  This is a very fine grain black & white film with a wide exposure lattitude. It comes with about 20 exposures in each roll. It gives a unique look and is great for experimentation. You can push it, you can pull it, and it develops in a wide range of developers including Rodinal and Caffenol! (see my examples).

    It will cover just about any situation you might encounter. You can shoot it from ISO 25 to 200 and get acceptable results with normal development. When shot at ISO 64 or below it produces a negative with extremely fine grain, while shooting at 200 gives fairly acceptable image. I haven't yet pushed past 400 but I'm sure the results at 800 or 1600 would be interesting.

    The thin-yet-super-strong, polyester base makes scanning a breeze due to it's virtually transparent surface. Additionally the emulsion exhibits an unusually high attainable maximum density for exquisite details.

    This film has no DX code. It is from a rarely seen cinematic stock made in Eastern Europe. This is dated 12/2014 and has been kept cool and dry since purchase.

   I'm keeping these rolls inexpensive by re-using old film cassettes and sticking on an artsy label I've made just so you know what's inside. Using a bulk loader I made rolls of approximately 20 exposures each, sometimes a bit more or less and as with most bulk loaded film the very last picture of each roll will not be exposed as that is where it is taped.
