I have been a lurker on this site for several years and have found it very helpful. I have seen several post concerning the IR flash spooking deer or letting people see the camera at night. I've started putting an IR filter over the flash array of all my IR cameras. It is a thin filter made by Lee which can be cut and the edges glued over the flash. It is a Infra Red #.87 Polyester Filter. It does block all visible light from the LEDs. Although I have several camera types I have several Leaf Rivers so I called the folks at Leaf River to see if they knew if these filters would affect the range of the flash and they said they didn't know. I have not done any testing but I can see a slight reduction in range. Anyone else fooled around with this type filter?
