Default 18A (UV Black) Filters?

I'm looking for an 18A UV filter, can anyone advise if this filter is suitable for use with digital cameras (Fuji S2/3) & can it be used with normal (unfiltered) studio strobes and camera mounted flashguns.

Alan

You want a filter that blocks visible light and only passes UV? To use on a color-sensitive camera? The blue pixels might have some UV sensitivity, so maybe that would work. What result do you expect?

I want the 18A filter for photographing personal injuries (faded bruising etc), and I really wanted to know whether this filter & technique were compatible with digital cameras, namely the Fuji S2 or S3, However I have since been advised that the best solution may be to buy a second hand D50/70 and have it converted. Or I suppose I could just use a film camera.

Take a look at Bjorn Rorslett's site: http://www.naturfotograf.com/UV_IR_rev00.html#top_page

UV is trickier than IR, but it is do-able. I think the modified D70/D50 would work better than the Fuji.
