I'm a bit confused. Infra-red photography is normally tackled in one of two ways. First, a Infra-Red filter (around 670nm) is placed in front of the lens to cut out virtually all visible light and only record the long frequencies. The second method is to physically modify the camera so that the sensor will only pick up these frequencies. The second method is pretty-much permanent and renders the camera useless for anything else. However, this only applies to digital cameras.
My confusion stems from the camera you've bought. The F65 is a film camera which requires a completely different approach. First, you'll need to track down some infra-red sensitive film, which come in two types: The true infra-red about 700nm, and the 'false' colour type which, although sensitive to the longer wave-lengths isn't really 'infra-red'. However, false colour film can provide very interesting and striking images.
Let us know a little more of what you're trying to do and we can look at it a bit closer.
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
