35mm BW Film - Film Washi S (1 Roll)
FILM WASHI "S" 35mm Sound Recording BW Film
36 exp / 50 asa / No DXCode
Film “S” is used by motion picture professionals for sound recording, which requires a very fine grain and ultra-high definition. This sharpness is guaranteed by a special anti-halation layer located between the film's base and the emulsion layer (as opposed to the back layer as with ordinary films). Film “S” is a panchromatic specialty film available in 35mm (and 120) 50 ISO. Film Washi recommends this film for when you want the combination of almost no grain and very high contrast.

Michael Raso says: the amazing thing about this film is that it was designed to record audio, not pictures! It was considered state-of-the-art during the Frank Sinatra heyday of the 1960s. A few of Frank’s (ahem, “Mr. Sinatra’s”) albums jackets boast “recorded on 35mm film!”. This film is also the Oreo of films! The anti-hilation layer is sandwiched between two other layers of emulsion – amazing!
This film stock is subject to "light piping" when exposed to room light. Please load in dim light and store in a dark camera bag before and after shooting. If storing your film in fridge, freezer or home shelf, store in a light tight bag as well. What is light piping? Read our blog by Leslie Lazenby. Film Washi is an experimental film.
