This color Infrared View of the Falkland Islands (52.0S, 58.5W) was taken with a dual camera mount. Compare this scene with STS048-82-042 for an analysis of the unique properties of each film type. Comparative tests aids in determining the kinds of information unique to each system and evaluates and compares photography taken through hazy atmospheres. Infrared film is best at penetrating haze, vegetation detection and producing a sharp image.
