  This is a very fine-grain motion picture slide film with about 20 exposures per roll. It expired in 2008 but is still giving wonderful results as you can see from my examples. It is a daylight motion picture film which was only ever sold in cans of 400 feet or more.

    I had the unique opportunity to acquire a bulk roll of this film so I have made a limited number of rolls available for purchase.

    As you can see, my tests with this rare film produced some nice results. When processed as regular E-6 the colors tended toward a lovely purple/magenta hue with nearly non-existant film grain. Cross-processing gives wild greens & yellows like an absinthe -inspired dream.

    This film has NO DX Code so you MUST have a camera that either allows manual ISO settings or one that automatically sets the ISO near 50 when a code is not detected to use this film. It  expired in 2008 but 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. This is NOT a stock product from Fuji and I am not proporting to represent that fine company in any manner.

My Examples: These were shot at ISO 50 with a Ricoh 500GX Rangefinder camera and developed at my local lab as regular E-6. Except the X-Pro example below which was Shot with an Olympus Trip35 and cross-processed in C-41 chemistry.
