenses rarely have hot spots in infrared, work great with mirrorless cameras, and are affordable. Soligor is a third-party budget lens brand. They can be found for a wide variety of mounts and under a number of different brand names. Thanks to the rock bottom prices, Soligor lenses are a bargain hunters dream.
