Generally speaking, I agree about EIR. You can still get it in medium
format for the time being, and I still have a stockpile of that as
well as some 35mm left. There has been a long-term fantasy floating
about the NB darkroom of milling our own 35mm out of the aerial stock
of EIR. No one has had the balls to do it, although I think Jas had
some ideas about it being possible.

But I admit I have been impressed by this guy's work with digital
infrared: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jw_wong/4582442103/
He is trying to emulate EIR and IE.

Same guy, IE film shot: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jw_wong/4603107436/

I've never worked with IE at all. It's long dead.
